Ingredients
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 1 package microwave cornbread
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (recommended: Tabasco)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Chives, chopped, for garnish
Directions

Fill a 1-quart microwave safe bowl 1/2 full with water. Crack the eggs into it and poke a hole in the yolks with a skewer or toothpick. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until the whites are set and the yolks are still soft. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Put 2 layers of paper towels onto a microwave safe plate and place the bacon strips on top. Microwave on high power for about 3 minutes, or until crisp. Set aside.

Mix the microwave cornbread according to package directions. Cook 2 English muffin size portions using a microwave safe cup according to package directions. Remove from the cup and put onto plates.

Tear the cheese into pieces and put them into a small microwave safe bowl. Add the milk, hot sauce, and mustard and season with salt and pepper. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stirring half way through, or until the cheese is melted and smooth.

To assemble, top each cornbread muffin with 2 slices of bacon. Put a poached egg on top of each and cover each with half the cheese sauce. Garnish with chives and serve.
