When you're a maid of honor, your most important job should be making sure the bride eats on her wedding morning.
Heck, you should be worried about her eating at all during wedding week.
I didn't. I just didn't have time to sit at eat from the Wednesday before our wedding to the Sunday after it. And wedding morning? I had half a cup of orange juice and that was that.
I wouldn't recommend it. Instead, I would recommend making these 'Bout To Get Married Bacon-Wrapped Egg Muffins. They're super easy to make ahead of time. Then, bring them to where the bride is getting ready, pop them in the microwave, and enjoy.
'Bout To Get Married Bacon-Wrapped Egg Muffins
This is actually a spin on a recipe I've made before, but completely forgot about until my cousin blogged about it at Tales Of A Tired Mom.
So of course, I went ahead and made this batch so Pete and I could have breakfast for the week. It's so easy, plus, it sure beats having cereal or a granola bar every morning. And, I've gotta be honest: any morning that starts with bacon leads to a good day.
What You'll Need:
- 12 eggs
- 3 leaves of kale
- 1/2 an onion
- 3 large garlic cloves
- 6 green onions
- 12 slices of bacon
- cutting board
- saute pan
- muffin tin
- small bowl
What You'll Do:
Pre-heat the oven to 350.
Chop the onions and put them in a saute pan. Cook them over medium heat (with an optional drizzle of olive oil) until they start to become translucent.
While that's cooking, chop the onion and finely chop the kale (remove it from the "ribs" and then slice the leaves). If you're a slow chopper, the onions should be translucent when you're done chopping.
Saute everything until the kale is very wilted. Toss in a optional two pinches of salt if kale is bitter for you. If you're not into kale like me (I eat it raw, by itself), you can swap this for spinach. If you do, just make sure to check your teeth a zillion times before taking any wedding photos.
When this is done, remove it from the heat.
Line a muffin tin with a slice of bacon. Do this for every cavity in the tin.
Crack one egg into a small bowl, add the veggie mixture, and stir.
Pour that into the bacon-lined muffin tin.
I would recommend doing these one by one. I know, it's a little more time consuming, but you can assure they all have veggies that way. If you crack a dozen eggs into a bowl with the veggies and then scoop it that way, you'll end up with the vegetables sinking to the bottom of the mixture and only making it into the last few cups.
Bake for 25 minutes, until the bacon is cooked.
Store in an air-tight container until wedding morning. Pop them in the microwave and you're ready to go.
