Eggy Toasty Breakfast of the Awesome




About: You really want to know more about me? Wow. If you really do, just ask me the questions directly.

I ate these for almost every meal for a while. They are as the name says, awesome.

Step 1: Get It All Out in the Open

You are going to need:
Frying pan

Step 2: Set It Up

Put your pan on your stove. Simultaneously add the eggs to the pan. Then add the bacon in whatever pattern you see fit. I try to wrap it around the yolks.

Step 3: Heat Things Up

Turn on your stove. I always go with a setting of about 4. This means it will cook slowly which may not be your style. I prefer it because anything over about 6 will burn it before it's done and anything more than about 4 will leave a thin crunchy/chewy layer on the bottom of the eggs. I like my eggs uniformly soft.
Timing will also affect your yolks. If you like runny yolks pull it off the stove as soon as the bacon is done. If you like 'em solid, wait a couple minutes longer. Don't leave them on there too long or you will end up with yolks that are almost like damp powder in consistency.
When it looks like the second picture you are all set. Turn off the stove and run to your toaster.

Step 4: Toast: the Single Most Awesome Invention Since Sliced Bread

Now to make *dramatic pause* The Toast.
In case you can't tell, I really dig toast so I consider it a very important part of a meal. You should know how to make toast but just in case you don't:
1. pull out two slices of bread.
2. place one in each slot in the toaster.
3. depress the lowering mechanism. (as in push it down physically not as in tell it how it has failed in life)
4. Wait patiently.
5. Wait less patiently.
6. Hurl imprecations and threats at your toaster until it gives you the toast you so rightfully demand. (optional)

Step 5: Plate It

Place the toast on your plate. Cut the eggs and bacon in half and place a half on each piece of toast. If you are serving this to someone else place a small leafy twig on their plate to make it seem gourmet. Or don't.

It ain't pretty but damned if it isn't tasty. The food is now ready to be devoured. Devour it.

Step 6: Last Notes

Not all stoves are made equal. Find your stoves ideal temperature.
I am not responsible if you are hurt, maimed, killed, or financially ruined in the making of this awesome meal. Good luck.

    Honey, your bacon is practically raw. Please be could get really sick eating pork that isn't cooked all the way.

    I'd add the bacon first and let it cook, the bacon pictured is almost raw. most of the time that won't be a problem, but trichinosis is not your friend. eggs take almost no time to cook, bacon takes longer. also, if you let the bacon cook a bit first, the bacon grease in the pan will make the egg taste even better.

    According to Alton Brown: "The food police will not come to your house if the bacon' underdone"
    Personally, crispy bacon is overated

    seconded. I'd bake the bacon, then cook the eggs in 1/2 of the grease. i'd grill the bread in the second half of the grease, mixed with a small knob of butter. Gives the toast a crisp, flavorful shell, rather than the blandness that'll come out of a toaster. melt a bit of cheddar over the finished product at the near end and wow.


    in response to both of your comments: as far as the bacon being done is concerned: it is. I only had one time when the end result was not fully cooked. Maybe its just a difference in stoves. And when you cook them together you do get the bacon taste in the eggs. The eggs are surrounded by it; I don't see how it would be possible for them to not get the taste. As for cooking the bread in the bacon grease: I actually tried that and had a couple problems. The bread absorbed the grease and became mushy. That didn't work. And by the time I had just made the bread the eggs n' bacy were cooled below optimum serving temperature.

    Following that tutorial, you need 20 minutes on low heat to cook the bacon. Fried eggs will be badly burned if cooked for 20 minutes, even on low heat.

    very good!!! i put the bacon in a rectangle to keep the grease in the middle(brown is the grease) then i put the eggs and cheese in the middle. burnd the crap out of my gut when some grease splashed though WORTH IT
