Bacon and eggs, the quintessential breakfast duo, are a staple on many morning plates. But even the most beloved classics can benefit from a dash of novelty. Dive into this curated collection of 25 ways to eat bacon and eggs and elevate your breakfast experience!
We eat bacon and eggs for breakfast every morning these days since we have dozens of eggs coming on from our hens each afternoon! For a while it was oatmeal, but we are (for now) attempting to cut down on starches.
