How awesome is it to not have any plans on Saturday morning? Very. Matt and I stayed in bed a few hours longer than usual. We watched the Tour de France and delayed our usual Saturday morning workout. I pulled myself out of bed around 11am to start throwing together a quick breakfast. I checked in our fridge and saw that we had an 8oz can of the Pillsbury seamless dough. I’m usually very anti canned anything–but actually picked up a few of these cans because I had a coupon and they were on sale one day in the grocery, so I actually brought them home for free. Not a bad deal–plus I realized they had potential to become something quick and delicious. So I’ll let my distaste for prepackaged food slide just for today.
Anyhow, I decided to create Egg & Potato Tarts. All you need is a muffin pan and you can create them too–in less than 20 minutes including cooking time. They will also impress if you decide to have a few friends over for brunch. Plus they really can be made into whatever you want them to be! I’ve made several variations from bacon, egg, & cheese to poblano, corn & egg. All equally delicious and just requires a little imagination. It’s also essentially a one pan meal–so not only is it quick to pull together, you also don’t have to waste your time doing dishes and cleaning up afterward.
