Intro: Eggy Toasty Breakfast of the Awesome
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:
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.
