Bakin’ With Bacon and The King

July 13, 2019

Happy Saturday from the Castle Baconia – I am your KING!

I always enjoy taking over the kitchen here on Saturdays from our usual royal Chef.   He gets a day off and I get to share a bacon recipe with all of you…………..today’s is a yummy one too I’m sure you will agree.

Bacon and Chicken Pan-Fried Sandwiches

INGREDIENTS  (for four sandwiches)

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 12 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2  tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chives (chopped) – and this is optional too
  • 1 cup chicken (cooked and shredded)
  • butter (for spreading)
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 8 slices smoked cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon until crispy
  • Place the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, chives and chicken in a bowl and mix well to combine.
  • Spread both sides of the bread with butter (you will fry sandwiches butter side down of course!!)
  • Put cheese slice on bread, add cheese and chicken mixture, top with another slice of cheese and bread.    You have enough mixture for FOUR of these sandwiches!
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over low heat and cook the sandwiches in batches if necessary for 3-4 minutes each side or until golden and the cheese is melted.

Oh do I have to tell you how divine this is?    We love chicken around here and bacon too so how can you miss with this combo.   Also, I know this is NOT a “diet option” but when my Mom made this she fried boneless chicken breasts for the chicken – of course we had more than the cup we needed for this recipe but she and my Dad love fried chicken sandwiches.    Anyway I’m mentioning this because the crunch from the fried chicken and the crunchy bacon were a GREAT combination for those who love that CRUNCH!   Mom didn’t shred the chicken TOO much either – left it kind of chunky.  Make these sandwiches however YOU want to – just use the ingredients we gave you and you can’t go wrong!!

So are you interested in making this one?    I hope so……….it really is easy as you can see and maybe a combination of things you wouldn’t have thought of……….but DEFINITELY delicious!

See?  Even doctors recommend bacon!  

 

Have a Royal and Bacon-filled Weekend!!!!

King Teddy

Bakin’ in Baconia

January 27, 2018

It is I – your King of Baconia – King Teddy

and we’re bakin’ with bacon this morning!

Who says a King can’t cook right?   Right!    I invade the castle kitchen every single Saturday morning to bring you some fun stuff made with bacon in mind because we all are – after all – BACONIANS!

Today I have an EASY EASY EASY recipe but it’s quick and tasty and my Dad LOVES these for breakfast.    Ready??

I’m waiting to sample what you’re making King Teddy!

BRING IT ON YOUR ROYAL HIGHNESS!

King Teddy’s Easy Bacon/Egg/Toast Cups

Equipment:

One muffin tin – doesn’t matter if it’s a six or twelve or more size – however many of these eggs you want to make!   My Mom uses a 6-muffin size tin – five for Dad and one for her (!!!!!).

Ingredients:

However many eggs you want to cook

However much bacon you want to use but at least one strip per egg cup

One slice of bread for each egg cup you’re making

How To Make them:

Preheat your oven to 400.   Butter the inside of the muffin tins.    Cut the crusts off your bread and roughly fashion into a “sort of” circle and tuck a slice of bread into each muffin tin fitting it to the cup snugly.   Put the tin with bread into the oven and let it toast in the 400 degree oven about 5 minutes until lightly browned.    Cook bacon until it’s cooked but still “pliable” and drain.   Turn oven down to 350.    Take a piece of bacon and wrap around the interior of each muffin cup…….then crack an egg into the “cup” – you can top with a little cheese if you want to.    Bake in oven about 15 minutes or until the whites are set.

They will just pop right out of the muffin tins onto the plate – You can use a fork or spoon to take them out…….!

Your family will think the bacon fairy granted their wish – these are easy and delicious!

So you just can’t get much easier than this so give it a try.    I will also tell you that Mom makes these sometimes NOT using the toast – she will line the muffin tin cups with a slice of ham then add the egg, cheese and bake.   Interesting but with the bread it really is fabulous to have everything inside a crusty bit of bread.

YES INDEEDY WE ALL DO ON SATURDAYS HERE IN THE CASTLE!

Happy Saturday from the kitchen of Castle Baconia!

Baking is exhausting – I shall now retire to my chair for a snoozer…….

With Kingly Hugs, King Teddy

 

On a sad note………….

Before we leave we want to say a final farewell to yet another friend………..Mr. Buttons, from the family of Timmy Tomcat – has taken his final trip to join all the other Angels we all know and love and miss.    He had kidney disease and fought a hard fight to stay with his big kitty family and his Dad.    If you haven’t left a message for them, you can visit them HERE to leave one.   Farewell Mr. Buttons.
