Quick Scrambled Eggs and Bacon for a Crowd -- A Pinch of Joy

Quick Scrambled Eggs and Bacon for a Crowd -- A Pinch of Joy

We celebrated a college graduation this weekend with an open house.  We began with breakfast for first comers, had mid-day dinner and ended with afternoon snacks for the littles.  All day eats!  Everybody contributed a dish or two.  For breakfast we had pastries, coffee cakes, yogurt parfaits and melon slices.  I wanted a bit of protein to balance the meal so we invented Quick Eggs and Bacon on the fly.  Although we were probably not the first to execute the concept, we had a perfect product!

I took a pound of bacon, cut the slices in half so that they were about four inches long.  I browned them in a skillet while sister in law Deb broke open a dozen eggs.  She whisked them thoroughly then added a quarter cup of milk, salt and pepper.  I sprayed the cups in two muffin tins with cooking spray.   When the bacon was starting to brown and turn crisp, we tried crisscrossing the pieces in the bottom of muffin cups.   Too hot to handle!  And it didn’t leave much room for eggs.  I ended up dropping a bacon slice half in each cup with tongs.  Deb followed up with the egg mixture, poured over and around the bacon slice until each muffin cup was about half full.  The oven was already preheated to 350 from baking a dinner dish. We popped the filled muffin tins in for ten minutes.

Perfect  little omelets, light, fluffy and tender eggs,  with crispy bacon in the middle.  Exactly what was needed to complete the breakfast menu.   Twenty-four omelets in about fifteen minutes.  And they disappeared in about three minutes flat.  That’s a five star rating through all age ranges. :-)

Congratulations to the class of 2016!  Especially one very happy college graduate and her very proud Dad and Deb!

We’ve focused so much on projects around the house that we haven’t been out and about much.  So we made up for it this past week and met some really wonderful people.  Following our last move, it was easy to meet people because kid activities were the priority.  Now there are so many available and meaningful ways to contribute to the community and  we are trying to be intentional with our choices.  I’m glad you are intentional about coming each week to share your latest posts.  Here are just a few of the great ideas shared last week.
