Intro: How to Cook an Egg & Bacon Ring
My second Instructable! I got inspiration for this in a breakfast cookbook, but in was baked in a muffin tin in the oven. I prefer to use the frying pan so I came up with an idea to make an egg & bacon ring.
They're REALLY yummy.
Step 1: What You're Going to Need...
To make these savoury breakfast treats, you'll need a couple of ingredients & utensils:
Knife & fork
The last three, they're just for garnish. But it's up to you what you have on your egg & baco ring.
Step 2: Bacon!
BRING OUT THE BACON!
Ok, it's time to cut the bacon into strips (to line the egg ring).
Use the knife to slice it into strips, the same or larger width than the egg ring.
How many strips you need depends on what size bacon you use. I needed 2.
MAKE SURE YOUR BACON IS LONGER THAN MINE!! It will shrink in the fry pan. I had to fry a new piece, my original was too small.
Step 3: Now to Fry the Bacon.
Time to fry!
Make sure you don't cook it 'till it's too crispy. It needs to still be flexible so you can wrap it around the egg wring.
What's the point in this step? If you don't pre cook the bacon, it will be raw despite it being cooked with the egg.
Source? Personal experience. (Bleugh)
Step 4: Lining the Egg Ring.
Ok, so take the bacon out of the pan and put it on the inside of the egg ring.
It's as simple as that!
Step 5: Eggs!
Now, take the egg and crack it into the bacon-lined egg ring.
When one side looks ready to flip, get the knife and cu around the edges of the bacon, to seperate it from the egg ring. Now lift off the egg ring with the tongs.
Step 6: Serving.
Your egg & bacon ring is only four simple steps away!
Put the egg & bacon ring onto a plate. (Or should you?)
Now put some parsley, salt, pepper and any other seasoning onto the egg.
Now put a knife and fork onto the plate.
Now take a bite!
You will soon find that it's egg-cellent*. (I just couldn't resist!)
*Bacon-cellent just didn't seem to work.
