Thanksgiving is coming in the summer, and for some families, dinner preparation will be non-stop from 5 a.m. until the forks hit the plate. I know some people will claim to fast until the big meal, but I don’t think you should be hitting the court without warming up first: There’s No Shame at Thanksgiving Breakfast, But There Is lack of time. Instead of taking away valuable seconds from your careful consideration—dinner outto present Schedule, batch-bake some hand-held eggs for your family, then send them back in a jiffy Out of the kitchen until the main event.
For an easy Thanksgiving morning breakfast, youSee your limitations to your advantage. stove-top is probably off limits, but Your oven is on, has two racks, and is already cranking at 325°F – 350°F. Liberally butter a 12-well cupcake pan. Crack as many eggs as needed, one into each divot, and sprinkle with salt. I follow the two eggs per person rule, but live life as you please. If you’re feeding more people, and you have oven space for hot minutes, use two muffin tins. Fifteen minutes before you’re ready to eat, slide the pan to a free section in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, depending on how set you want the yolks. If you have a spare sheet pan, invert that one over the cupcake pan. it’s definitely not a essentialbut it can reduce the cooking time by a few minutes, because it will generate some steam and direct heat close to the surface of the egg.
Once the eggs are out of the oven, you can scoop them up easily out of the pan with a spoon. The assembly is up to the members of your family. Grab one and eat it in the hand, pop it on an English muffin with some cheese, or wrap it in a tortilla with hot sauce. A hearty, quick snack like this one will keep people from scouring your workplace looking for snacks, and warm your belly for two-Dinner and dessert later.
If you have fridge space, prepare this breakfast ahead of time by buttering cupcake pans and loading them with eggs the night before. Just be sure to cover it well so the eggs don’t dry out. If you only have a small footprint available, crack an egg into a measuring cup the night before, cover it, and pop it in the fridge. The next morning you’ll need to butter the pan, but you won’t have to worry about cracking the eggs. For those who can’t resist mixing up the flavours, make mini baked omelettes. Prepare everything the same way, but beat the eggs, and add some herbs, or chopped pieces of ham and cheese, to the wells of the cupcakes. Pour the egg mixture into the cupcake pans and bake as usual.
