Chase’s Breakfast Sandwich
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Complete time: 7 minutes
This weeks recipe is inspired by my littlest brother Chase. I asked him what should I do for this weeks blog and he started naming things, and then locked his answer on a breakfast sandwich that he makes himself every morning. He is pretty creative when it comes to food. This is the best breakfast sandwich you will ever eat. Enjoy!
Bacon was invented by China a couple thousand years ago. The Chinese were curing pork bellies with salt, creating an early form of bacon.Speculation exists that the Romans and Greeks learned bacon production and curing through conquests in the Middle East. The Romans improved pig breeding and spread pork production throughout their empire (baconhis,1).
The Ancient Romans also had an early version of bacon, which they called “petaso,” a shoulder of pig boiled with dried figs, browned, and served with wine. Throughout the Medieval Times, bacon and bacon fat were very important ingredients used by Anglo-Saxon peasants for cooking. The word “bacon” may have come from various sources, particularly from the French word “bako,” the common Germanic “bakkon,” and the Old Teutonic word “backe,” all of which refer to the back of the pig, and date back before the 12th century supposedly (baconhis, 3). The word “bacoun” or bacon was used to refer to any kind of pork. A little later than the 12th century the word “bacon” was used to refer exclusively to the salted and smoked belly that we know today as bacon. In Yorkshire and Tamworth, there were breeds of pigs that were specifically grown for making bacon.
Chase usually uses bagels for his bread, although his favorite kind to use for this breakfast sandwich is english muffins. He likes them nice and toasted and buttered. Then takes some bacon and some protein. He will make himself a sunny side up egg with a yolk, and then cut thin pieces of whatever meat we had from the night before (steak, ham, lamb, tri-tip, chicken). Chase does not like cheese on his but you can put some on optionally. Lastly he takes the last bagel or english muffin and places on top and voila. Finishing touches, he makes himself a nice cold cup of the breakfast blend, rich in nutrients, chocolate milk. Or he will just drink water.
