Eggs – in a muffin tin..

I like biscuits and English Muffins.  I also like making breakfast sandwiches.  I seen a pin on Pinterest for cooking eggs in a muffin tin to make them round, I WAS going to try and use a mason jar ring on a skillet to see if I could get a round shape, but trying the muffin tin sounded easier.  Here are my eggs in a muffin tin.  Some are scrambled and some are not.  I only ate the not scrambled ones, they were delish!

eggs in a muffin tin

Directions:

real difficult… get your pen and paper.. okay, ready?

Break open egg into greased muffin tin (I used coconut oil).  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-18 min depending on how done you would like your egg, keep in mind the egg will continue to set/cook after you remove it from the oven.  If you want the scrambled ones, scramble the egg up in a bowl first.   Shewwwwie that was rough! 😉

We ate these with sausage, and a homemade honey-butter spread on English Muffins, they made for a delicious, quick and easy breakfast.

Kefir Smoothie (Probiotic, Antioxidant)

Kefir Smoothie

  • 1 cup fresh organic fruit
  • 1/2 organic kefir (I use pomegranate milk kefir)
  • 1/2 frozen organic berries
  • 1/4 cup frozen organic spinach (smoothie in picture has a little less because I ran out)
  • 1 T raw honey
  • 1 tsp diatomaceous earth, food grade
  • A pinch each of organic cinnamonturmeric and cayenne

This smoothie has strawberries for the frozen berries and the fresh fruits are a combo of strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and watermelon.

Spicy Southern BBQ Chicken

This recipe I used to make years ago.  I came across the recipe recently and decided to give it a try using organic ingredients instead of  *cough* what I used to make it with. Here is what I did and it turned out quite nicely, definitely a repeater.

     Spicey Southern BBQ Chicken

  • 2 lbs Chicken pieces (I like to use strips of breast meat)
  • 1 med Onion, sliced
  • 1 c  Chicken broth
  • 2 T  Vinegar
  • 2 T  Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 T  Chili powder
  • 2-3 T  Honey, Maple syrup or other natural sweetener of your choice
  • 2 t  Hot pepper flakes
  • Black pepper to taste
  • dash or two of turmeric

Place chicken in a 9×13, then place onion slices over top of the chicken.  In separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour mixture over chicken and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until cooked thoroughly, basting with mixture occasionally.

Healthier Seasoned Sausage Balls

  Seasoned Sausage Balls (HGN Style)

  • 5 cups of my Quick Mix Baking Mix
  • 2 1/2 lbs sausage (you can use beef, pork, turkey or chicken; I used all natural pork here)
  • 3 cups shredded raw cheddar cheese
  • 1 t minced onion
  • 2 t Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 1/4 t turmeric

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly until all ingredients are incorporated entirely and it is all sticking together…. yes, this will require your hands so remove your jewelry and scrub up ;).  Pinch off enough to roll into 1-1 1/2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet.  Bake in 350º oven for 20 minutes or until cooked thoroughly and a nice browning has taken place.  Yields approximately 85-90 sausage balls, so adjust recipe to the size you need or freeze the extra for quick breakfasts or snacks. My kids like them with ranch dressing, my bbq (you can buy that here) or maple syrup, I like them plain. ENJOY!

Vanilla Blueberry Apple Cinnamon Water

Say What?!?!

Okay, so this started out as an apple and cinnamon water, but as I was putting it together I just started throwing other things in….. sooooo anyway, here is what we got:

Vanilla Blueberry Apple Cinnamon Water

  • 2 Apples, diced
  • 1 c Blueberries
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 T Cinnamon Powder
  • 3 T Honey
  • 2 t Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Gallons Water

Put all ingredients together and refrigerate overnight.  Drink off water for the next two days, you can add water, vanilla and honey to the mixture if you run out, but pitch after two days.
