A couple days ago I was in the mood for a yummy breakfast. I decided to make some bacon and eggs. I used European style bacon from a local deli. I think overall, it tasted almost the same as when I make bacon and eggs with packaged bacon from the meat section of a food store. The only slightly noticeable difference was that the bacon tasted slightly more “smokey”. I must say I did enjoy the breakfast greatly.
To make this breakfast I first fried the bacon in a medium sized cast iron frying pan. I drained the fat once from the pan and then continued to fry the bacon to make it more crispy. After I was satisfied with the crispyness of the bacon I scooped the bacon out of the pan and placed it on a plate with a couple paper towels under it to absorb the excess grease. I then proceeded to fry my eggs in the same pan. I didn’t use any extra oil and no cooking spray. I fried my eggs until they were lightly brown but still had a liquid yolk. Then I removed them from the pan and placed them on my plate. I made some multigrain toast had that with my bacon and eggs. Here is an image of my breakfast.
When I am frying things I find my most useful tool to be something that many people may not find in their kitchen: goggles. I don’t wear glasses and have been told (several years ago that I have perfect vision). I want to keep it that way. That is why I think “safety first” when in the kitchen. In my opinion frying food with no eye protection is one of the most dangerous activities that takes place in the kitchen. When I was much younger before I ever had my goggles I was always afraid of frying things because many times as a child I was sprayed by grease on my arms when wearing t-shirts and cooking. Now when I am using a frying pan I always wear goggles and oven mits. I might not be the most fashionable but at least it’s safe. See below for an image of my goggles.
