Recipe: Egg Mini Pie for Breakfast


This post contains affiliate links. 

Breakfast pies are such a fun way to make and serve breakfast. Everyone gets to have a small pan, cover it with dough for the crust, fill it with their favorite ingredients, some cheese, and an egg. The baked pie will smell oh-so good and it will be so cute to sit at the table with your very own breakfast. I seriously felt like I was at Panera having my breakfast or at some fancy hotel. Yet, I was at my own home in my pjs with my kids having mini pies. 

So how is it that we got into making mini pies? 

For Christmas, my daughter had requested a Lalaloopsy Baking Oven to bake mini foods just like the ones she's seen on the YouTube channel. Have you seen the Lalaloopsy girls youtube channel? It's very entertaining. The channel teaches you step-by-step how to make recipes like chocolate chip cookies, strawberry cakes, and so much more!  Everything is made using this tiny appliance and tiny baking pans. 

The truth is that the oven looks really cute and it really does bake. I just don't have the extra space for it, so we decided to get her mini pie pans instead where we can make tiny food. :-) okay, maybe not as small as Lalaloopsy's foods, but it's small enough that can make individual servings. Win-win for everyone. 

Baking and serving dishes made in individual pans has created a lot interest in the children to want to bake and to come up with their own inventions. Sometimes they copy each other, other times they pick what they like from the other and add a different ingredient to make it their own. 

To start off, we got the pans covered with store bought pastry dough. The kids cut around it using a butter knife and put it on the pan, then press it with their fingers. I was like "yay! they are working on their fine motor skills here!" (everything is a teaching moment!) 



store bought Pastry Dough or make your own
eggs (1 per mini pie)
veggies of choice - optional  (sauteed spinach, tomato, onion, etc)
meat (optional)
shredded cheese
salt and pepper


Preheat oven at 400 degrees.
Roll out the dough, cut about 1/2 inch larger than the size of the mini pie pan.
Set the dough in the pan, then begin to fill it with ingredients of choice.
Top it off with shredded cheese and crack an egg over it and salt and pepper.
Bake it for about 18 minutes.

Baking time really depends on the oven, though. I would recommend watching it closely after the 12 minute mark to calculate exactly how long it needs baking.

Oh and you might need to make two pies for yourself. I won't tell anyone. Promise.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
