I love Fall for many reasons, one being Notre Dame football. We've been anxious for Charley to wear her Notre Dame onsie from Uncle Benny and Auntie X ever since they gave it to her when she was born, and this past Saturday was finally the day. The Irish played bright and early at 9 a.m. so I had to rethink my typical gameday snacks. I don't think anyone wanted to chow down on buffalo chicken dip and meatballs when the sun was barely up. Instead, I decided on breakfast sandwiches and B.J. made his spicy bloody mary's. I followed this recipe for the sandwiches and they were delicious. I made a couple slight changes though-I used turkey bacon instead of ham, american cheese instead of cheddar, white english muffins instead of wheat (B.J. went to the store;)), and a regular muffin pan instead of a jumbo one. This is a great breakfast to prepare when you're having company because so much can be prepped and assembled before they would arrive. Then you would just pop them into the oven when it was time to eat. Make extra because they freeze and heat up very well!
I totally forgot to snap a photo of them when they came out of the oven. I guess I was too hungry! Just imagine a golden brown english muffin, melted cheese, warm egg, crispy bacon...mmmmm....all washed down with a spicy bloody mary. I would say it was the perfect football Saturday!
