Bakin’ With Bacon and Teddy

Standard

Hello Bacon Fans!   Welcome to the kitchen at Castle Baconia…..and I am THE KING!

This is the second time around for this particular recipe – but it’s so delicious that I just HAD to share it again and remind you that simple things really can be delish if they have the right ingredients in them!   There’s something about the crunchy burrito combined with crisp bacon and sweet apple and eggs that you absolutely MUST try at least once.    So this is a GENTLE REMINDER that breakfast can be fun and easy (and bacony).

Apple Bacon Breakfast Burrito (recipe for two people or one hungry person!)

Ingredients:

  • olive oil for the pan
  • 4 strips apple wood smoked bacon (doesn’t HAVE to be apple wood smoked but if you haven’t tried it – do!)
  • 1/2 cup apple, peeled and cut into small dice (any type of apple)
  • 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

Preparation:

Serves 2

In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper, 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 off, 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.   VOILA!   Breakfast is served!

 

Of course this doesn’t have to be for breakfast only – in fact it’s a great snack (ask my Mom and Dad)……….and it’s a nice combination of flavors – bacon and apple together – yum.

SO have a great weekend……………..whatever you may do…………….and always always always start your day with breakfast of SOME sort.    It’s what gives you the energy to face the day!
