So, one of those egg council creeps got to Kevin Bacon, too?

*shakes fist*

Before watching this advertisement I had no idea eggs and bacon could be eaten together.

I get to go to Taber this weekend. I plan on cussin' up a storm. For liberty.

I remember reading somewhere (not sure where) that the standard pairing of bacon and eggs was originally invented and promoted as a marketing campaign

Wasn't Kevin Bacon heavily in the Madoff funding pool and basically had his entire family's life savings whiped out and that's why he's suddently back in things like this and not living on that horse farm in Connecticut?

Did they miss the part on TV where Bacon now also goes with heart problems and early death for everyone he knows?

I was going to say the same thing, TheWhelk.

Here's a link with Bacon discussing his Madoff-related losses.

Yeah, he was introduced to Madoff by that guy who directed the Transformers movies.

You might say it was a...

Bay con.

If anyone wants more Bacon with their eggs video, there's a short "behind the scenes" as well.

Did that bacon look weird to anybody else? Like it was strips of raw flesh? Or is that just my craving for raw flesh talking?

Oil for the pan? Heresy. Everybody knows you cook the bacon first, and then there's oil right there already to cook the eggs in.

You cook the bacon in the oven and you cook the eggs in a combination of butter and olive oil.

If you're cooking bacon and eggs and you don't use the bacon grease to cook the eggs in, you're doing it wrong. That is all.

Only if you're making a fried egg, it ruins the color and texture of scrambled eggs.

Fold parchment paper into a leak proof envelope that will, hold two eggs. Put one tablespoon of olive oil in the parchment paper, with one chopped clove of garlic. Microwave this 20 seconds. Take this out and put on it two raw eggs, and fold up your envelope, microwave for 55 seconds. Open your parchment paper in a bowl, spice your garlic fried eggs as you like. I recommend Spike and Tabasco. Throw these on the toast you made while taking about two minutes to whip up some easy/great eggs. No bacon. Yes garlic. It is just my new easy indulgent thing. If you line your bowl with the parchment paper you cooked on, there is no egg mess in the bowl. One teaspoon of oil might do it, it just has to be all over the garlic, so it sautees.

I would not be cordial or woozy if someone materialized in my kitchen, especially before breakfast. What are they saying here, the "average housewife" (how long has it been since anyone dares to use that demeaning term?) Will melt for any actor that drops by? *sigh*

Take as many slices of bread as eggs you wish to eat. (Plain old sliced bread works fine for this). Cut off the crusts, and roll out with a rolling pin. Butter or oil the appropriate number of divots in a muffin tin. Line each divot with a slice of bread. Throw some wilted spinach into each bread-cup, some ham or bacon if you feel like it, and crack an egg into each one. Top with sliced or shredded cheese, salt, pepper. Bake at 350-400 for about 15-20 minutes, or until whites are set and bread is toasty. Remove from oven, let sit in pan a couple minutes, slip out. Breakfast on the go.

I quite like Hueveos High Life, fried egg in a bread hole.

It's even more controllable with quail eggs.

The subtext is that while Hubby's out getting eggs and oil, wifey's getting porked by Bacon.

I don't usually cook with a microwave, but the garlic eggs are so quick and good. I have a lot of parchment paper just now. I gave my cast iron omlette pan to my daughter, drat, yeah I did.

The oil wasn't for the pan. It was for the Bacon bits.

No, scrambled eggs ruin the colour and texture of scrambled eggs.
