Egg Mick Muff-FUN

Eggs Make a Comeback With the Egg Mick Muff-Fun!

My kids went on an egg strike as in anything that resembled an egg would not pass their lips without an enormous amount of struggle.  This surprised me since we get our wonderful free-range eggs from our neighbor.  They are the best eggs with rich, golden yolks.

   So when I asked them this morning, would you like egg mcmuffins for breakfast like at McDonalds, I was astounded when they answered a resounding yes.  I was just going to toast English muffins with peanut butter if they said no thank you to the eggs. 

Browning the Turkey Sausage
   I started making the homemade turkey sausage. Once that was in the pan I popped the first English muffin in the toaster.  Once the sausage was done, I started the eggs.  They like when I break their egg yolks so they aren't messy, but I left mine whole. I flipped the eggs when they were done on one side and added a half of a slice of American cheese (not the processed kind) turning off the pan to  let the cheese melt while I prepped the remaining muffins.

   I asked my kids if they would rather have homemade breakfast or go to McDonalds.  My son's response was, "This is cheaper since you don't have to pay for gas."  With the English Muffins selling for 50 cents a six pack at Aldi it is a great deal.  They devoured their "special breakfast" and I can't wait to make them again.

Drumroll Please...

      I feel like my birthday month is still going on since this week I was able to have a shopping spree and lunch out with my gift certificates. Plus there is the upcoming trip to the theatre this weekend.  I can't wait!  I want to thank everyone for following along with my March Milestones cookbook contest. 

   All the comments really inspired me to reach my goal of 52 posts in a year.  Once I was on a roll, I couldn't stop writing!  I never dreamed when I started my blog a year ago that 3,000 readers would join me on my crazy recipe quest.  All the support from my local friends has been tremendous and having readers across the world is awesome.  Every time a new country was added to my stats, my son searched for it on his map.

       The Rachel Ray cookbook goes to our surprised winner Jenn Hurd.  Enjoy the book Jenn and please share with us your favorite new recipes!
