So apparently we are a little breakfast crazy over here at Our Best Bites lately! To be completely honest, I don’t know what’s going on at Sara’s house, but at mine, things have been C-R-A-Z-Y for the last couple of weeks–2 kids, 2 different schools, one all-day, one half-day, church, work, house, blog, friends, soccer practice, homework–you know, everything you guys are doing and somehow keeping it together! And when things get crazy, my fall-back option is breakfast for dinner. So we’ve been eating a lot of pancakes, a lot of eggs, and a lot of French toast.

I know that breakfast pizzas are/have been/who-even-knows-these-days popular, but you guys know that I have egg issues. I wanted to make a breakfast pizza, but I didn’t want to deal with reheating eggs that weren’t wrapped in something like a burrito (yes, I know, I’m certifiable). Then I had an idea…with all of the eggs and all of the French toast…to make savory French toast rather than sweet, using English muffins, and then topping them with pizza-like toppings.


You still get the protein from the egg, but it’s in the muffin rather than on it. Which, as it turns out, I’m way more okay with.
All you do is whisk together some eggs, milk, hot sauce, and salt and then dip the English muffin halves into it like you would for French toast. Then place the muffins, cut side-up, on an oiled, lined baking sheet.


Top them with meat (if you want)


other toppings (again, optional) and cheese


Then just bake them in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes!


Super fast and easy, PLUS you can freeze them and reheat them on mornings when you’re short on time.

    Wow these look amazing! I haven't commented before, everything on the blog is always amazing! I've been thinking about things to put in the freezer after the back to school posts and this is a great one too. We live in Asia and were living in a city where all we could find were English Muffins and we were getting so tired of them — so this would have been great! But we just moved to a city where we can only find bagels now! Do you think it would work on bagels or do you think they would just be too chewy? Will definitely try these when we get back to an English Muffin land.

    Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! I have been trying really hard to send my new kindergardener to school with a full tummy, but have just been informed that he no longer likes pancakes, waffles, or rench toast. I'm praying that this will let us add variety without adding time!

    This is exactly what my mom used to make when we were growing up, but we made it pizza style and had them for dinners. We called them "pizzans". We made up a mixture of all the pizza toppings and cheese mixed together, with some pizza sauce stirred right in, then put a couple tablespoons on top of each muffin and baked them for a little bit until they were hot and bubbly. They are great for birthday parties or camping or anytime you want pizza without all the headache.

    Just got done with breakfast this morning….and these were a HIT! Super easy … barely any mess … and best of all, really, really good! Dipping them in the egg was perfect. I can imagine so many possibilities for these. Thanks, y'all!!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your site. I just keep finding (actually cooking) recipes from you ladies site and let me tell ya, if I already had a recipe, I've replaced it with yours. I tell everyone about it and just can't thank you enough! So yummy! You both are seriously talented, thank you for sharing.
    I did somehow miss who the winner of the giveaway was. When was that posted. I've looked over and over and figure I must be going crazy, (wouldn't surprise me) jk!

    Admission time: I didn't come right over when this recipe appeared in my email because it didn't look that wonderful. Boy, was I wrong!! Dipping the muffins in egg mixture is brilliant! I really should know better then to not trust you ladies- everything from your site always comes out perfect!

    Cool concept! We are going to have to try them. You can never have too many breakfast recipes, I say, because they can be eaten at any time of day! And as a side note, we tried your mini breakfast quiches two days ago. Deee-lish! My 10 year old devoured them. I couldn't get him to stop. I had to kick him out of the kitchen. Another fabulous concept and tasty recipe! Thanks for sharing.

    I made these for dinner last night and they were awesome. We had leftover mushrooms from a steak house and threw those on,adding cheese and scallions on top of that. It tasted awesome! Thanks so much for this cool idea.

    I made these for dinner last night with tomatoes from our garden and sage pork sausage. They were scrumptious, and I'm happy to have several more in the freezer for later! Thanks for the great recipe!!

    Ashley says:

    Yummmm! I didn't have english muffins in my kitchen but instead, I had french bread. They turned out great! I chopped up some sundried tomatoes and put them on before the bacon and cheese…. what a wonderful breakfast! :-)

    Tara says:

    OK these were even better than I thought they would be. Yum yum yum!!! All I had on hand were whole wheat bagel thins. They worked great. I poked holes in them so they would soak up egg better. Delicious and EASY!!!

    Tara says:

    I forgot to say… mine were ready in about 10 minutes. I've cooked them more than once and both times they were done before the 15 minutes the recipe states.

    I did these with ham, pepperoni, and some plain tomato. We loved these! Thanks for the yummy breakfast and/or dinner.

    The kids and I made these for Sunday breakfast this morning. We used fat free swiss cheese, pineapple and canadian bacon. They were a big hit! Thank you for this healthy, flavorful breakfast recipe :)

    I LOVED these! I’m not a huge breakfast fan, but these were fantastic (I made them twice in one week! The second time I made them I forgot to buy more English muffins, but had a recipe for an English muffin bread loaf – worked just as well!)

    GENIUS. We’ve been doing the breakfast thing these days too. Stupid husband travels (I love him, he’s not stupid, his job is) too much these days.

    This is a great, GREAT!, idea. Brilliant! My son doesn’t eat lunch at school (the hours are weird and either very early or almost at the end of school) so when he gets home at 2:30 he’s ready to eat something and this looks like it would be perfect. I’m so making this tomorrow for him when he gets home!

  44. 44

    I’m so glad you posted these on FB yesterday. I don’t know how I missed this recipe! I made them tonight and WOW were they good!! I topped mine with ham, spinach, onion, mushrooms and pepper jack cheese. Major YUM!!!

    Missy says:

    Okay, so I have been a long-time silent fan of this website. I don’t know why THIS recipe is the one that made me comment, because honestly, I should have done it a long time ago with all of the yummy things I’ve made from here… but these were FAB. I just made up a pan for lunch (with extras for breakfasts) and boy howdy, these are tasty! I can’t wait to see how they reheat. So to sum up, I love these, I love your taquitos, taco chicken, chipotle ranch dressing, flank steak…. there are more, I know I’m just forgetting. In fact, there hasn’t been a recipe here that I’ve tried and didn’t like.

    Thank you for being so delicious! :)

    Kate says:

    Thank you for solving my egg issue! I am the SAME as you: Breakfast burritos from the freezer, okay. Having left-over scrambled eggs for breakfast sandwiches, or a visible “egg slice” or something from something frozen, or manufactured, no. Maybe just seeing that egg thing turns me off, whereas in a burrito its hidden. Anyway, having the muffin as FRENCH toast then solves the nuked egg issue, and toppings can be savory or sweet, or none at all! Yay!

    I just stumbled on this recipe and this is perfect for us. I hope you’ll see my silly question, but if you add tomato, would you just chop some up and add before or after baking? Just not sure how the tomato would hold up during baking.

    Michelle says:

    I foiled and oiled but mine still stuck. Do you only dip one side into the egg? Maybe it was because I used ciabatta…but I thought someone else had used that too without mentioning trouble. I still love the idea, so I will try again.
