four people you can place four to eightsliceson a baking sheet lined with aluminumfoil pop that into a coldoven then set it to 450 degreesfahrenheit and set a timer for 20 to 25minutesand once your timer has gone off yourbacon should be a beautiful golden brownand cooked perfectly if it’s not crispyor dark enough then just leave it inthere and tell well it isup to 10 more minutes then pull that out
your bacon next up is our hash brownssnag three chunky rusted potatoes washand peel them beautifully then using abox grater grate all of your potatoesthen place them into a large bowl seasonthem with salt very generously tosstogether and you’re gonna want tosqueeze them pretty aggressively to coaxsome of that wawa out then give this anice rinse underwater drain them thenplace in a dish towel wrap that up andwring out as much water as you can fromthere just heat up a medium non-stick
vegetable oil to coat the bottom of thepanaround two and a half tablespoons oncethe pan is hot hot whoa press in some ofyour potato mixture enough to fit thatpan edge to edge then let that cook forthree to four minutes or until you get anice crust and the potatoes are halfcooked through give it a nice flip orwell as best you can then repeaton the other side once it’s a beautifulbrown on both sides and the inside iscooked through it’s done season its
with the rest of your potatoesnext up is our pancakes i find it soannoying that people go to buy box mixwhen in reality it takes literally threeto five minutes just to make your ownmix sorry to admit it but you’re savingyourself little to no time by doing thatjust a note frompapa this recipe is from my ultimatepancake guide the link for that is inthe description you make the batteroptionally let it rest then heat up alarge non-stick pan over medium heat
vegetable oil then cookthree to four quarter cup mounds ofbatter at a time for about three minutesper side or until you flip and get agorgeous dark golden brown on both sidesand the inside is fluffy and cookedthrough stack and place those to theside on a plate to keep warm as youfinish the rest for the eggs you cancook them however you want but typicallyi see them scrambled so we’re gonna dothat i call this a medium scramble notrubbery but also not super loose and
non-stick pan heat up two tablespoons ofunsalted butter until it’s meltedand bubbling crack four to six eggs intoa medium-sized bowland give those a nice whisk untilthey’re homogeneous then pour those intoyour pan then while constantly stirringwith a spatula and shaking the pan cookthese bad boys for about two to threeminutesand look when i say constantly i meanconstantly don’t stop the movementyou’ll notice that they go from creamy
curds and as soon as it’s formed curdsand there’s just a little bit of liquidleft and they aren’t total rubber removethem from the heat season a taste withsalt and optionally a little bit ofblack pepper and those are your eggslisten if your eggs do happen to gorubbery well thenpapa no hug now to plate this up wellyou’re gonna need aplate then place down your fat stackfollowed by a pad of butter some of youreggs a touch of fresh cracked black

three clusters of cherry orgrape tomatoes season the taste withsalt optionally toss in a couple sprigsof fresh thyme doesn’t that just lookbeautiful already it’s about to have meboissen now just let those cook withoutmoving them around too much for threeminutes or until the mushrooms get anice color carefully flip all yourmushrooms and cook for another threeminutesuntil the mushrooms get a nice color andthe tomatoes are softened lovely and
the side now for your meat we’re notusing regular old belly bacon youspecifically needenglish back bacon it looks like thisit’s essentially the loin from well theback of our three little pigsnow heat up a medium-sized pan overmedium-high coat the bottom with alittle bit of oil then once that’sripping hot sear off your back bacon forone to two minutes or until you get somecolor then flip and repeat on the otherside you gotta steer this quick
if done right you may consider it overbelly bacon or well maybe not it’s up toyou once you’ve seared off your desiredamount of back baconin that same pan add in some alreadycooked sausages of choice or you canboil your own from raw that’s up to youthese are miniature smoked sausages thenjust simply sear those guys on all sidesfor about one minute or take in a nicecoating of deep brown with a touch ofchar here and there about five minutestotal place those to the side to keep
