I’m not usually good at coming up names for recipes, but this one came to me easily.
If you are the kind of person to cry over spilled milk, this recipe may not be for you.
But even with the spilled milk, it’s delicious. And super easy. I took the 5 Minute Mug Macaroni and Cheese recipe and combined it with a four ingredient macaroni and cheese recipe. Rather than cooking the macaroni noodles in water first, I directly cooked them with milk in the microwave. The recipe is ready in about 4 minutes.
When cooking the noodles in the microwave, the water will boil over. The same thing happens with the milk. Hence the name.
The Mission is one of our favorite local brunch spots. The food is good, the quantities generous, and the prices reasonable. Recently DH and I met some friends for brunch there.
As usual, the place was crowded and they don’t take reservations. If you don’t like the wait and you are alright with eating late, I recommend coming after 1 because I’ve noticed that’s when the brunch crowd clears. Before 1 and the wait time is about an hour. After 1pm and you can walk right in.
I’ll keep this post short and sweet. You can read my old post for a more thorough review. Here’s what we ordered:
PAPAS CON CHORIZO 8.95
Soy chorizo with crispy potatoes, black beans, jalapeños, cheese, salsa, scallions, chipotle crema and avocado slice. Served with large whole wheat tortilla
MISSION FRENCH TOAST 8.95
Fresh baked cinnamon bread on a palette of berry puree.
The Mission french toast is pretty famous and it’s the best French toast I’ve had in San Diego.
I added bacon and crispy rosemary potatoes to counter the sweetness. The potatoes are pretty popular and I love them. The rosemary adds a great flavor and the potatoes are so crispy they are almost like fries. I usually don’t like breakfast potatoes, but I always order the version here.
Aren’t these so cute? And they are tasty too. Eat your bacon and eggs for breakfast in this mini form.
Because I used mini muffin molds, I couldn’t fit a full sized yolk, so I decided to fill the bacon cups with scrambled eggs. Unlike my previous bacon breakfast cups, the bacon is not only a ring around, it’s an actual mini bacon cup, so it holds eggs or whatever else you want to put inside.
