what's for breakfast?

a little while back one of my favorite bloggers, the pioneer woman, posted a recipe that made me drool...make ahead muffin melts. i had to have them. and so i did. the recipe was so easy to prepare -- my favorite kind of meal. you make the egg/bacon/cheese mixture the night before you want to eat it and keep it in the fridge. the next morning all you do is slop the mixture onto english muffins and bake! this recipe makes quite a few muffin melts, and would be perfect for a brunch where you are having people over. who wants to get up early and prepare a big meal for company? if you made these muffin melts you would just prepare them the night ahead and then roll out of bed right before your guests arrived! and they aren't just a breakfast food. i ate them for breakfast, lunch, and a midnight snack! my dad & i think they would make a tasty appetizer as well, if you quartered the english muffins.
if you have not checked out the pioneer woman's blog, you should do that as well, she has so many yummy recipes on her blog, as well as other fun stuff, and fabulous giveaways! watch out, her blog is highly addictive. her recipes are always well-written, and she adds photo instructions, which i love.
if you are already a pioneer woman fan...tell me, what is your favorite recipe of hers?
