The McMum

“The make-ahead-made-by-mom-egg-McMuffin”

My kids nicknamed this breakfast The McMum.  It’s a really great make-ahead breakfast for busy weekday mornings.  Double or triple what you would normally make for your family and you have breakfast for the next few mornings (or if you have teenagers like I do -an after school snack!).


HOW TO: Lightly oil a muffin tin.  Then, similar to lining each hole with a paper liner when baking muffins, line each hole with a piece of ham (you can also use other lunch meets like turkey, mortadella or salami).  Crack an egg right inside each one.  Sprinkle a little salt and pepper (I also like a little dash of paprika!) on top and bake in a 350°F degree oven until cooked through and firm (about 15 minutes).

Remove the muffin tin from the oven and allow to cool on a baking rack.  Gently remove each McMum and place them in a Tupperware or a plate with plastic wrap over top and store in the refrigerator.  To re-heat simply place in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds (but they are good cold too!).  Serve as is or on a whole wheat English muffin with cheese.
