English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas

IMG_8074

This past weekend we went for one last little getaway to Grandma’s house. We thought it would be a fun little trip for everyone before this school year gets really busy. Luckily, our trip also coincided with the Perseid meteor shower, which happened to also be on a new moon this year. She lives out in the country, where there’s no light pollution, so we thought it would be the perfect setting.

I’d like to tell you we witnessed the most perfect meteor shower ever, but for some reason we didn’t see one meteor. It was odd. We all took turns standing outside in the pitch dark staring up at the night sky, and we saw nothing! It was a huge disappointment, but at least we got to eat some of Grandma’s delicious homemade cookies!

After a long weekend, Monday mornings are a real bummer. This past Monday was no different. We all dragged ourselves out of bed, depressed the weekend had ended so quickly and so incredibly tired. Mornings like that don’t make my family very excited for breakfast. Everyone just wants to run out of the house and skip the most important meal of the day.

So to get everyone excited and get them to eat breakfast on those busy Monday mornings, I make one of their favorite breakfast treats. And since everyone loves a good pizza, who would say no to a breakfast pizza? These little breakfast pizzas are so simple to make, look cute and are full of the flavors your family will love.

To start these, I scramble some eggs and just spoon them on Thomas English Muffins. I just used the plain muffins here, but you can use whatever flavor you like. Whole wheat, multi-grain, double protein or the high fiber variety would work well with these breakfast pizzas.

Then I top with shredded cheese and bacon bits. You can use whatever type of cheese you like. You could also substitute sausage crumbles for the bacon bits.

After baking these in the oven for about 10 minutes, they’re ready to go. I garnished these with a few green onions before serving, but those are definitely optional.

    We had planned to stay up for the meteor shower – and then forgot all about it and went to sleep! 🙁 Love these English muffin pizzas – it reminds me of my childhood when my mom made pizzas of all kinds using English muffins as the crust!

    I didn’t even know about the meteor shower until it was too late! Such a bummer. That stinks that you didn’t see any but at least you had these breakfast pizzas (and grandma’s cookies!) 🙂

    Over 3 nights we saw 45 meteors. I am a huge Perseid fan (as is my 11 year old daughter). A few were so low and close and one that the whole family saw was huge and long like a small comet. A first for me. Why have I never made these for my family?? We love breakfast, English Muffins and Pizza! These are happening real soon! TY

    What a bummer that you weren’t able to see the meteor shower! But it sounds as though you had a lovely “last hurrah” of summer at your grandma’s. We must be on the same wavelength because I just made something very similar to these perfect breakfast pizzas, which I’ll be posting soon.

    After cookies and meteor showers at grandma’s house, Monday had better do something to compete. What a fun breakfast idea!

    Pizza! I’m for serious in love with pizza, in all forms. I eat it as much and as often as I can. Pizza for breakfast? On an English muffin? Yes, please!
