Bacon… and… Eggs.
The most simple yet satisfying breakfast I can think of.
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Align bacon on baking dish.
- Place bacon in oven for about 10 minutes or until desired crisp.
- In a small pan, spray lightly with non–stick spray, and crack 2 eggs in (I wouldn’t do more than 3 at a time).
- Add salt and pepper.
- Keep on medium–low heat.
- Immediately place a lid on. I like my eggs over–easy so it takes just a few minutes.
If your eggs are very fresh, you’ll notice a layer that isn’t cooking very well. Tilt the pan back and forth a little until the edges of this layer reaches the heat. That helps. FYI: This layer is called the middle albumen and is very high in protein and riboflavin!
The bacon looks super greasy here so I normally place them on paper towels when they’re done.
I would always like at least one piece of toast to sweep up what’s left of the yolk on my plate.

Your bacon and eggs look so good, I like the idea of doing the bacon in the oven. One less thing to watch on the stove…unless you set the bacon on fire in the oven which I have done before.
Thank you! I think we’ve all burnt something in the oven, so timers can be your best friend. I’ll also wait a few minutes after the bacon is in, then make a few servings of eggs, and by that time they’re ready.
