French English Muffins

For anyone who doesn't read my FB page, here is something I dreamed up the other night while in bed, and now having brought it to fruition (and already into my tummy as breakfast) I submit my recipe for it to you.

I just made this. The way I had to make it was a smidge different from the recipe I posted the other day on FB, but I have pictures, and it is so fabulously delish that I had to share.

So here is what happened. I went to look for the maple syrup and I had NONE in my pantry! What??? I don't think I have EVER been without at least a vintage bottle of maple syrup before in my LIFE!

What to do?

I have about 6 small bottles of original British Golden Syrup in my cabinet that never seems to spoil... and I had a jar of natural honey (the stuff that's solid). So...

I sprayed my little crock-pot (see photos) with Pam.

I mixed up in a bowl:
2 eggs (I could have done it with just 1)
1 TBSP of butter
2 TBSP of Golden Syrup (my substitution for the maple syrup)
1 TBSP of the solid honey (just for sweet measure)
(I did not add any salt)

I cut the English muffin in half and put it bottom side down in the little crock, which is just the right size for one muffin.

I poured HALF of the liquid mixture (which I whisked) over the bottom muffin half and put the other half on top and poured the rest of the mixture over that.

I covered it, and stuck it in the MICROWAVE on high for about 2 minutes only.

When I saw the egg was puffing up so much that it was pushing the lid up a little, I stopped the cooking process and took it out.

It was done to PERFECTION! And it is all gone now, calling itself my breakfast.

So this recipe is good for one person, or two people who eat like a bird. You could make two of these little crocks for 2 people. I have two of them. They are fabulous for making one serving of things.

And that is that. Saturday morning breakfast from my kitchen to yours. Let me know if you make this or a version of it.

Oh, and BTW, the combo of the golden syrup and honey tasted exactly like maple syrup! For some unknown reason!

A great Saturday morning breakfast and super-quick!

I think I could turn and live with animals...
They are so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied... not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.

~ [Walt Whitman, from "Leaves of Grass, No. 32"] ~
