Baked Tomato and Bacon English Muffins (Easy Breakfast Idea)

Baked Tomato Bacon English Muffins

yield: 12 SERVINGS

prep time: 25 MINUTES

cook time: 15 MINUTES

total time: 40 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 6 English muffins
  • 12 slices of bacon, cooked
  • 12 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 12 thin tomato slices
  • garlic salt

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Open English muffins on a sheet pan, and place them face up. Toast for 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven.

2

Place one piece of cooked bacon on each English muffin half. Break apart bacon in smaller pieces so it covers the entire circle.

3

Place one slice of cheddar cheese on top of the bacon, and break apart if there's a super large area to fill.

4

Place a thin slice of tomato on top of each. Season with garlic salt. Don't measure, just sprinkle on to taste.

5

Finally place back in the oven to melt cheese and tomato, about 5-10 minutes. I like my tomato a little more done, so I'd go closer to 10 minutes, but this is to preference. Remove from oven and serve.

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!

    Love this idea! Thanks…gonna’ make it right now 🙂

    Looks soooo good!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Enjoy them ❤️

    When making large amounts of bacon, I get the $1 foil pans from the store and bake a whole package of bacon at once in the oven. No standing over a hot stove, but my favorite part is the cleanup. I crumple the pan up (with the bacon grease still in it) and toss it. Just a tip!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good idea, and thanks for sharing the tip!

  3. babymair

    How about we leave pigs alone and stop eating them?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You can definitely omit or change to turkey bacon?

    • Jamie

      Someone’s got to eat them. Doesn’t have to be you I suppose

    • Paulina

      How about if you don’t like what you read you just keep scrolling? Just a thought.

    • Jennifer

      I recently made a Facon(fake bacon) recipe that uses rice paper to create a bacon-like experience that you could try. It’s nice to make a bunch and keep on hand for recipes like this one. I love the simplicity of this recipe, thanks Lina!

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        oh yay! You’re very welcome- and it tastes so fancy HA!

    • shop4mybabies
