Ever “Baked” Bacon & Eggs??

Baked Eggs and Bacon

Baked Eggs and Bacon

This weekend try something new for breakfast. Instead of frying up a few eggs in an ordinary, pan get adventurous. I’ll tell you how to make this scrumptious treat below. And I’ll add the disclaimer – it’s SUPER EASY. Here what you need. Use as much of the following as you’d like:

  • Uncooked bacon
  • Eggs
  • Asparagus
  • Mushrooms
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Cut jalapenos with the seeds removed
  • Olive oil
  • Coarse salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Non-stick foil for easy clean up

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Place the strips of bacon on a foil lined sheet pan and place in oven. Mine were thick, large pieces so they took a little longer to cook, about 12 minutes. But keep a real close eye those strips. They go from uncooked to cooked pretty fast. Once the bacon is the way you like it, remove it from the oven. Drain the grease from the pan (leave a coating for flavor). Add the veggies onto the same pan and toss them around to coat them with the oil. If you removed most of the oil you’ll need to add a little olive oil. Lightly salt and pepper and put the veggies in the oven. Keep a close eye on them. I cooked mine for about 5 minutes but essentially you want them not quite cooked.  When they are still a bit crispy remove the pan and crack the eggs over the vegetables and then they go back in the oven.

Here are the eggs about 2 minutes in

Here are the eggs about 3 minutes in

I cooked the eggs for about 4-5 minutes. It depends how you like them.  I like the whites cooked and the yolks runny.  When the eggs are done remove the pan from the oven and add the bacon to the whole lot of it. Plate and serve!

Yum!!!

Yum!!!

I have to say, baked eggs have a very different, luscious texture vs when you cook them in an “ordinary” pan.  And the bacon for some odd reason is not greasy. I hope you’ll try it and if you do let me know what you think!

Nutribullet V8 Juice

I’ve juiced quite a bit but what a hassle. You clean, cut and the push your fruits and veggies through a hole that’s just barely big enough. Apples, carrots, spinach and anything else you discover in the back of your refrigerator. Then, out the back of your juicer shoots a huge spray of residual material, piling like wet sawdust. Then you slurp down the juice while starting the the cleaning process. Dismantle, rinse and then where to put everything…where to put it???

Then I discovered the NutriBullet. They’ve not asked me to write this – it’s just that I absolutely LOVE mine! First, you drink the entire fruit / vegetable so it’s healthier than juicing. The setup is easy – you have a cup and a top. And cleanup is easy – rinse the cup and top. It has 600 watts of power so it can pretty much grind up anything. It can bust open seeds, crack through stems, and shred tough skin. It has 8 vs. 4 blades like your classic blender – that helps too.

Here is my special V8 recipe:

  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Parsley
  • Whole lemon peeled
  • Red pepper (or yellow/green)
  • Flax seed
  • Plus a splash of tabasco sauce if you like it spicy
  • Ice
  • Also try fresh burdock root which you can find in Asian markets

Just shove the cup until it’s full.

Add spring water to the “Max” line, and blend.  (I may be a tiny bit over and will pour a bit out 😉

My Sister’s Amazing Lox & Bagels

Leave a comment

My sister is one of the best cooks I know. She is super creative in the kitchen so each meal is a unique experience. I woke up this morning to the smell of sautéed onions and jalapeños (we are from New Mexico so in our family we think you’re in heaven when we happen upon those smells)  As I wondered out to her kitchen in sweats and oversized socks, I found a devine cafe crème and the makings of this incredible bagel. ❤

Here is what is in on this whole wheat, everything bagel (noted in photo):  Cream cheese, smoked salmon,  sliced onions, cornichon pickles, tomatoes, sautéed jalapenos, capers, cilantro and fresh squeezed lemon. If you’re looking for a New Year’s day breakfast this would be perfect! I hope everyone enjoys your New Year’s eve day.  My sister made green chile enchiladas for lunch so I’ll share that recipe next!  Click to FOLLOW and you’ll be the first to receive her amazing recipe.
