What was the last thing you baked? Was it for a particular occasion, or just for enjoying around the house?

Quoting bekalynne440:

There's no real recipe. I used 2 muffin pans, put bacon in the bottom of each cup then added in uncooked scrambled eggs. I cooked that at 375 for 12 minutes. When its done put it on an English muffin (toasted if you prefer) with some cheese.

ETA: You can also use ham instead of bacon. To freeze them just wrap them individually in Saran Wrap.


Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

Can you share your recipe? That sounds like something that would be really popular around my house...



Quoting bekalynne440:

This morning I made egg McMuffins in the oven.  I'm not sure if that counts, lol.  We're trying to make our own "convenience" foods rather than buying overpriced, processed crap, so I made up 2 dozen.  We had some for breakfast and the rest are in the freezer.

I need to bake some more bread.  I used to bake some regularly, but have gotten away from it.








I might have to do this myself!

 hahahaha.....Pizza rolls.  My son LOVES pizza rolls so we indulged him.  I had never bought those things until he came to live with us.  haha.  Both the kids really enjoyed them. 

My girls love those things! It is a very rare treat if I buy them!

They are soooo easy! ( and delicious!)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1-1/2 pounds dark chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour, alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  • Shape into 1-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.
  • In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls in coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. If desired, remelt remaining candy coating and drizzle over candies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.

Cookies. Because I like cookies.  There was no reason for it.
