Breakfast “Pizza”

Breakfast “Pizza”

One thing we’ve discovered recently is that baking all of your bacon in a giant batch, and then reheating it in the microwave throughout the week yields results virtually identical to baking it every morning. Same tasty bacon with way less time, dishes, and bacon smell. That’s a major win. In a similar vein, we … Continue reading

Brussels Sprouts Hash

Brussels Sprouts Hash

I think there is a general set of dishes that can be appropriately labeled a “hash.” Typically they incorporate previously cooked meat in chopped form + potatoes. Granted, the general expansion of brunching and places like Hash House A Go Go suggests this term is somewhat more expansive, and I use the term “hash” as … Continue reading

Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am a firm believer that dessert should be as rich as possible. I’m not interested in overly sweet conduits for sugar; I want some fat in there, too! This recipe hits the sweet spot (har har).

Warm Butternut Squash & Bacon Salad

Peppery arugula + tangy sherry vinegar + crunchy pecans + sweet butternut squash + salty, chewy bacon = delicious.

This is a very imprecise recipe and can be easily modified with … Continue reading

Poached Eggs & Hollandaise with Squash & Spinach

It’s a general rule that a weekend isn’t complete if breakfast doesn’t include something slightly decadent. Sometimes it is a plate full of salty, crispy home fries, sometimes PaleOMG’s carrot cake pancakes, and today it was my first-ever attempt at hollandaise. It was super easy, super delicious, and, now that I know this, I’ll probably … Continue reading

Okra Hash with Shrimp and “Grits”

Okra Hash with Shrimp and “Grits” Serves 2 Okra Hash 3 pieces thick cut bacon, cut into short pieces (like lardons) 1/2 onion, diced generous … Continue reading

My Favorite Breakfast

When I find something I like, I’m a creature of habit. ┬áNearly every morning for a month, I was eating sauteed bacon, onion, and cabbage topped with two runny fried eggs. ┬áIt is warm and slightly salty with the chewy bits of bacon, and I love the sweetness of the caramelized onions and the softened … Continue reading
