Breakfast - Eggs and Bacon

it's no secret. breakfast is my favorite meal. i could eat breakfast food for every meal. Unfortunately, it's not so good for you. but one can wish it was.

phillip and i had the day off, so i decided to make us breakfast. i looked in the fridge and we had the following: eggs, bacon, cheese, bagels, and cream cheese. oh, and coffee. and don't forget tea. phillip likes tea; i like coffee.

How To Make Scrambled Eggs and Bacon

here's what you need:
  • bacon. we like the maple flavored kind.
  • eggs
  • cheese of your choice. the only thing i had was american, but you can use whatever you'd like.
  • bagels
  • cream cheese
  • coffee or tea or both
  • frying pan
  • mixing bowl

    what you need to do:
    grab a frying pan and place it on the stove. turn on the heat, or if you're luckier than i am, the gas. get it hot. then lay as many bacon strips as needed in the pan. i don't recommend eating bacon every day, but once in a while is ok. fry it to your liking. we like it really crispy, so all the fat is fried off.

    when you've finished frying the bacon, you should probably dispose of the bacon grease. if you are frying eggs, i guess you could use the grease like my mom used to. actually, don't. memories of that kind of turn my stomach. anyway, dispose of the grease and wash out the frying pan. or just get a new one if you want to. make sure it's non-stick.

    if you're making coffee, make sure you start it now so it's ready when the eggs are done. put a pot of water on for tea. or, if you're like us, put a mug of water in the microwave it :)


    grab as many eggs as needed as well as the cheese. more people, more eggs and cheese.


    crack the eggs into the bowl. cut up the cheese and put it in the bowl as well. whisk together the eggs and cheese. you can add salt and pepper to taste if you wish.



    when the eggs are whisked together, pour the eggs and cheese into the heated nonstick frying pan. make sure that the heat isn't too high or you'll burn the eggs.




    as the eggs heat, gently fold the eggs over on themselves, making sure to work from the outside in. eggs don't take very long to cook, so make sure you don't leave the stove for any length of time. if you do, you'll have burnt, dried out eggs. and no one wants that!


    after the eggs have cooked, remove them from stove and put aside. place a bagel in the toaster. when it pops up, spread cream cheese on it. repeat for as many people you are cooking for. of course, if you don't want a bagel, you can skip it.


    place the eggs, bacon, and bagel on a plate and serve it up. pour the coffee or tea and serve it as well. doesn't that look great? dig in!

    Once in a while we'll get the crazy expensive bacon from that food shop on Charles Street - it's like $8 a pound and it's worth every penny. It smells like a smokehouse in your kitchen when you're frying it. We clarify the leftover grease from that bacon and use it to add extra flavor to chicken - just a little in the pan if you're cooking chicken breasts, or brush a bit over a roasting chicken before you put in the oven.
