A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
Wednesday with Donna Hay: Wake Up Call, Breakfast - Bacon Egg Rolls
My 142nd recipe with the Wednesday with Donna Hay group is Bacon Egg Rolls, was chosen for the theme, Wake Up Call: Breakfast, and is found in Donna Hay's book Simple Dinners on page 18.
The ingredient list: bacon, eggs, cream, salt, pepper, and tomato jam (I made her version found on page 174 of Modern Classics 1 which is tomatoes, onion, malt vinegar, salt, pepper, a very little sugar, rather than use store bought as it is easy and simple and I can control the amount of sugar in it as I don't like it overly sweet).
We don't usually go to a lot of effort around here for breakfast as Mark prefers to eat cereal or muffins or cookies and I don't really like anything sweet early in the morning so I usually go with a simple scrambled egg and an orange. We do make omelettes for dinner once a week and this recipe will work nicely for a weeknight omelette.
When I saw the recipe name "Bacon Egg Rolls," my mind went to something like an Asian egg roll so when I saw the photo, I was pleasantly surprised that this was actually just bacon rolled inside an egg mixture. It's all very simple, easy, and quick with the most time-consuming part being cooking the bacon. I also make the tomato jam (she listed store bought tomato jam in the recipe) and that takes about 20 minutes but you don't really have to keep much of an eye on it until the end so it doesn't burn or stick, the first 15 minutes are free time for you to use as you choose (like cooking the bacon and getting the eggs ready).
The taste is very good, that little bit of vinegary tomato jam pairs so nicely with the bacon, and believe it or not, I didn't even mind that eggs-and-tomatoes-should-not-be-touching, it really was a delicious combination. (The only thing I can think is that they say you have all new taste buds every seven years so maybe my "eggs with tomatoes taste buds" just showed up recently. Maybe my chocolate and coffee taste buds will be along soon! Lol.) Definitely a repeat.
