Jalapeno Bacon Scrambled Eggs

I could very easily be a full time vegetarian if it weren’t for Bacon and Seafood. I have an extremely difficult time staying away from these two. So for now, the family alternates between full on vegetarian meals and non vegetarian meals. I find this to be extremely effective in stretching the food budget every month in addition to the health benefits.

Farmer John is introducing the new Mild Premium Jalapeno Bacon and they asked me if I would like to test the product and develop a recipe. I accepted and here’s what came out it.

The strips didn’t look any different from the normal bacon strips. I decided to come up with a breakfast recipe using the bacon strips. I took about 5 strips of bacon and cut them into small pieces. Although crispy bacon is truly amazing, I wanted to make keep the bacon “soft”.

I put the cut bacon strips on a frying fan on medium heat, and got back to my multi tasking in the morning. Which mom doesn’t multi task in the morning?  I started going about packing lunches for camps and getting the kids ready when the aroma of the bacon cooking made me stop. The smell was nice, it had a hint of jalapeno, and it wasn’t too over whelming.  I got back to my recipe and out came an amazing breakfast egg dish.
I was concerned that the kids may find the jalapeno in the bacon spicy. They actually didn’t even notice. Infact my 5 year old said that the eggs were delicious after finishing her entire serving and her brother’s leftovers. I am sure if I had mentioned that there’s jalapeno in the bacon, it would have “automagically become spicy”.

Several of my converted vegetarian friends have said that they miss bacon the most out of all the different meats. Who doesn’t love bacon? With eggs, in a burger or as a dessert topping – even vegetarians are tempted by the smell of bacon on the griddle. Known for delivering the highest quality products, Farmer John is synonymous with delicious, crisp and savory bacon. Taking that tradition to the next level,  

With the same great flavor as the Farmer John popular classic bacon, the new mild jalapeno bacon offers subtle spice and flavor that can be added to enhance any mealtime – breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner.
