Monica's favorite non-stick skillet for cooking eggs
Although these are pricey, they are the best! They have a safe Green-Tek non-stick finish and are dishwasher and oven safe. This is by the far the most durable and best non-stick skillet I've ever owned. (also available in additional sizes)
These make it easy to form a perfectly round eggs to stack on corn cakes or English muffins.

In a previous post, I shared my recipe for Corn Cake Toppers and showed how to serve them on top of chili and soup. Turns out that these pancake-style cornbread cakes also make a great base for layering breakfast foods. Think of eggs benedict with canadian bacon and egg on top of an english muffin, and all of the variations on that theme. The same endless combinations can be layered on top of a corn cake. And, let me tell you, it is some kinda wonderful!

I'm going to show the most basic corn cake breakfast stack in this post and then share some ideas of ways to expand on this theme. I just kind of happened onto this breakfast combo when I was left with some corn cakes in the fridge after topping chili with them the night before. Now I'm torn about which way I like them best--as a topper or a bottom-er. Hmmm. There must be a better word for that. Let me know if you think of one.

These breakfast stacks have 3 layers of ingredients: a fried egg, crispy bacon, and a corn cake. That's it. Here's how to make and assemble them.

 

Step-by-step photos for making
Bacon & Egg Corn Cake Breakfast Stacks.

 

Step 1. Make a batch of corn cakes. You'll find my step-by-step photos here:

Step 2. Cook some bacon. I like to bake mine in the oven and freeze the cooked bacon. It can be reheated in seconds in the microwave. Here's a link to my tutorial on baking bacon.

Step 3. Fry an egg, however you like it. I use a silicone egg rings. They work great for making the egg the perfect shape and size to top a corn cake or English muffin.

Step 4. Put a warm corn cake on a plate.

That's it. Easy, huh?

VARIATIONS TO TRY. You can mix it up with different layer combinations and toppings. There are so many possibilities. Here are a few.

  • Egg layer- fried, poached, scrambled, or a sliced boiled egg
  • Meat layer - bacon, ham, Canadian bacon, sausage patty, crab cake, chorizo
  • Veggie layer - spinach, avocado, tomato, roasted peppers, sauteed mushrooms or onions, sprouts, fresh basil leaves, hash browns
  • Sauce on top - salsa, tabasco, hollandaise, guacamole, gravy, cheese 

MAKE IT CHEESY. Try adding cheese on top of the meat layer and melting it under the broiler before adding the egg (so the egg doesn't overcook).
