Bakin’ in Baconia!

Standard

Greetings and Salutations from Castle Baconia – King Teddy at your service!

That’s right – here I am again in the kitchen of the castle we all know and love…………the place where bacon HAPPENS!    We love our bacon here and we know you do too.   Every Saturday I toss our castle chef out of the kitchen to give him a break and I take over – I show you some great recipes I find that use BACON in the ingredients and trust me – they are all beyond delicious.   Most of these we have had at least once and in some cases REPEATEDLY because they are just so darn yummy.

Today’s is EXTREMELY easy………..but just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it’s not tasty!    READY?????

Cheddar Bacon Chicken Tenders

Ingredients

1 egg

1/2 cup Progresso plain panko crispy bread crumbs

1/2 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
5 slices fried bacon (yes you can use more or less as you want!!)
1 package (14 oz) uncooked chicken tenders (not breaded)

Directions

Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In shallow bowl, beat egg. In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, place bread crumbs, cheese and bacon. Dip chicken into egg. Place in bread crumb bag; seal and shake to coat. Place chicken on cookie sheet.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center and bread crumbs are golden brown.
Do I have to tell you how crispy/yummy/delicious these are?   Can be a snack OR serve with a vegetable of your choice and it can be dinner………or lunch…………WHATEVER!   Chicken and bacon make a swell combination.   My Mom uses panko bread crumbs for almost ALL her baked meats and even her fried chicken.

YES INDEEDY WE ALL DO ON SATURDAYS HERE IN THE CASTLE!

People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones! Right?

Hey guy – if our castle cook ever leaves us, you’re HIRED!

Happy Saturday to all Baconians from your King

Bakin’ in Baconia

Standard

It is I – your King of Baconia – King Teddy

and we’re bakin’ with bacon this morning!

Who says a King can’t cook right?   Right!    I invade the castle kitchen every single Saturday morning to bring you some fun stuff made with bacon in mind because we all are – after all – BACONIANS!

Today I have an EASY EASY EASY recipe but it’s quick and tasty and my Dad LOVES these for breakfast.    Ready??

I’m waiting to sample what you’re making King Teddy!

BRING IT ON YOUR ROYAL HIGHNESS!

King Teddy’s Easy Bacon/Egg/Toast Cups

Equipment:

One muffin tin – doesn’t matter if it’s a six or twelve or more size – however many of these eggs you want to make!   My Mom uses a 6-muffin size tin – five for Dad and one for her (!!!!!).

Ingredients:

However many eggs you want to cook

However much bacon you want to use but at least one strip per egg cup

One slice of bread for each egg cup you’re making

How To Make them:

Preheat your oven to 400.   Butter the inside of the muffin tins.    Cut the crusts off your bread and roughly fashion into a “sort of” circle and tuck a slice of bread into each muffin tin fitting it to the cup snugly.   Put the tin with bread into the oven and let it toast in the 400 degree oven about 5 minutes until lightly browned.    Cook bacon until it’s cooked but still “pliable” and drain.   Turn oven down to 350.    Take a piece of bacon and wrap around the interior of each muffin cup…….then crack an egg into the “cup” – you can top with a little cheese if you want to.    Bake in oven about 15 minutes or until the whites are set.

They will just pop right out of the muffin tins onto the plate – You can use a fork or spoon to take them out…….!

Your family will think the bacon fairy granted their wish – these are easy and delicious!

So you just can’t get much easier than this so give it a try.    I will also tell you that Mom makes these sometimes NOT using the toast – she will line the muffin tin cups with a slice of ham then add the egg, cheese and bake.   Interesting but with the bread it really is fabulous to have everything inside a crusty bit of bread.

YES INDEEDY WE ALL DO ON SATURDAYS HERE IN THE CASTLE!

Happy Saturday from the kitchen of Castle Baconia!

Baking is exhausting – I shall now retire to my chair for a snoozer…….

With Kingly Hugs, King Teddy

 

On a sad note………….

Before we leave we want to say a final farewell to yet another friend………..Mr. Buttons, from the family of Timmy Tomcat – has taken his final trip to join all the other Angels we all know and love and miss.    He had kidney disease and fought a hard fight to stay with his big kitty family and his Dad.    If you haven’t left a message for them, you can visit them HERE to leave one.   Farewell Mr. Buttons.
