This Vermont Smoke And Cure slab bacon is so good I just can’t keep my paws off of it! There’s just something special about how this stuff is put together, and I can’t get enough! I had a slab of it sitting in the fridge since Tuesday night, and it’s been tantalizing me and my wife. But we’ve had a really busy week, and haven’t had the time to spend cooking it up. Until this morning… Somehow, the universe has conspired to force my hand. And thank the heavens for doing so!! Slab bacon for breakfast was probably even better than when we had the slab bacon for desert!
How I did these eggs:
These are celery and crimini mushroom eggs, cooked in the bacon grease of the slab bacon. Here’s how I did it: I started the slab bacon at just below medium (about 4 out of 10) and covered it to let it cook slowly and thoroughly. While it was quietly sizzling away I sliced up the celery and mushrooms, turning the bacon occasionally to give the slab even heat. As I finished with slicing the mushrooms and celery, there was enough bacon grease in the bacon pan to start cooking the celery and mushrooms for the eggs. So I poured off the bacon grease, comfortable in my knowledge that the slab bacon would produce all the grease I would be needing, and more. Cooking the celery and mushrooms, and then the scrambled eggs with the celery and mushrooms took all of 10 minutes, at most. So the eggs were finished before the slab bacon, but not too long before. And then breakfast was served!
The Links I Want to Share:
These are some posts that I encountered on marksdailyapple.com, a Paleo/Primal blog which I generally read everything he has to say (I commute for a significant length of time, so reading is something I do a lot of). This week, Mark has posted a couple of seriously great articles which I need to share with you.
The first article is a blog post Mark found on the Diet Heart Publishing blog, which puts the lie to the “Low Fat Heart-Healthy Diet” in an extraordinary way! It’s a long article, and worth every single second you spend reading it! I read it twice, just to make sure that I had fully digested the information on the post, and have shared it with everyone I speak with regularly. I think it should be absolutely foundational to anyone’s understanding of dietary guidance, regardless of your eventual consciously chosen diet.
The second article is a guest-post from a Poultry farmer about the Chicken available commercially. It validates some of the gripes that I’ve been sharing with you all intermittently, as well as gives us quite a bit of further context on the subject so that we can be well informed in our buying choices. I highly recommend you read it!
