TGIF, friends! I am excited to share another ‘Fry-day’ post with all of you! My weekend agenda always includes sleeping in and laziness. To start the day off right, I’ve decided to share the best way to serve up good ole fashion bacon and eggs — fried style. I love waking up on Saturday or Sunday mornings and filling my kitchen with the sounds of crackling bacon and eggs, with the added aroma of 7-up Biscuits and gravy (stay tuned for this recipe!). It may not be the healthiest of choices, but what would late weekend mornings be without treating yourself every now and then?! You can walk it off later!
Frying and flipping an egg definitely takes some time before perfecting the art of keeping the yolk in tact. Don’t be discouraged, it took me a while to master. And for the bacon, who doesn’t LOVE waking up to the smell and crackling sounds of fried bacon. Follow the directions below to ensure the best traditional southern breakfast around. Happy Fry-day y’all! YAY!
Fried Egg Directions:
1. Slice a tablespoon of butter and place in a hot frying pan with flame on medium.
2. Once butter is melted, spread evenly across frying pan, so your egg doesn’t stick.
3. Crack one egg into the center of the frying pan, and lower heat to medium low.
4. Cook until whites are set.
5. Flip the egg, and let fry for a quick moment-depending on how runny you like your fried egg.
A great utensil I use to flip my egg is a flexible metal spatula. It really helps give you better range of motion so you can really get up under that egg!
My best friend, Ashley, told me a trick to know when the egg is ready to flip. She said that once the whites were “popped up” that the egg is ready.
Fried Bacon Ingredients:
-Oscar Mayer Thick Cut Bacon (*if you have a local butcher, ask for their thick cut bacon)
-Griddle or large frying pan
Fried Bacon Directions:
Cover a plate with a couple of paper towels, so grease can drain after you pull the bacon off the pan.
Heat griddle on high until the pan is nice and hot.
Lower stove top temperature to medium-medium low
Evenly place bacon on the pan, allowing a little space in between.
Every couple of minutes flip the bacon.
Pull the bacon off the pan, place on plate with the paper towels.
Cook the bacon SLOWLY. This will help keep some moisture in your bacon so that it is crunchy but won’t break your teeth!
Flip the bacon often as it will help cook the bacon evenly and keep it nice and flat.
