Cooking has always been relaxing and pleasureable for me and can be a great distraction after you quit smoking

One of my favorite breakfasts is bacon, eggs and rice. When I was a kid my brothers and I made breakfast for our parents every Sunday morning before church. It was either this or French toast.

I slow cook a pound of bacon in a frying pan until it's medium (not crispy and not raw) 45 minutes on low in a 12 inch pan with a lid. I check it every 10 minutes and let the steam out.

Take the bacon out and remove/save all the excess grease except whats coating the pan. (I put a tablespoon on a batch of fresh cooked green beans and use it to season other dishes as well.)

I use 60 second rice. I throw in the ratios on the box to make about 8 cups into the bacon pan, bring it to a boil and then let it sit with a lid and no heat.

Then, I crack in 8-12 eggs, add about half the bacon cut into 1 inch pieces and salt and pepper and let it cook over low heat until they set the rice.

I put my portion in a bowl this morning...change it up! Use a plate? LOL

8-12 eggs

Enjoy but be careful: it's very addictive!
