Tips From Easy Recipes

Here are some of our short cut time saving tips:

  • Have in your freezer, fried bacon bits. When I purchase a large packet of bacon, I break it up into smaller portion to freeze and I fry up some to freeze for later use.
  • Frying up bacon pieces takes less than 5 minutes - it is simply no bother.
  • Use kitchen scissors to speed up your work. Cut up bacon pieces roughly. There is no need to be genteel about it.
  • Measure out liquid to go into the egg mixture by using half an empty egg shell. This way you take care just the right amount of milk or water. For easy recipes with eggs, the general rule of thumb is one half egg shell of liquid to one egg. But for these muffins, be sure to add less or you'll end up with too soft muffins.
  • Always preheat the oven
  • I always use non-stick bake ware so as not to waste time greasing baking pans.
