Baked Tomato and Bacon English Muffins (Easy Breakfast Idea)
Want a yummy breakfast idea to try?
Wake up to perfectly baked English muffins topped with melted cheese, bacon and seasoned tomato, for a delicious and easy to make meal. This is such a fun idea to make for a crowd, as it’s simple and most everyone will love it!
Hip2Save Team Favorite!
In fact, last week at our Hip2Save team retreat, our wonderful friend Megan made a bunch of these English muffins for breakfast, and we ALL loved them so much! This is a yummy breakfast her mom and grandma used to make for her growing up, and she was nice enough to share the idea with us.
It all starts with BACON!
I love that these are really more of an easy idea, and not so much an actual in-depth recipe. The basic idea is to slightly toast an English muffin, top it with cooked bacon, cheese, and then a seasoned slice of tomato. Once these are all baked, the flavor and melted texture are so irresistible.
Megan’s mom actually told me the key to great flavor is to use garlic salt to season the thinly sliced tomato before baking. She recommends using this Lawry’s garlic salt with parsley.

These are seriously DELISH!
We devoured our simple yet tasty tomato bacon English muffins in no time! I love the crispy bacon with the melted cheese combo. In fact, I was thinking these would make a perfect brunch type food for maybe Easter, or any special occasion when feeding a crowd. Just have them all prepped and throw in the oven before serving. Yum!
Serve up some cheesy eggs on the side, and this is such a tasty satisfying idea. I appreciate simple entertaining ideas like this so much! I had a leftover muffin the next day, and it was just as delish. 🙂
Also on a personal note: THANK YOU to Megan for sharing this bacon & tomato English muffin idea with us, and for cooking some other outstanding meals for our entire team last week! That task can be intimidating, and she did it like a pro!
