Breakfast and Dinner

I made egg muffins for breakfast today!  I was a little leery of them at first, I wasn't sure if I'd like the texture, or something. I'm not sure, maybe I'm just weird.

So today, I bit the bullet and tried it out! I made four little muffins

First, I cooked up a few pieces of bacon until they were almost done, then placed them in a muffin tin to make little cups.  Then, I cracked an egg into each cup and sprinkled it with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Then baked em for about 12 minutes at 400f.

This is what I got:

They turned out great!  My yolk had hardened up a bit more than I anticipated, but the top was nice and gooey.  I will definitely be making them again. It was very easy!

For dinner the other night, I made something a bit special for my hunny and I.

I went to Whole Foods and picked up two burger patties--one was green onion and garlic, and the other was BBQ.  

I sliced some onions and put them in a pan to caramelize while I prepped some sweet fries.  I took thin pieces of bacon and wrapped them around some of the sweet fries, covered about half the pan, then put just regular sweet fries on the other half.  After I popped those in the oven, I began cooking the burgers.  

This is my dinner plate:

(then I drenched my burger in my ranch dressing)  

I didn't think sweet potato and bacon would go as well together, but it was a delicious match.  It was reminiscent of bacon-wrapped dates, but not as sweet, which was fine by me.  Hunny really enjoyed the meal too.  The onions came out perfectly! I was moaning over them as I would taste-test them while they cooked, haha!  What can I say, I'm a girl who loves her onions.

Tonight, hunny and I are going to Elephant Bar! I'm very excited to try something new!
