Wow - I have been posting a lot lately. I guess I am in a blabbermouth mood! Or maybe it is the fact that after soooo long I finally have a real sized kitchen! It's so great to have countertops at last!!!
Anyway, here is a basic breakfast I have been eating this week. It is just so good! I discovered something that seems so simple and stupid but ...well, I didn't know it before.
One piece of Applegate Farms Sunday bacon, cut up and cooked. Grease poured off (saved of course). Then throw a bit of pastured butter in the pan and scramble two eggs (usually eat one but the eggs I got are really small). When it is almost done, throw in a couple chopped zebra tomatoes. Have you had these? They are good! Tangy!
EAT! Fills ya up for a while!
OK so here is the simple thing. Eggs with butter. Uh - duh. Haven't the French told us this? How did I miss it? The butter somehow makes them taste AMAZING!!! Like heaven! I often cook them in bacon grease and yes, butter tastes even better.
The butter I have been using is pastured raw milk butter from Organic Pastures, I get it at the FM. It is unsalted but with the "stuff" from the pasture it tastes salty to me! (Do you know-I used to hate butter, I thought it was gross. WTF???) You probably know you can make your own butter really easily from cream, I've done it before in my crafty homesteader moods. A great kid's project too! But it is cheaper to buy it.
Funny thing is I told a friend of my butter/egg revelation and he said "Oh no-too much cholesterol". I don't try and argue nutrition with people so I just said "Who cares? It's so good it's worth it."
And it is.
Have a great weekend!!! Eat lots of good butter! xoxo
