SPICES OF LIFE
First thing first.
I am not a cook. My mom is the cook in the family and she had refused to allow me into the kitchen since I was born. As a result, even frying an egg sound foreign to me. Many times I tried to step into the kitchen, only to be shoo away.
After 4 decades , I decided to step into my own kitchen. This time Mom was not in to stop me from creating a
After chancing upon this video , I had an urge to prepare breakfast for the family. Since that was the first time in the kitchen, I prayed I will not harm my family in any way.
The dish I am preparing is the Chessy Bacon Egg Muffin. You just need 3 main ingridents to prepare
- Cheddar Cheese ( or any other cheese)
This is a fairly well known dish. I am not the first to prepare it but that was the first time I am preparing a 'proper' dish for the family!
|Preparing the bread|
Step 1 : Preparing the bread
Use a cup to cut the bread to size to fit the muffin tray. Do pre-oil the tray to prevent the bread from sticking to it ( something I learn AFTER it was bake)
Step 2 : Place the bacon on the tray
Too simple step to elaborate
Step 3 : Dump the cheese in
As much as you like, the cheesier the better!
Step 4 : Crack and egg
Do try not to break the yoke.
Step 5 : Add some pepper
If you like spice, otherwise it is as good without especially for kids.
Step 6 : Place in oven and bake for 15 mins at 210 °C
Step 7 : Take it out of the oven
Er... ok I added this step so you can see how it looked with when cook
Step 8 : Eat it fast!
Eat it while it is hot and the egg yolk should ozze out when cut. After 10 minutes, the yoke will be harden.

Honestly , it was as simple as it looks. It was an easy meal to prepare, but it might just be the dish to motivate me to cook more for the family. As a bonus, the kids finished not one but two of them. I guess this meant they loved it. Sometimes life need not be complicated. A simple dish like this brings out satisfaction in the family. That is perhaps the true value of the dish.
