This is absolutely delicious! It takes some time, but it is well worth the effort.
4 coddled eggs
4 slices nitrite free bacon
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup crumbled cheese (blue cheese, feta, etc)
1 large organic potato (chopped)
¼ cup pecans or walnuts
Few sprigs of chives, chopped
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
¼ cup of oil for frying potatoes (grapeseed oil does well in high heat)
¼ cup coconut oil or olive oil
Greens (use what you like, I used dandelion(good for liver), spinach and lettuce)
Fruit of your choice
1. Coddled eggs
A coddled egg is one that’s baked, steamed or poached until its white is opaque and set and its yolk slightly runny. I poach mine. I put a few inches of water in my skillet, let it come to a simmer and then gently crack the egg over the water, and it plops in. After all 4 eggs are submerged I turn the heat up slightly to a simmer again. Set timer for 4 minutes. When finished I get a slotted spoon and lift the egg out of the water. Set it aside.
When fresh eggs aren’t available, bake them in ramekins. Grease the inside of 4 or 6 oz ramekins. Drop egg into dish, you may pour a little cream and cheese on top if you like. Put all your ramekins in a pot with a few inches of water in it. Cover the pot. Bake for 5-6 minutes until whites are cooked and yolk is slighty runny at 400 degrees.
You can even make coddled eggs in the shell. Put the eggs in pot of water, let water come to a boil, cook for one minute at boiling and then turn heat off. Wait for another 5 min’s. Take out of water, then take shell off. This method doesn’t always work perfectly.
2. Glazing and baking your bacon
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. You’ll need a rack to put the bacon on and a pan to place under it. For easy clean up put aluminum foil on the bottom pan. If you don’t have that spray or grease the bottom pan. Brush bacon with maple syrup on both sides. Place bacon on rack and put in preheated oven. Bake for 30-45 min’s. YUM! your house will smell divine. When cool crumble.
3. Fry Potato
Chop your organic potato up into small pieces. Make sure it is dry before you put into hot oil.Pour oil into skillet. I use grapeseed oil to fry potatoes because it handles high heat well. Turn the heat up to high and then pour chopped potatoes in pan. Fry on high for 3-4 minutes then flip and fry for 3-4 minutes. Turn heat down to medium high and let cook until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Make candied pecans
mix sugar and pecans together and put into a small skillet. Let the sugar melt onto the pecans. This takes 5 min’s. Watch carefully, it burns easily.
5. Chop greens
Wash and chop your greens. Arrange them on the plates.
6. Make dressing
Mix : 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 1/4 cup of oil (I used coconut just for the health benefits)
7. Arrange your breakfast salad! Add the coddled eggs, crumbled bacon, fried potatoes, pecans, chopped chives over the eggs, crumbled cheese, dates and then top it off with the dressing.
Serve with fruit on the side. YUM!
