Morsels of Life - 5 Friday Finds

For the month of September, Erin from Our Table for Seven has volunteered to co-host Five Friday Finds as I get ready and adjusted to baby!

Hope you enjoy these Five Friday Finds! And please link up your recipes below. You might even get featured! :) (Images come from the recipes and are pinned on Pinterest.)


Starting off with the most popular!


Tailgate Tots
Looks like bacon, jalapeno, chicken, and cheddar's a winning combination around these parts! Last week's most popular recipe included the same ingredients. Don't you agree? :)

To see the featured recipes, head over to Erin's blog, Our Table for Seven!

Hope you all have a fun and delicious weekend!

Morsels of Life - DIY Egg McMuffin

We still had a few English muffins leftover after making the Smoked Salmon Benedict. So I started thinking of other recipes using English muffins when I thought of the Egg McMuffin. Why not make my own version of a McMuffin? I only had Virginia ham instead of the usual Canadian bacon. We also prefer Cheddar cheese instead of the usual American. The hardest part of this recipe was finding a "ring" for making the egg. You could certainly use the Teflon-coated rings made for cooking these eggs. However, since I didn't have any and didn't want to buy one, I just opened up both sides of a can and used it instead. If you go this route, you'll want to use the cans with identical tops and bottoms instead of the ones you can easily stack.

What's your favorite breakfast food DIY?
