All-in-one breakfast muffin
So I am now connected on to the KF Seetoh Facebook, you know the Makansutra guy. Well the World Street Food Congress is a happening again soon – remember me with Bourdain last time… So I was reading his Facebook and then he posted a picture of his breakfast, then stated it was not his conception. So Amy (my sous chef) and I did some research and found a video of this lady making the very same dish. So of course I wanted to then have a go at making this, but as ways I decided to jazz it up a tad too. Here come The Semi-Naked Chef’s All-in-one breakfast muffin.
To make 4 All-in-one breakfast muffin you will need;
- 6 slices of white bread;
- 12 slices of prosciutto, bacon, or ham;
- 4 eggs;
- 4 teaspoons of finely chopped garlic;
- Tabasco sauce;
- Worcestershire sauce;
- A knob of butter; and
- A good pinch of salt & pepper.
Melt the butter in the microwave. Then brush the butter in to a muffin tin x4 cups (is that what they’re called?)
Take a circular cutter and cut the slices of bread in to circles. If you don’t have a cutter you could just use a knife to cut a circle in the bread. Then with your hands flatten the bread down a little, basically making it thinner and more pliable. Cut the circles in half and then put two halves in to each of the four muffin tin cups. You’ll likely still have a hole at the bottom where the bread won’t join, hence the 2 spare slices of bread. Simply plug the hole with the spare bread. In effect you creating a holder for the other ingredients. Use the remaining butter on the exposed side of the bread. So now you have buttered cups and buttered bread.
Lay your prosciutto in to the bread cups. If you’re using bacon, you’ll need to cook that first, but stop before it is crispy as you’re going to bake these in the oven which will crisp it up. Prosciutto is already cured so you don’t need to cook it, and the baking will just crisp it up nicely.
Crack an egg on top of the prosciutto. Add a few drop of Worcestershire sauce, and Tobasco and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Pop this in to pre-heated oven at 220 degrees.
This will then take about 10 minutes for the bread to toast, the prosciutto to crisp, and the egg to cook and set.
Once done use a knife to cut around the bread and carefully lift out your All-in-one breakfast muffin. That’s it – done. They look absolutely great, and they taste amazing. Plus pretty simple to get to the end result I think you will agree. Kids will love this, I promise you, just maybe lose the Tobasco. No cutlery needed, just pick em up and pop em in your gob. I would think also perfect to take out and about for picnics etc. and even for breakfast on the go, you could drive and eat this!!!
So have a go folks. And be creative. How about adding some cheese, or some Thyme for example.
