Mimi's bacon breakfast muffins

1 lb bacon, chopped and cooked crispy
1 cup chopped tomatoes, seeded and drained
1/2 cup mayo
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Worcestershire sauce to taste 
1 package of English muffins

Chop and cook bacon until crispy. Drain and set aside to cool. Chop, seed, and drain tomatoes. Mix those two with mayo, cheese, Worcestershire and pepper. I like a lot of Worcestershire. 

I typically make up the mixture a day in advance, but you can certainly make the morning of. 

Preheat oven to 350. Split the english muffins in half and top each with about 1/4 cup of the mixture to start. If you have extra, go back and fill in.

Bake for 20 minutes and serve. For a super easy company breakfast, I serve with fruit salad. 

My good friend Mimi is a great cook and a recipe goldmine. She's also got a huge and generous heart, and we jokingly refer to her house as the home for wayward girls, because if something's wrong for you, she'll take you in and feed you like royalty. These muffins were our go-to girls weekend muffins after a night of debauchery at the bars in Federal Hill. They remind me of laughter and friendship and bonding over meals. 

These days my nights of drinking to excess are few and far between, but these muffins are still my go to when I'm hosting a bunch of people for breakfast or brunch. The mixture can be made a day ahead, so they're super easy to get out in a timely manner without taking too much time away from your guests. I prefer to have time to talk and linger over coffee on days like Christmas instead of being in the kitchen doing and missing out on time with my people.

If it has bacon...
Songs can be sung about it. 
Movies can be made. 

What's your go-to quick breakfast for company?


  1. These look DELISH! And I love that you can prepare them ahead of time for an easy quick breakfast :)

  2. Those look so good! Any time you have bacon I am coming for breakfast! ;) I usually just do bacon and eggs, or pancakes. This is much easier.

  3. Love Mimi!! I have had this at your house, but never made them.
    I will have to give it a try.
    Stay safe out there today, everyone!
    Love, Your Momma

  4. You had me at Bacon!!! This sounds so good girl! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  5. My favorites! I use probably half that amount of mayo, but I have yet to ever serve these and not have people go bananas over them. This is the kind of recipe kingdoms go to war to protect.

  6. Hooray for Meem's muffins! Those sound so good right now. I also like lots of Worcestershire sauce. Mmmmm

  7. Sounds like the perfect hangover food or just for breakfast/brunch in general!

  8. That looks SO stinking TASTY!!!!!

    And I know everyone in the house will just LOVE it!

    Thanks for sharing.

  9. sounds delicious, thank you for sharing...I now have a ridiculous hankering for bacon. haha

  10. This looks delicious!! So "fancy" but seems simple enough!

  11. Oh these looks good. The "light" english muffins are my new obsession since switching to weight watchers... pretty sure these are going to happen this weekend. Yum.

  12. These sound absolutely divine. I might have to try them sometime. Maybe with a side of hash browns?

  13. Now THAT'S what I call a good breakfast!! These look delicious and English muffins are my favorite!

  14. wow - these look amazingly easy and delicious. i'm not a huge fan of meat but bacon.. bacon is different. and so yummy. yum.

  15. OMG I'm drooling!! Love this recipe!!

  16. Bacon?? Say no more, I am in! These look delicious!!!

  17. Anything with bacon and I'm sold! I love to make overnight french toast if we are having people over for breakfast/brunch. I like that I can make it the night before and then just pop it in the oven in the morning. Simple is good.

  18. Oooh these look so good! I'm usually standing over the stove making pancakes or something when I have breakfast guests, so I could definitely use a make the night before meal!

  19. I need to store this in my back pocket because this past Christmas, I made waffles, eggs, and bacon while visiting family (7 adults, 2 kids). It took sooooooo long. It was 10am before we sat down. No one minded but I hated making people wait. THIS is much better. Thanks, Steph!

  20. Today's haiku is my fave! I love that you have a friend like this that takes you all in :)

  21. Minus the bacon I'm in. I acutally have everything - so going to try this in the morning! THANKS!
