The January Blues

I'm trying to ease into a diet. I'm sure you can tell immediately how well I'm doing. The problem with having gone to culinary school is that I'm usually able to make a meal out of anything left in the fridge. And it's not usually very healthy...

Real florist work here: processing 1,000 roses. It smelled fantastic. My arms look like the cat clawed up me

Fried Bacon and Egg Sandwich
Try it with any cheese combo that sounds good. Blue cheese or cheddar would be a big winner here. 
  • 2 pieces of bread
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 3 pieces of bacon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbl cream cheese
  • 1 slice havarti
  • 2 slices gruyere
  • 1 scallion, cut on the diagonal
Toast your bread. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add canola oil. Fry bacon in hot oil until crispy on both sides- about 3 minutes on each. Drain on some paper towels. Crack egg into a small bowl. Pour egg into hot bacon fat and fry for about 3 minutes. Finish the eggs by seasoning with salt and pepper and spooning the bacon fat over the egg yolk. If desired, drain the egg on more paper towel. Smear the cream cheese on the toast and top with the cheese. If necessary, throw the toast back into the toaster/ under broiler to melt the cheese. Top the cheese with a few pieces of scallion and the fried egg.
