That being said, I never understood how anyone could be grumpy first thing in the morning. When I was younger, if I showed the least bit of grumpiness my Pa would always say, “What’s there to be grumpy about? You just got up, nuthin’ bad even had a chance to happen yet”. When you think about it…he’s right. So I’m happy in the morning cause it’s another day that I’m up and healthy and breathing and ready to face whatever the day holds for me. Think of the alternative non-morning people, and maybe you’ll start to appreciate your mornings a bit more.
So Saturdays are the three C's day here. Cleaning, chores and cooking. We like to get everything done so that way we have Sunday to relax and be lazy. We like to start the Three C’s day off with a good breakfast. That also ensures that I don’t hear…..”I’m hungry” as an excuse to stall on chores. Fill ‘em up and get ‘em to work.
This recipe started off from a clipping stored in my recipe basket. I have no idea where I got it from. I changed it around quite a bit and made it my own. These would be great for a brunch or shower. Little mini omelettes for everyone!
Bacon & Cheese Omelette Cups
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup finely chopped onions
6 large eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash, or your favorite seasoning
1 tablespoon parsley
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled (that was 1 pound before cooking for me)
2 ½ English muffins, crumbled
Preheat the oven to 400. Grease 2 muffin pans. In a small skillet melt the butter over medium heat and cook the onion until tender. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, chives, pepper & seasoning. Stir in the cheese, crumbled bacon and crumbled English muffins. Add in the cooked onions.
