|This crescent is almost a foot long!|
This is my attempt to outbreakfast McDonald's. Granted, there are times it is just too convenient to stop for a meal on the road. But it is nice to smell breakfast being prepared in your own kitchen, too.
Auntie Melanie's Breakfast Crescents
13 oz. turkey bacon (though real bacon is truly meat candy)
12 oz cheddar cheese
2 large crescents
Fry bacon in a frying pan, and drain on paper towels.
|The poaching cups came from Wal-Mart.|
Crack one egg into each cup of egg poacher base. Pierce each yolk with fork, and add 1/2 tsp water to each cup. Cook the two eggs for 1 min. 15 seconds--1 min. 40 seconds. Let eggs stand 30 seconds before removing cover to allow eggs to finish cooking.
Slice the crescents in half, two eggs on the the bottom, then cheese, then bacon, then cheese. These large crescents, which I purchased from the bakery of a local grocery store, will take three or four pieces of bacon. Replace the top of the crescent. You can pop them into the microwave for about 10 seconds to melt the cheese. Hopefully, someone has already brewed a fresh pot of coffee. Serves one, or you could cut it in half and share.
