About Bacon

Bacon is a type of cured meat that is prepared from pork and usually eaten either as a breakfast food or as part of a sandwich.

Bacon is made by taking strips of pork belly and putting them in a container with salt, sometimes sugar, and other spices. The meat is then left to cure for several days. After the curing process, the bacon can be cooked by frying it in an oven, skillet, or on a grill.

Bacon has been around for centuries and has been used in many different cultures. It was first mentioned in English writing in 1450 when it was referred to as “bacoun.”

  1. Cut bacon strips in half so you have 12 short pieces.
  2. In a small bowl, scramble the eggs and add salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a cold skillet (preferably seasoned cast iron), place as many pieces of bacon as will fit in a single layer, not overlapping.
  4. Turn burner up to MED and cook the bacon halfway through, then flip and continue cooking to your desired doneness. Remove the bacon and add the remaining uncooked bacon to the skillet. Be careful, it may splatter. Repeat until all bacon is cooked.
  5. Reduce heat to MED-LOW and add the eggs to the hot bacon grease (careful, again it may splatter). Let cook in the pan about 15 seconds or so before stirring, this will prevent the eggs from sticking to the skillet. Stir/scramble the eggs occasionally until fully cooked through. Remove from heat and serve with the freshly cooked bacon strips.
