English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas

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. My go-to when life gets crazy is breakfast for dinner, so we’ve been eating a lot of pancakes, a lot of eggs,  a lot of French toast, and these English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas.

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.

how to make these

You’ll need 6 whole English muffins, 4 eggs at room temperature (cold ones are harder to whisk together), hot sauce, cheese, and desired toppings (I’m using ham, mushrooms, green onions, and sliced baby tomatoes).

You’ll also need some milk, salt, and a shallow dish like a pie plate.

English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas


Description

These English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas are made like a savory French toast and then topped with your favorite omelet fillings! These will become a quick family favorite for any meal of the day!


Ingredients

6 whole wheat English muffins at room temperature (if possible)
4 eggs, at room temperature (if possible)
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
About 10 dashes Tabasco sauce
12 thin deli slices of ham or 1012 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
3/41 cup shredded cheddar or pepper jack cheese
Optional: Chopped vegetables like green onions, tomatoes, sliced olives, mushrooms, green peppers, etc.


Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray liberally with non-stick cooking spray or brush with oil or melted butter. Set aside.
In a pie plate, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and Tabasco sauce. Gently pull apart each English muffin and soak each side (like you would for French toast) in the egg mixture–you want the egg mixture to soak into the bread, but you don’t want the English muffin to be completely falling apart. Place the muffin, cut side up, on the baking sheet.

If using ham, slice the ham into thin strips and then place on top of the English muffins. If using bacon, just sprinkle the crumbled bacon on top. Add any additional desired toppings and then sprinkle with shredded cheese. Bake for 15 minutes and serve immediately.


Notes

Freezer instructions:

After baking, loosen them from the baking sheet with a spatula and then allow them to cool completely. Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer. When the pizzas are solid, transfer them to a large Ziploc freezer bag. To reheat, place on a plate and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes at a time until the pizza is heated through (actual time will depend on how powerful your microwave is).

  1. 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.

  3. 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!
