Business Meeting Breakfast, Courtesy of Hormel

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I have the opportunity to pitch ideas to different food manufacturers for the opportunity to create blog posts featuring their products.  When Hormel asked for ideas for a “party” using their products, I originally pitched them the idea of a “Brinner” (breakfast for dinner) party.  I was sent coupons for products and later offered a monetary stipend for party planning (which I have asked them not to send as I was not able to create a full-fledged party within the time constraints).  However, even taking the above into account, I was able to come up with two recipes which were INCREDIBLY tasty and showcased both Hormel bacon pieces and Hormel Natural Choice Ham lunch meat.

I offer you Hormel Bacon-Cheese mini-muffins and Hormel Ham and Cheese Quiches:


Both recipes were based around store-bought refrigerated biscuit dough (the kind in the cardboard tubes that you whack on the counter). 



The recipe? 


Egg filling for both quiches and muffins:

4 eggs, beaten, diced Hormel bacon bits or Natural Choice Ham, and feta cheese.

For the “muffins,” tear each piece of biscuit dough in half and roll into a ball; put one in each cup of a 24-cup mini-muffin pan.  Make a thumbprint in each dough ball and fill with a spoonful of the egg mixture.

For the quiches, use 8 silicone muffin tins, flatten a biscuit and shape it into the tin to make a “crust” and fill with the egg mixture.

Bake as according to the package directions for the biscuits.

These were a total hit!  My girls ate them all and begged for the recipe!

Thank you Hormel, and Foodbuzz for the opportunity.
