So I was procrastinating on Pinterest (because that is what it is FOR) and made myself a little Sunday Breakfast board.
And then I said to myself, Self, you could actually COOK these things you are pinning, (I KNOW! Totally novel idea!) and then your procrastinating would be totally working and you can reward yourself with a donut.
Only if you bake it yourself, obviously, because all the donuts around here taste like arse and raccoon spit, then Self and and I laughed our arses off and I am pretty sure that there is a pin out there where someone has calculated the calorie burning of LMAO – in both the abbreviated and the unabbreviated forms – and that along with the Ben Wa balls I have been exercising my pelvic floor with, would totally negate what I actually ate for breakfast this morning.
Exercise is exercise… they say only do what you enjoy.
I win at justifying sitting on my arse.
So anyway, I give you the first of my weekly (which will probably be just this one cause I will totally forget) Pinterest Sunday Breakfast.
A disclaimer: My intention was to follow each recipe in full and then post the results, but as always I fuck around with details so todays pin is just inspiration. I shall still share the link but will post what I did.
So the inspiration was not so much the egg and bacon muffinness but the pic in the bottom right hand corner… baking the eggs in jumbo muffin tins. Motherfucking INSPIRED.
And then as I was reading the post – about making a ton and freezing them and then MICROWAVING THEM OMG ICK – I saw that she had edited it add you can use muffin top tins and I was all OMG I HAVE MUFFIN TOP TINS and while I was looking for the muffin top tins I found the donut pans and fell over in shock because HELLO, PERFECTION.
Seriously, I bought these babies in a set of like 12 different shapes in a discount shop and was all set to make my own donuts but when I realised 1. the work involved and 2. they were baked and not fried and baked donuts are just freaking donut shaped cake, they were relegated to the cupboard in the hall where I found them 3 DAYS AGO and I am pretty sure that it was fate or something.
Cause these fuckers make the eggs the perfect size for muffins.
As suggested in the pin, I pierced the eggs and ground a fuck load of pepper on top because YUM.
Action shot with the heat from the oven fogging up my iphone… artistic.
The bacon had already been baking in the oven (OMG BRILLIANCE, can’t remember where I read that gem but seriously you will never ever cook it any other way again) for 10 minutes at 180C/350F…
When we chucked in the eggs so they could cook for another 10/15 minutes.
I sat down to check my emails and fuck around on pinterest while MPS toasted the muffins and made jokes about buttering my muffin (or that could have been me, the details are hazy) while Boo watched Gangnam Style and Charlie Bit Me on youtube.
20 mins for the bacon – turned over half way – and 10 for the eggs for the yolk just set.
Then after chucking them in a hot buttered muffin (bow chicka bow bow) and some avocado and cheese on those puppies we sat down to an awesome hot Sunday Breakfast of Bacon and Egg MB2Muffins and Morning Margaritas sans alcohol. So basically just juice in a Margarita glass but awesome all the same.
I like my muffins just slightly burnt. I live on the wild side.
If you close your eyes and concentrate really really hard it taste nothing like a margarita.
Ommm nommm nommm
Boo gives it 2.5 staplers out of 3. Yeah, I don’t know what the fuck that means either.
Have you actually COOKED something you have pinned on Pinterest? Do you have PROOF?
