Hi friends. I’ve been away for a while. But I’m here now. Did you know that natural sunlight is pretty imperative to food photography if you have no artificial lighting? Yeah. It is important. I’ve just been taking awful photo after awful photo. But then I woke up one morning and it was like Beyonce was standing in the doorway: there was an overwhelming burst of sunshine, my hair blew back, and I knew everything was going to be OK. I whipped up my usual Bacon, Egg & Avocado Bagel and I snapped these pictures for you. This recipe is fucking delicious.
I wake up like this.
This recipe is Flawless.
It was the Best Thing I Ever Had.
OK OK I’m done.
I love to make this when I’m a lazy POS but want to feel like I’m adulting on a Saturday, and I also make this on a Monday when I have fifteen minutes to get out the door. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it looks sort of impressive. Look at her! She cooked bacon AND eggs AND sliced an avocado…and balanced the whole thing on a bagel!
- 1 “everything” bagel
- 2 eggs
- 2 slices bacon
- 1 whole avocado, cut in half and sliced
Lay your bacon in a frying pan and cook on medium heat. When the bacon is nearly done, fry your eggs. I like mine over-easy.
While the eggs are frying, toast your bagel. Butter the bagel. Top each half of the bagel with one egg, one half avocado slices and one strip of bacon, split in half.
Season generously with salt and pepper. This is crucial. Even out that creamy avocado flavour with some salt to sharpen it up. What did that bald guy from Master Chef say once? Salt is like a magnifying glass for your food. Or whatever. He’s so mean!
God this recipe is easy.
