Christmas party season has officially begun for us. Starting with last night, we attended Bruce’s work Christmas dinner and dance.
The meal was pretty good. The starter was a spinach salad, the dressing was a little too sweet for my liking. For the main I had the chicken (other options were beef and surf and turf) the chicken was wrapped in bacon and stuffed with spinach, feta, and sun dried tomato. The green beans were definitely not fresh, either frozen or canned but they weren’t good. Dessert was chocolate bread pudding which had dairy in it so I had wine for dessert instead. haha After dinner we danced and chatted with many of Bruce’s co-workers. It was a great time. We left around midnight to take a cab to party #2 of the evening. Isn’t that what Christmas is all about? Multiple parties in one night? Party number #2 was for my aunts 50th birthday so my family was there. Family parties are the best!
So I woke up this morning with an unbelievable headache and I haven’t left the couch all day. I had a little too much fun I think. Late nights and too much wine have taken there toll on me. Tonight will be a quiet night! I got up this morning and made bacon and egg cups, a full belly is always the solution to a hangover for me. Make these the next time you’ve had a little too much Christmas cheer the night before or they would be great for a Christmas brunch.
Bacon and Egg Cups
- 2 eggs for every person
- 4 slices of bacon for every person
- can of Pillsbury biscuits (10 small biscuits per can)
- cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper
I made 4 cups for myself and Bruce and just baked up the rest of the biscuits. Start off by partially cooking the bacon a few minutes on each side and drain on paper towels. Meanwhile spray each muffin tin with non-stick spray. Place one biscuit in a muffin tin. This will work better with jumbo muffin tins but I only have small but it still worked out. Place a small piece of cheddar cheese on top of it.
Crisscross 2 pieces of bacon over every biscuit as pictured below then crack an egg on top of it and season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until egg is cooked. The finished product is below! If hung-over serve with a green monster smoothie (blueberries, strawberries, banana, pumpkin, spinach, greek yogurt, and soy milk) and proceed to the couch. Stay there the rest of the day and relax, maybe think about decorating your Christmas tree and doing some online Christmas shopping. You’ll be feeling better in no time!
