Bacon and eggs...in a muffin! These are great for "grab and go". This makes 4 large muffins (Texas muffin tin size - Note 3). This recipe isn't suitable for ordinary size muffin tins as it isn't large enough to hold the egg and batter.

9. Ham and Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

This recipe gets tons of flavor thanks to Arla Dofino Smoked Gouda. The cheese is simply their regular Gouda that gets it’s smoky flavor from a dance with hickory wood chips. Because it’s a softer cheese it melts like a dream.


The latest egg creation are these Frittaffles. That’s right, Frittaffles – a breakfast fusion offrittatasand waffles
