Dirty Eggs for Breakfast
I'm getting into cooking lately.
When it comes to cooks vs bakers, I've always been on the baking side.
Perfect measurements, recipes, and predictable results fit right into my charmingly OCD nature.
Charmingly, I said.
Also, I have no eye for foods that go together.
For example, I hate Subway. Because I don't know what foods go together. I'm the one who orders the meatball sub with everything on it.
I'm even worse at the Pita Pit (do you have one of those? Same idea as Subway, but with pitas and even more ingredients available). Hmmm...I like jalepenos, and I like tzatziki sauce, and I like black beans. Also mustard, red onions, pickles and Nutella. Give me all of those!
If someone else wants to get me Subway, I'm all for it. I just can't be trusted to pick and mix my own ingredients.
But, after all that, there is something so appealing about a hash.
And I think, maybe, if I think real hard about it, I can come up with some ingredients that would probably go together.
Bacon. Good start.
What about eggs? To make it breakfasty? Oo, good.
And then what if...what if you stacked it all on some fresh baked sourdough bread?
Now I think we're getting somewhere.
Onions and garlic, because they improve everything.
And hey! Presto.
Dirty Eggs a la Me.
Breakfast is served.
Anna's Dirty Eggs
adjust amounts based on how much you want to eat/feed others
8 slices bacon
1/4 c milk
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 loaf fresh baked sourdough bread, if you can get it
Fry up the bacon. While it's cooking, beat together the eggs and about 1/4 c milk. When the bacon is done, pour out about half the grease. Add the onions and garlic into the pan and fry in the remaining grease. When approaching translucent, add egg mixture. Stir and scramble. When almost cooked through, add tomatoes (I added them too early, at the same time as the egg mixture. It's better to add them at the end) and cover for about 2 minutes (this will lightly steam them). Stir until eggs are finished. Serve with sliced bread and butter. And orange juice.
