I will show you how a little planning and prep will make your life so much easier when it comes to getting meals onto the table.
So let’s get back to this breakfast. Yesterday I headed to the farm to pick up these beautiful eggs! They aren’t even 24 hours old… LOVE fresh eggs, there is nothing like them! As always, I encourage you to shop local and get to know your local farmers. In order to show you how I got this breakfast on the table so fast we have to backtrack to yesterday. With a little planning and thinking ahead I was able to create this delicious breakfast! Yesterday for lunch we had BLTs. We love bacon, so I cooked up a little more than we needed so that we could have some for the next day’s breakfast. We also had one of our favorite meals last night for dinner, organic meatloaf with herbed potatoes. Again, I always cook more than we need so that mealtime is quick and simple for the next day.
So to assemble this breakfast I preheated my pan for 2 minutes (watch my great video showing you how to properly season and cook on stainless steel pans). While the pan was preheating I got out the eggs and whipped them up and pulled out the leftovers (bacon and herbed potatoes) from yesterday’s meals. After 2 minutes I added a little butter to the pan and heated the potatoes up for 1 minute. I then added the bacon and heated for about 1 minute. I placed the potatoes and bacon on my plate and added the eggs to the already hot pan. These eggs took only about a 1 minute to cook up. While they were cooking, I cut up the fruit salad. Viola, there is my breakfast in only 5 minutes time.
