This was delicious and appealing enough to get it’s own post, even if it is so simple. But it’s the simplicity and the technique that elevate this standard breakfast into something to brighten your whole day. I know you’ll enjoy it. Eat hot! People must wait for perfect eggs. Eggs never wait for people.
Ready for 3 steps?
1. Make Baked Bacon, finishing with a drizzle of maple syrup and crushed red chili flakes
2. Saute some chard or other hearty green in just a dollop of the bacon fat, salt, and pepper.
3. Make the fried egg: In a skillet, melt a pat of butter over low heat. Crack an egg into the butter and put a lid on the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes. 2 for runny yolk and just set whites, 3 for over medium. I wanted a more set yolk, so this particular egg got 2 and a half minutes. Lift off the lid and slide the egg onto the cooked chard.
Couldn’t be better.
