My Yummy Breakfast & A Kitchen Tip

So I decided to use what I had in my pantry and make a version of HG's McGriddle that I posted this morning. Now I do not know the calories (which I know defeats the purpose of the original recipe)..but all I know is that I was hungry from staring at the picture on my blog all day..lol

So I used....

I love these easy packs! Add 1 cup of water and poof...pancake mix!

1 egg
1 slice Tillimook Cheddar
2 Turkey Sausage links cut down the middle

...and bam, breakfast!



*Kitchen Tip*

A while back I had heard that the expiration date on eggs can actually be extended for 2 weeks (or more). This date is just for grocery stocking and when they get pulled off the shelves and sent back to the "farm", the eggs are actually checked and repackaged with a new expiration date. Hmmm do not know if this is true, but decided to do some research to find out HOW you know your eggs have gone bad..this is what I found.


Put your egg into a glass of water if the egg floats it is bad. Floating means that air has penetrated the shell and you do not want to eat that yolk! The egg in my picture has an "expiration" date of Feb 14th...today is the 25th. My egg sinks, it is still good and I used it for the above recipe and it was yummy! 

"If the egg sinks to the bottom, but stands on its point, it's still good but needs to be used soon. Since egg shells are porous, overtime the liquid in the egg evaporates and is replaced by outside air. This results in more buoyant eggs."

Do you have any egg or kitchen tips? I would love to hear it!

Good idea! I bet these were yummy. I also gotta tell you, I've minimized your blog window so I could listen to good ol' Louis A while I'm blog surfing. :) Thanks.

I use the same method when testing out my eggs! It's a great tip! (But I never knew that eggs had another two weeks or so after the date. Good to know!)

And now I want breakfast for a mid afternoon snack. That looks so good. I will try to remember the tip for checking eggs. Right now, with the 18 and 21 yo's eggs don't last more than a day around here.
