I admit it, I checked the date that I drafted this post, October 22nd. Still my family completely gobbled it up and I thought it was such a creative recipe, that I had to post it. I made it when we were still getting our farm share on Tuesdays and I would come home with 3 dozen super fresh eggs. I was inspired to try this by Pam at www.paleotable.com. She is one of my most favorite bloggers. I love her recipes and when I look at her picture, I feel like we could be friends. I wish I knew her in real life.
Egg and Bacon Lattice Pizza – inspired by Paleo Table
Prep Time – Bacon 10 minutes or so, Eggs 5 – 10, but you can do this while the bacon is cooking.
Cook Time – Bacon 15 minutes, Eggs 10 minutes, again you can do this while the bacon is cooking, Assembling 5 minutes
Servings – 6 +/- depending on how hungry your family is
2 packages of bacon (I used Organic Applegate Farms), use turkey bacon if pork is not your thing.
- 10 – 12 eggs, depending on how many things you add in.
- Add ins, you choose – onions, mushrooms, peppers, sausage, shredded cheese, ham, broccoli (you get the drift)
- Salt and pepper
- Ghee or butter for cooking the eggs
- Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Take out a large cookie sheet and cover it with aluminum foil. I typically don’t like to use it, but with bacon, parchment paper just doesn’t cut it.
- Place a baking rack on top of the cookie sheet. This is important, don’t try this recipe without it.
- Lay out one package of bacon in a vertical line.
- Take the second package of bacon, one piece at a time and weave the bacon in and out of the vertical pieces. Be patient, it is kind of hard at first, but then gets much easier.
- Cook bacon about 15 minutes, checking on it frequently because it would be a shame to burn it after all this work.
- While the bacon is in the oven, get your eggs started by mixing them up in a large bowl. Add water or milk if you want and salt and pepper.
- Dice your veggies and meat.
- Warm butter or ghee in a large skillet.
- Add the egg mixture to the pan and start to scramble.
- Add your veggies and/or meat, stirring constantly.
- Sprinkle cheese if you want.
- MAKE SURE YOU ARE CHECKING YOUR BACON DURING ALL OF THIS!
- When the bacon is cooked, let it cool for a few minutes and then take the baking rack off the cookie sheet. Make sure to spread some aluminum foil on your counter to catch excess drippings.
- Blot the bacon with a paper towel to absorb some of the excess grease.
- Layer on the eggs on top of the bacon.
This recipe was especially fun to make because it brought me back to when my kids were little and they make those woven potholders for me. This is the exact same concept. Hope you have fun too!
