It is an established fact that bacon is basically the reason the universe was created – it is cosmic perfection distilled into a crispy strip of savory goodness. It’s so good, future wars will probably be fought over it.

With that in mind, it’s fair to ask how one could possible improve upon bacon. How can you alter that which is already perfect and not destroy it? That’s a pretty good question, and if there is one answer, it’s probably this recipe.

First, you’re going to need six slices of soft bread.

You’ll also need an egg. Crack one open and beat it into a nice mixture.

Cut the crusts off the bread slices and squish them flat with a rolling pin. Wrap the cooked bacon in the bread and dip each parcel into your egg mix.

Put everything in a pan and start cooking. You can use butter or even the grease from frying the bacon for even more bacon flavor.
