Come Bake With Me!!!
It’s me – Teddy the King of Baconia in his very own kitchen in the Castle here in Baconia. Every Saturday I sneak in (well I don’t have to sneak since it’s my castle) and give the Castle Chef the day off while I mess around in here getting flour everywhere and creating some fabulous bacon delight to share with ALL OF YOU!!
I am going to show you a GEM of a breakfast item to make using – of course – BACON along with some other yummy items including tortillas to hold the whole thing so you can eat them!
Apple Bacon Breakfast Burritos
- olive oil for the pan
- 4 strips apple wood smoked bacon (actually ANY bacon will do – it’s just the extra apple flavoring in applewood bacon that’s extra nice)
- 1/2 cup apple, peeled and cut into small dice
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 3 eggs
- Salt and pepper
- 4 small flour or corn tortillas
- 1/2 cup grated Gruyere or Swiss cheese
In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper, and set aside. Line a small bowl with foil and set aside.
Over medium heat, cook the bacon in a large saute pan, until it starts to brown. Remove it from the pan, pour any excess bacon fat into the foil covered bowl (to throw out once it’s cool), and add the apple and onion to the pan. Over medium heat, cook until the onions are soft and slightly browning, about 4 minutes. Crumble the bacon and combine it with onion and apple. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside in a bowl.
Place the tortillas in the same pan. Over medium heat, let them warm for about 30 seconds, and then pour 1/4 the egg mixture on top of each tortilla. If some egg slides off, just scoop it back onto the tortilla with a small spatula. Sprinkle 1/4 of the cheese onto each egg covered tortilla. Then sprinkle 1/4 of the apple-bacon mixture in the center of each one. Use a small spatula to fold the tortilla into thirds, making a burrito. With the seam side up, turn the heat to low, cover, and cook until the burrito puffs up a bit, about 3 minutes.
Just double or triple the recipe if you’re making more than FOUR total tortillas……….and let’s face it – you know you’ll want to!!!!
How could you resist those faces? Make some BACON!!
Until next Saturday, I, King Teddy of Baconia wish you all the bacon you can eat!
It’s good to be King….when there’s bacon!!!!
