Well today was “Bacon Sunday II” and I believe I celebrated well!
I was in the kitchen makin’ my “famous” waffle breakfast this morning. It’s a production…it all starts with bakin’ the bacon! I want the bacon to be finished when the first waffles hit Better Half’s plate.
While the first tray of bacon is in the oven, I make my whipped cream from scratch and start cooking down berries for a fruit compote (today, it was just raspberrys). It takes a few short bursts in the nuker to really break the berries down. By the time that’s all done, the first tray of bacon is out of the oven and the second tray goes in. That’s the single to heat up the waffle iron and make the batter (secret ingredient – a good 2 tsp of vanilla). I have it down so that I can start cooking the first waffles while getting the table made and the last tray of bacon out before they are finished.
Today, a special treat, Better Half made fresh squeezed OJ!!
So my Bacon Sunday breakfast was three waffles with warm raspberry compote and homemade whipped cream along with 6 slices of delicious bacon, coffee and fresh OJ. KA-POW!!
But…as they say….that’s not all. We had some bacon left, so Better Half added it to our slow simmering Potato Soup for dinner…and can I just say…YUM, F’IN YUM!
So there you have it, the alpha and omega of bacon dining on Bacon Sunday!
