So today, I bit the bullet and tried it out! I made four little muffins
First, I cooked up a few pieces of bacon until they were almost done, then placed them in a muffin tin to make little cups. Then, I cracked an egg into each cup and sprinkled it with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Then baked em for about 12 minutes at 400f.
This is what I got:
They turned out great! My yolk had hardened up a bit more than I anticipated, but the top was nice and gooey. I will definitely be making them again. It was very easy!
For dinner the other night, I made something a bit special for my hunny and I.
I went to Whole Foods and picked up two burger patties--one was green onion and garlic, and the other was BBQ.
I sliced some onions and put them in a pan to caramelize while I prepped some sweet fries. I took thin pieces of bacon and wrapped them around some of the sweet fries, covered about half the pan, then put just regular sweet fries on the other half. After I popped those in the oven, I began cooking the burgers.
This is my dinner plate:
(then I drenched my burger in my ranch dressing)
I didn't think sweet potato and bacon would go as well together, but it was a delicious match. It was reminiscent of bacon-wrapped dates, but not as sweet, which was fine by me. Hunny really enjoyed the meal too. The onions came out perfectly! I was moaning over them as I would taste-test them while they cooked, haha! What can I say, I'm a girl who loves her onions.
Tonight, hunny and I are going to Elephant Bar! I'm very excited to try something new!
