Better than McDonalds 3 minute Breakfast Sandwich!

I saw something similar to this on Pinterest a few months ago and thought with a few changes, it would be perfect.  Was I right! I didn't expect this breakfast sandwich to be nearly as good as it was. Best part is that after a little advanced prep, it only took me 3 minutes to make it this morning and it was a healthy breakfast for around 300 calories. If you do it with Egg Beaters, its even less!

Advanced Prep:
1 package of Center-Cut or Turkey bacon
12 eggs

Heat oven to 375. Cut bacon in half. Place foil on a cookie sheet and place bacon on the foil. Bake for 20 minutes. (I will never make bacon any other way!)

After bacon, decrease oven temperature to 350. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray. Beat eggs. Evenly pour into the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 15 minutes until eggs are set. Eggs will be very puffy when you take them out, but they drop as they cool. Allow to cool completely.

At this point, decide how quickly you will consume your eggs and bacon. If you're willing to share and will eat 12 in the next week, you can place them in an airtight container in the fridge. If not, place eggs on a cookie sheet and freeze for one hour. Place in freezer bags and freeze.

Morning Prep:
1 English Muffin
One baked Egg
3 half pieces of bacon
slice of low fat cheese
Low fat margarine or butter

Toast English muffin. Microwave egg for 30 seconds if refrigerated, 60 if frozen. Spread a little butter on the English muffin. Assemble sandwich. Microwave for 20 seconds. Wrap in a paper towel if taking in the car and it will keep it warm longer. I dropped my girls off at daycare and when I unwrapped it 15 minutes later, it was perfectly warm and delish!
