Eggs & bacon wrapped in a seaweed sheet


Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 strips of bacon
  • 2 nori seaweed sheets
  • 2 tbsp half & half
  • 1/2 avocado sliced thin
  • salt & pepper to taste

  • Process

    1. In a medium pan lightly fry the bacon and then set aside.  Depending on the amount of fat left in the pan, some of it can be poured into a small glass container to be kept in the refrigerator for future fat needs.
    2. In a small bowl mix (fork or whisk) eggs, half & half, salt & pepper. 
    3. Pour the mixture into the same pan with the bacon fat and cook on low heat while stirring occasionally until fluffy.
    4. Place half of the scrambled eggs, avocado and 2 strips of bacon on each nori sheet and roll up into a cylinder.
    * Cooking tip * - For reduced pan sticking:  Preheat the frying pan before adding the oil/fat, then heat up the oil (not so much that it smokes) before adding the food.


          
     
     





















     

     




    Hamburger with fried eggs


    Ingredients

  • 1/3 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp fat (pork or bacon fat works best)
  • 2 eggs
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • sauerkraut served on the side

  • Process
    1. In a medium bowl mix the beef with the salt & pepper by hand, but don't over-mix, otherwise the hamburger will be tough.  Form the ground beef in a flat oval shape.
    2. In a small pan add 1 tbsp of fat and fry the beef patty on medium heat until cooked to individual taste (We prefer medium rare for best taste and health results).
    3. Preferably in a different pan, add 1 tbsp of fat and cook the eggs sunny-side-up on medium/low.  Salt & pepper the eggs and cover the frying pan. 
    4. Arrange the eggs on top of the beef patty and serve with sauerkraut.
    * Cooking tip * - To get perfect sunny-side up eggs, use a clear pan cover so that you can see when the whites are done but the yellow is still liquid.
