Well, I’ve finally gone and done it. I have officially tried to re-invent the muffin. One day while I was sitting by the fire on a weekend morning at the trailer, I was trying to figure out what I was going to make G and I for breakfast. As I sipping my coffee and enjoying the serenity of the forest I started thinking about how can I wrap bacon around hash browns or leftover potatoes and egg all in one small dish. Well the following is what I came up with. I didn’t have it that day, it actually took me a month or so to actually try it for the first time. So, here’s the story and pics to show ya how it all went down.

First I had to find something that was going to be a great host for all of this goodness, I thought what better than a ramakin or a muffin tin. So my basic plan was to just lay a few strips over the cup in a cris-cross type pattern.. That is what I did, but then I realized after putting down two strips in the shape of an x that if I had to lay down two more then the thickness on the bottom would be way to much to cook evenly and then the bacon would definetly not get crispy. So what I decided to do was lay down two strips and then cut some very small pieces to fill in the other 4 open spots. Boom, I thought I was a genius,,lol. So what I did next was all part of my original plan as well. I chopped up some leftover baked potatoes and filled the bacon cup half full.

After the bacon was put in place and the potatoes are holding fort, this is where it gets crazy!! I wanted to have this dish so that after the bacon was crisp and the potatoes were done the egg would be cooked to a nice over easy type consistency. This way when you sliced in to the nice crisp bacon you would pierce the egg yoke and it would run all over the potato. God, this sound like an even better idea now.

so that was the goal, let me actually finish telling you how it did go. I pre heated the oven to a temp of 400 F. I set the timer for 10 minutes and set the muffin tray inside the oven, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. So after the first 10 minutes I opened the oven door and sadly realized that they were far from done. Set the timer for another 5 minutes and still no real change. The bacon was definitely frying and the egg was even starting to pop out between the bacon strips. It looked pretty cool though. So then I set the oven to broil for another 4 minutes.

I then removed the the muffin tray from the oven. So in total I cooked them for about 20 minutes. They were still not cooked as much as I wanted. As I was saying earlier, my expectations were to have a nice crispy muffin looking thing that would ooze egg all over the hash browns waiting inside. That did happen but the bacon ended up being a lot less cripy and the dish just didn’t work out. I will be trying this again and again if necessary to get this perfected. I think this would be one of the best breakfast bites you could ever have.

So it’s a work in progress. take care and keep the fire hot. sorry but to see the pics you will have to visit my site.

ya know this is a great idea , im thinking that if you half cook the bacon before you put those together , it might help the bacon to crisp up .
