Country Ham Egg Muffin

I’ve made my share of egg sandwiches. And they were all good, but there was just a little something missing from them. Something was needed to put them over-the-top. When I ran across the recipe for these country ham egg muffin sandwiches in John Currence’s Big Bad Breakfast I quickly put the items I needed to make them onto my grocery list. They turned out to be my favorite egg sandwiches of all time. And nothing is missing from them. I’ve made them three times this week already (is that wrong?).

Country Ham Egg Muffin

Velveety American cheese, hot sauce, fried ham, a little thyme and salt and pepper, mayonnaise, and a perfect egg. Each bite was perfect. And don’t omit the mayonnaise. At first I wasn’t sure about mayonnaise on an egg sandwich. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I associate mayonnaise with a big ole meaty lunch sandwich and not breakfast. Well, mayonnaise is really great on these country ham egg muffins, so don’t leave it off!

Also try my cowboy breakfast sandwiches.

Fiery Catalina Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

Despite how simple the sauce on these fiery Catalina wings was to make, it absolutely blew us away! We loved it! A tad of sweetness, a tad bit of tanginess, and a good bit of heat. Of course, you can adjust the heat to your liking, which is why making your own chicken wing sauce is so much more fun than using a sauce out of a bottle.

I cook a lot of wings using lots of different sauces, but there’s no doubt that fiery Catalina wings will be common in our house. Everything we need to make them is on-hand, so I can throw together the sauce in no time with no hassle. Perfect.

Also try my Angry chicken wings. They have some kick!

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.

Spicy Honey Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

A little sweet. A little heat. Those are the keys to a great wing sauce. These spicy honey wings have the perfect combination of both. Even with my Fire-Eater rub and a healthy dose of hot sauce, they’re plenty sweet. Perfect for dipping in a bowl of cold Ranch or blue cheese dressing.

Spicy Honey Wings

I find myself sitting here and just staring at the picture of the spicy honey wings. Man, they sure were pretty, and they sure were delicious. I could easily make another batch for lunch today. I think I will. All of the ingredients to make the rub and sauce are pantry staples, and I always keep plenty of fresh wings around because you never know when you might want a few wings.

If you like your wings with a little heat and a little sweet, also try my Detroit Hot Honey wings.
