Saturday Special: Breaking Ba(conEggCheesecakes)d

Yeah I know the name doesn’t make any goddamn sense but it’s not my fault that the combination of these delicious treats and the end of one of the greatest TV shows ever has rendered me unable to think of a proper name so you’ll just have to live with my terrible decision.  It’s bacon and eggs, my tribute to Walter White’s birthday breakfast in the week of my own birthday, what more could you want?  Oh, cheese?  Yeah it’s got that too.

I’ll admit, this is a recipe that has ‘wing it’ written all over it, so really this post today is more of a suggestion of how this can be done.  But if you do it my way no-one gets hurt and I won’t be forced to tell the authorities, got that?  We’re posting this just in time for a late-ish Saturday morning breakfast, so you can make this RIGHT FREAKIN’ NOW. This about food, the most important thing in the world, and bacon and eggs are good for you, okay?

What you’ll need (makes approximately 8 cakes):

  • 3 eggs
  • 5-6 tablespoons milk (whole/semi-skimmed/skimmed, doesn’t matter)
  • 4 rashers of bacon, cut in half
  • grated cheese (optional, and how much you use is up to you, but you won’t need much)
  • A dash of paprika, salt and pepper (optional, y’know, if you like your food to TASTE OF SOMETHING)

You will also need silicon fairy-cake moulds, well I guess if you have a fairy cake pan you could use that but like I said,it’s my way or the cry-way.

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5

2. Beat the eggs together with the milk, paprika, salt and pepper

3. Lightly brush oil or spray cooking spray inside the moulds or cake try. Take a piece of the bacon and wrap it round the inside of each silicon mould, hopefully the ends should meet after a round of the circumference but if they don’t, it’s not really a problem

4. Now spoon the egg mixture into each mould, coming up to anywhere in between halfway and 2/3 full, because the egg will rise during cooking.

5. At this stage you can add the cheese if you want it all the way through the cake, by spooning it into the egg mixture (alternatively, sprinkle it on after the eggs have cooked and then put them in the oven for another short burst to melt the cheese for a crispy topping.

6. Put them in the oven to cook for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the egg is cooked through.

7. Remove from the oven, allow to cool sufficiently to allow you to remove them from the moulds, and then CHOW THE HELL DOWN
