Beach Mix... delicious breakfast fast!

**Update** pics now added :)

This is a great recipe for those who like a bacon and eggs breakfast, but who don't have a lot of time. Make it on the weekend and then enjoy it for the week!

Beach Mix:

• 2 pkg english muffins
• 1 dozen hard boiled eggs
• 1 - 8 oz bag shredded cheddar cheese
• 1 lb. cooked bacon crumbled [ you can also use 1 lb. of breakfast sausage... very tasty]
• enough mayo to hold the ingredients together... usually a couple heaping tablespoons do the trick

Put eggs in pan and add water just until covered. Add kosher salt.

Bring to a boil, then boil 10 minutes. Drain water and let cold water run over eggs in pan for a few minutes and add ice. Let stand 10-15 mins.

As you are waiting on the eggs, cut your bacon into 1" slices.

There are many different ways to prepare bacon... Because this recipe calls for a pound of bacon, I used the griddle since it has more space than any of my skillets.

As you can see, I set the temperature to 400 degrees. I also used tongs since bacon likes to pop... keeps my little fingers from getting really hot grease on them :)

When the bacon pieces are finished, place them on a plate with napkins or paper towels to drain off the excess grease.

Peel eggs and dice them into a large bowl.

Add cheese and bacon. Stir in enough mayo to hold the ingredients together.

The consistency should look something like this...

Place a scoop of the mix [1/4 cup] on top of an english muffin.

Broil in oven until hot and golden [ about 7-10 mins]

You can store the unused mix for about 3-5 days.
