Smile Breakfast This Morning

Could be for dinner since I like a traditional breakfast any time of the day But this is what I'm doing right now.

I'm baking an entire package of bacon (12 oz.) on a slotted broiler pan (to catch the grease). 400F for 10-15 minutes or so. This is my preferred method of cooking bacon. It comes out perfectly flat (don't you hate fighting with bacon in a frying pan when it's trying it's darndest to curl up?) and nicely crisped. And the drippings are easy to pour out of the broiler pan to your empty coffee-can or whatever you use to store/dispose of the grease in. Drain the bacon on brown paper or paper towels.

[No, I'm not going to eat all that bacon at once (but I do love bacon!). I'm going to make some lentil soup either this afternoon or tomorrow and I'll set aside about 4-5 strips to add to that. I'm sure I'll munch on the remaining bacon throughout the afternoon!]

Anyway, a couple tablespoonfuls of the bacon grease will go into my trusty skillet. I've diced a small white potato with 1/4 small onion and tossed in a little pepper. Home fries!

Remove the home fries to a plate; add a little more bacon grease to the skillet as needed, then it's two eggs over-easy.
So, home fries, 2 eggs and 4 strips of bacon - that's breakfast this morning Not exactly healthy with all the bacon grease but I don't eat like this very often.

I made a couple strips of turkey bacon
2 eggs scrambled with some melted cheese
And then I made that into a sandwich by placing it
between 2 pieces of tomato basil bread.

7.00 am = Porridge, made with proper oats, not rolled oats, a little milk and sprinkled with salt. Earl Grey tea.
Keeps me going until lunch-time.

A huge cup of earl grey, and a hefty slice of pandoro... ubiquitous Italian Christmas cake which start being sold around October, along with another version panettone. Yes I must confess it is store bought, their raising procedure is very delicate and complicated, it is very difficult to produce them at home.


<<< this is pandoro!

Didn't know you skip breakfast, young man!

I had a cup of Ovaltine (malt chocolate drink) and a few pieces of Greek toasted bread.
