and so the kids think I'm a "geeeeenius!"

The kids love egg sandwiches here.

It's a simple enough meal, but trying to fry or microwave that many, usually means someones waiting a long time...and usually the first one is ready for seconds before the last one is served. Last night I tried something new (to me) and it worked like a charm. I scrambled a dozen eggs with a little milk, and poured the egg mix evenly into 20 well sprayed muffin pans. Popped them into the oven and baked them for 25 minutes. At the end I threw on a 1/4 slice of American cheese. At the same time I baked 2 tubes of pop-out refrigerated biscuits (20 total.) The eggs popped out of the muffin pans beautifully, and were served on the split biscuits. All were ready at the same time. They were perfect bite-size sandwiches for little hands...most of the older kids had two. Everyone's happy, and all is right with the world.
Next time I want to experiment with adding veggies or meat like onions, sausage, ham bits, to make little omelet sandwiches. Yumm.

sounds perfect! I also had a biscuit egg sandwich just a few days ago. Felt like I was at McDonalds!
