Doesn't it just stink that it takes so much time in the kitchen to cook and prepare food, then it seems like in no time it's gone?! I certainly feel that way, but we all have to eat, and unless we buy boxed or prepackaged things, homemade things do require time. One good thing is if you make a big enough batch of something, you have extra to put in the freezer for another time. I found some granola bars in the freezer the other day while I was cleaning it out and got excited because I forgot they were in there!
I find breakfast the more difficult meal to prepare in advance. Don't think we don't ever open a box of cereal or prepackaged oatmeal because we defintely do. Time seems so limited in the mornings and standing at the stove is the last thing I have time for, unless it's the weekend. I mentioned before about some breakfast muffins I made over the weekend I wanted to share, although unfortunately, this recipe made a dozen which due to the size of them isn't quite enough to freeze part of them. I also made some granola muffins at the same time I made these for Sloan to have for breakfast or snack; of course, he eats about half of one and then doesn't want the rest...wasteful kid.
From time to time I will buy chorizo at the store, mainly to use in a breakfast type dish. I had bought some a while back, and I didn't have a pie crust to use so I thought I would hunt up a muffin recipe to try. The recipe I found is a Paleo recipe, but I changed a few things about it. I did not use coconut oil in my recipe, and I only used six eggs; I don't like my muffins too eggy!
These were delicious fresh out of the oven, and even reheated they make quite a tasty breakfast! It was like a mini quiche, portable style!
