Bacon & Eggs

BreakfastPlace bacon slices in a large skillet.  Set the skillet on the stove and turn burner to medium heat.  After a few minutes, use tongs or a fork to turn bacon over.  Amount of time required to cook bacon will depend on a few variables:

  • how hot is the pan?  (hotter cooks quicker, except that too hot = burnt food)
  • how thick is the bacon? (thicker bacon takes longer to cook)
  • how floppy/crispy do you like your bacon?

While bacon cooks, break one egg into a bowl and beat well.  Set the table.  Clean the kitchen.  Wash a load of laundry… (I like my bacon thick-sliced and well-done)

When bacon is done cooking, remove from pan and set on a paper towel to allow grease to drain from bacon.  Throw a handful of chopped peppers** into the hot bacon fat in the pan.  Stir.  Pour beaten egg over peppers and stir until egg is cooked.

Serve bacon and eggs with fruit juice.


**When  red-, yellow-, orange-, and green peppers are on sale, I stock up. Clean, chop, and place in a ziplock bag in the freezer.
