I'm Tired Of Being Good

Eating healthy ... fresh air and exercise ... bah! As Oscar Wilde once said, "Everything in moderation, including moderation."

So tomorrow for breakfast I'm fixing a heaping helping of Chicken-Fried Bacon - with cream gravy, of course.

A majority of health experts suggest consuming this in moderation or not at all.

The following recipe is courtesy of Sodolak's Original Country Inn restaurant in Snook, Texas.

Fried Bacon

1 lb thick sliced bacon, cut in half
1 egg
1/2 cup milk (or cream or half & half)
1/2 cup flour
spices (optional)
oil (for frying)

Cream Gravy

3 tablespoons drippings or 3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons heavy cream (whipping)
salt and pepper, heavy on the pepper

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan over med-high heat.
  2. Whisk egg and milk together in a bowl.
  3. Place flour in another bowl - season it if you'd like (garlic, pepper, salt, lemon, cajun, etc.).
  4. Double dip - first in the egg mixture, then into the flour and repeat.
  5. Fry in oil until golden brown.
  6. Serve with cream gravy for dipping.
  7. To make cream gravy:
Put drippings or butter in a sauce pan over med-high heat. Whisk in the flour until well blended; cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until bubbly. Remove from heat and gradually add milk whisking constantly; return to heat & whisk until the gravy thickens; Whisk in the cream, salt & pepper.

Can't you dip it in flour and milk and then deep fry it - you know, like fried catfish?
