Perfect for brunch! I love this recipe because it is a great way to have vegetables for breakfast because of the bacon and the cheese it makes all vegetables taste really good. My kids never complain about it. It’s how I got them to like asparagus. I’ve made this with what ever vegetables I have in the fridge my favourites are asparagus, peppers, zucchini, broccoli (specially the stem), onion, celery. The main idea is using up the bacon grease. Don’t forget to add some grease to your dogs food. I like to split a pack of bacon in 3 or 4 portions and freeze it so you can make this recipe a few times with one package.
Baked Eggs and Bacon
1/3 package of bacon
9 eggs (more or less depending on how many people)
Water, milk or cream
Asparagus, bottoms cut in half inch pieces
Coloured Pepper, cut into pieces
Green onions, diced
Fresh basil, optional
Salt and pepper
Herbs or spices of your choice, optional
Preheat oven to 400
Place bacon in a casserole dish and bake until the fat cooks out about 12 minutes turning over half way through. Prepare eggs in a large measuring cup or bowl and whisk. Add a little water or milk and fresh basil if using, salt and pepper. Take out the bacon and cut up into pieces, leave the fat. Swirl the fat around in the dish. Add celery, peppers and bottoms of asparagus. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and sprinkle on the green onions, then the tops of the asparagus and the bacon pieces. Turn oven down to 380. Bake for 15 minutes and take out and add cheese. Bake for 10-15 more minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and enjoy.
Sorry to the vegans but the kids love it.
Have a nice long weekend! Enjoy the special moments!
