Bacon and Eggs: Fast and Easy Family Breakfast
Bacon and eggs. Orange juice. Family. Simple pleasures that start any day off on a high note. What's not to love about that?
Scrambled eggs was one of the first thing I ever learned to cook. My mom taught me when I was little and I remember how grown up I felt making them along side of her. My favorite part, which will come as no surprise to you if you know me, was adding the shredded cheese. I'd shred it by hand right over the bowl, so it fell right in. Then, I'd pour it in after I had used a hand mixer to mix the milk and eggs. The cheesier the eggs, the better! Add bacon, which my mom would make once I learned how to and while I made the scrambled eggs, and voila! You've got bacon and eggs! Comfort food at its finest! A fabulous and delicious childhood memory!
Bacon and Eggs Bar
Fast forward many years later and I find that I really love tips and tricks for saving time in the kitchen, especially when making breakfast foods like bacon and eggs, Belgian Waffles, or Breakfast Burritos. Why? Plain and simple: So that I can spend more time at the table, talking as a family.
