Cheesy 3-Meat Breakfast Cups

Cheesy 3-Meat Breakfast Cups

This easy breakfast  should probably be considered part of the “Busy Mom” series because it is so easy, but I usually make something like this when I have a little more time in the morning.

I whip these up when I can tell the kids are tired of the “breakfast usuals” and we have no pressing morning appointments.

I am not sure I have ever made 2 breakfast cups alike because they always depend on what I have on hand!

Speaking of on hand – let me tell you what you need to keep on hand so that you can make these when you find a surprisingly slower morning:

image

  • canned crescent rolls or biscuits
  • pre-cooked bacon, sausage, ham etc
  • a few of your favorite cheeses (I prefer block cheeses)
  • jelly 

image

Simply roll out the canned dough and cut into 12 equal ((approximately)) squares. If using biscuits I still roll them out a bit and cut them into squares and then toss a few squares into each cup along with the other ingredients.

image

Place one crescent square in the bottom of each muffin liner and top with a combo of pre-cooked meats.

image

Cube your favorite cheeses ((I used 3 oz. of sharp cheddar and 3 oz. Irish cheddar)).

image

Sprinkle the cubes over each cup & place into a preheated 375° oven.

image

Bake for approximately 14 minutes

image

and then serve with your favorite jelly. No leftovers with this one!
