Try this beautiful slow fried egg served on top a toasted bagel with a rosemary bacon hash, I am sure it will win you and your taste buds over.
Makes 2 servings
Full time: approximately 30 minutes
You will need:
1 plain bagel slightly toasted
4 small potatoes
8 sprigs rosemary
1 small onion
1/4 pound bacon strips
1 tbsp butter
2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Let us begin:
Start by dicing your potatoes, onions, and bacon into pieces approx the same size. I stick to around 1/2" pieces
Add a small amount of oil to a pan and brown bacon, onions, and potatoes, over a med-high heat. Don't use to much oil, it is only to get the process started, bacon creates oil as it cooks.
Once pieces have begun to brown and onions begin to turn translucent. Lower heat to a low and add in half the amount of thyme. Add in salt pepper and 6 springs of rosemary (remove leaves from stem and use just leaves)
Allow to cook down for 5-8 minutes
In a separate smaller pan, melt butter over high heat. Crack and place egg in pan, lower heat to med, and pull pan, half off heat. this will create a very hot heating surface which will cook egg white almost instantly, while letting yellow cook slowly.
Carefully slide egg from pan to top of bagel
Garnish with the remaining thyme and rosemary
