Egg Shortcut for Homemade Breakfast Sandwiches

My family is always in a rush in the morning.  I am so not a breakfast person, unfortunately my family suffers a bit because of my issue.  To help with this problem I try to make things in bulk (such as french toast sticks), freeze and voila quick and easy breakfast that everyone can do on their own.  The grocery store had a killer deal on some of the canned refrigerator biscuits so I decided to put together some breakfast sandwiches.
They were tasty and have been a good change to the breakfast rut we sometimes get into.
The coolest shortcut I found for this is to bake your eggs in a muffin tin.
Shortcut Baked Eggs
adapted from Beauty and Bedlam
There is no true recipe for this it is more of a technique.  You can use the crack and dump method, scramble, or add anything you wish to make little omelets.  
I used:
12 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Spray your muffin tins with cooking spray.
I whisk it up in a bowl and divided into 24 muffins (about 1/4 cup each) ( I have seen it recommended to use a silicone muffin tin because the eggs do not stick and you can just pop them out. )
Here is the MAIN CONCERN I want to warn you about – rubbery eggs. This will happen if you over cook these.  Bake them at 350 degrees for ten minutes. Every oven heats differently plus, once you remove the eggs, they will still continue to cook a bit until they have cooled down, so set the timer for 8 – 10 minutes and check.  Mine took 8 minutes but your might need up to five more minutes.  Let them cool for a few minutes and pop them out of the tins.
I used a knife to run around the edged and slip underneath the eggs to loosen them from the tins.
Now you can cool and flash freeze or build your sandwiches.  I chose egg, cheese and sausage this go around.
My biscuits were a little big, but still tasty!!
I wrapped them individually and then put them in freezer bags and froze.
I will be doing this again.  It was quick simple and great for the kids!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
