This morning I created a quite delicious omelette made out of leftovers and other ingredients in my kitchen.
a bit of basil
a bit of truffle oil
2 slices of thick bacon
about 1/8-1/4 small red onion
half breast of chicken
1 tbls butter
First, fry the bacon on medium-high heat in a 9″ frying pan. After that’s done, sautee the chicken in the same pan as the bacon. Remove from heat.
Cut up dill. In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, basil, truffle oil, dill, thyme, salt, and pepper. Whisk until even.
Put the pan on medium heat [no need to remove the bacon grease ]. Once it’s ready, add the butter. After it’s melted, pour in the egg mixture. Once it’s set after a couple minutes, tilt the pan and use a spatula to allow the uncooked mixture to flow beneath the cooked portion. After another minute or so, add the filling on top of the omelette. Cover the pan, and wait until eggs are done, and cheese is melted. Remove from heat, flip eggs if desired. Serve, and enjoy!
So I perfected the art of cooking bacon this weekend. Over New Years, I tried my hand at grilling bacon. Two days ago, I not only grilled bacon, but I grilled *marinated* bacon. Take that! It was delicious…
The basic recipe was mostly italian dressing, along with a little of each:
* olive oil
* balsamic vinegar
* vinegar based barbecue sauce
* red pepper
* lemon pepper
* basil [fresh preferably]
I mixed the marinade together, threw it in a ziplock bag with the bacon, and left it in the fridge overnite.
enjoy! let me know if you come up with anything better…
