We’ve enjoyed the rain the last few days here in central Oregon. All I can think about now is how gorgeous my flower pots are going to be! Fall is in the air, and it feels a little earlier than usual. But I’ll take it. I do love fall.

For an easy way to host, breakfast boards are great. Of course you can make my Epic Grilled Breakfast Charcuterie Board (that feeds 10-12), or one on a smaller level like I’m sharing today.

Ingredients for English Muffin Breakfast Board

  • English muffins (use your favorite brand), and then make buttery eggs!
  • Bacon, cheese, jams (raspberry and orange marmalade are my faves).
  • Then add seasonal fruit like berries and figs.
  • Avocados are the best addition to the BEST egg muffin!

Zero plans for the weekend

Are you good with having a weekend with zero plans? You know, where you have no place to be, with no commitments, and you can go with the flow? This is rare for us, but it’s necessary once in a while.

It’s so good to recharge, and just live in the moment.

It’s okay to just go on walks or hikes, smell the air, take it all in. Why do we have to give ourselves permission to do this?

Good to do nothing

For us, living over here in central Oregon, we’ve had many experiences like this. We don’t host every single day or even on the weekends, although we do go with the flow with hospitality. That means sometimes we host when we don’t think we are going to.

Last-minute opportunities arise, and some of those are my favorites.

But it’s also good to do nothing sometimes.

It makes me think about when our family went kayaking on Hosmer Lake, and we brought a picnic for dinner. We had no agenda, except to get on the lake at sunset.

For hours, we just hung out and talked and took it all in.

So much beauty.

Family breakfast time

Family breakfast time is also very special in our home. This is a great way to put the food on the table. It only takes a couple extra minutes to arrange it and make it pretty.

It’s not always necessary.

But being together is.

Happy weekend, Friends!

English Muffin Breakfast Board

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time45 mins
Course: Breakfast
Keyword: breakfast board, brunch, english muffin board
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 8-10 English muffins cut in half
  • 4 Tbsp butter plus more if needed
  • 10 eggs
  • 10-12 oz bacon thin cut
  • 1/3 c sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 c raspberry jam
  • 1/3 c orange marmalade
  • 10 strawberries halved
  • 12 Black and Tiger Figs halved
  • 1/8 c olive oil
  • 1 ripe avocado cut into 6 strips
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Basil to garnish

Instructions

  • To cook your bacon, preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lay your strips flat on the sheet. Cook in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the bacon has reached desired crispiness. When bacon is done cooking, place on paper towels to absorb any grease, cut in half, and set aside. You may need to do this twice to cook all of the bacon.
  • In a medium skillet, heat 1/8 cup of olive oil over low heat. Then, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs with 3/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. When the yolks and whites are well combined, pour them into the pan. Stir semi-frequently and allow eggs to cook low and slow. When the eggs have just about reached your desired doneness (I prefer soft and undercooked), remove the pan from the heat. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top and set aside.
  • On a large baking sheet, lay out each English muffin half face up, then coat each piece with butter. Under a broiler, set to low, toast the bread for 2 to 3 minutes. Keep a close eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn (unless you prefer it a bit more toasted like I do).
  • To assemble your board, place your eggs in a dish in the center, followed by the two small bowls of jam. Arrange strawberries, eggs, bacon, avocado slices, and English muffins around the board. Garnish with basil if desired, then serve immediately and enjoy!
