Spooky Face Breakfast

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

This spooky face is an awesome and complete breakfast. In fact, if you stack everything up on the english muffin and close it into a sandwich it is a deluxe Egg McMuffin Sandwich. McDonald's eat your heart out. I made a smiling face because my kids are still young and I don't want them to be scared of Halloween but for your big kids you can make the face a little more gruesome by adding bloodshot lines in your egg eyes with ketchup and a grimacing mouth.

Serves: 4
Start to Finish: 30 minutes
Recipe By: Amber Brunson


4 eggs
4 english muffins, split
12 slices bacon
4 slices ham
1 green bell pepper
4 slices cheddar cheese
4 tsp butter
salt and pepper


1. Cook bacon in a large skillet until crispy.
2. While bacon is cooking, toast your split english muffins until golden brown.
3. When bacon is crispy, set aside and keep warm.
4. Drain bacon fat from pan.
5. In the same skillet, add 1 tsp butter.
6. When butter is melted add egg to the pan (cook one egg at a time; 1 tsp butter for each) careful not to break the yoke when adding the eggs to the pan.
7. Cook eggs sunny-side up. (I am not great at cooking eggs sunny-side up, it always takes me 3 tries before I get the hang of it. So don't get discouraged if your yolks don't come out perfect the first time.)
8. As eggs finish cooking, transfer them to your toasted english muffins.
9. Slice bell pepper to make the "hair" for your spooky face.
10. Using a cookie cutter or sharp knife, cut ham into round shapes.
11. Assemble your plate with salt and pepper garnishing the egg, ketchup garnishing the ham, and a cheese slice for the nose.
