From the outside these look like ordinary muffins, but break one open and you’ll find a whole egg inside. The muffin batter has cheddar cheese and anything else you’d like such as bacon and ham. Together, you can have all your breakfast favorites rolled into one.
The muffin batter actually tastes like cheese biscuits because of the cheese and because it’s such a thin layer around the egg. Still tasty though. And I love finding a surprise in the middle.
These are perfect for a breakfast treat. You can even make them ahead of time, keep them in the fridge for on the go.
Breakfast Surprise Muffins
6 eggs, cooked to soft boiled (I use this egg timer to know when it's at soft boiled)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk + 1 tbsp milk
1/2 cup crisped bacon or ham chopped into tiny pieces
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1. Make eggs ahead of time. When eggs are cool enough to remove shell, gently tap egg on all sides to create multiple cracks. Take a small sharp spoon to get underneath the shell to help remove shell as it will be hard to remove from egg white when it's at soft boiled stage.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 12 muffin pan with 6 liners.
3. Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Add in vegetable oil, egg and milk into flour mixture and stir until batter is smooth. It will be sticky. Fold/stir in cheese and bacon or ham. Take a handful of muffin batter and cover egg with it, spreading a thin layer across entire egg. Place into muffin mold. Repeat with remaining eggs and batter. Bake for approximately 16-18 minutes until golden brown.
