I love bacon. Greasy, chewy, crispy, lovely bacon. Especially if it is thick cut and covered in cracked pepper! What is embarrassing is that I used to be a vegetarian, but I gave that up several years ago. I am sure the old me is rolling around in her mental grave, spitting at me, but hey, I. Love. Bacon.
The thing is, it comes in pound packages and as I am the only person who eats it, it would spoil before I could finish off a package. And freezing it in segments means that I have to mess up pans and the stove top every time I want some.
So, I got this idea. Put it on a rack in the oven and cook the whole pan, then freeze THAT. Wow. OK, it is simple and you have probably already thought of that, but I thought it was a pretty cool idea when I came up with it, so there! 🙂
Then, there is the whole donut thing. I love donuts. I know, I know, they are HORRIBLE for me, but I don’t do them often, only every few months or so. And I also love french toast, made with wonderful brioche. Light bulb. . . I split a donut in half, dipped it in a beaten egg with some cinnimon, and dropped in the pan with a couple pieces of bacon.
Hot, sweet, greasy and OMG delicious! I dipped only the cut side and dropped it on the hot griddle then covered it and lowered the heat. Hot all the way through, bacon nice and hot, and what a lovely breakfast!
OK, so I have to eat nothing but veggies for a few weeks, but hey, it is worth it!
