This is my O face. My BigOBacon face that is. My love affair with bacon has been lifelong. But I never knew how ridiculously sensual bacon could be until Chef Tony introduced me to his hand-crafted, Whole30 compliant, melt-in-your-mouth, best thing to ever tantalize my taste buds... bacon.
If you are a Model Meals customer, I don't have to tell you how amazing BigOBacon tastes. It has been on our menu for months now and many of you can not go a week without it. You are my kind of people.
If you are following the Whole30 plan, you are probably shocked when you read ingredients on something as simple as a package of bacon and then realize there is sugar and additives in almost all of it. Well, Tony threw up his bacon wrapped arm and said, "this doesn't have to be the case!" He starts off by dehydrating organic celery, turning it into a powder, and coating the pork. It is then cold smoked for 4 hours and sliced ridiculously thick. The flavor and texture is in a league of its own. Quite honestly, its orgasmic.
This week Chef Tony decided that his bacon doesn't have to be enjoyed in just strips and bitties. So he created a bacon patty and now my life is complete. Paired with a gorgeous pasture-raised egg and an organic sweet potato "bun", this modern McMuffin is all the deliciousness and none of the death. That was harsh, but, for real.
If you need some BigOBacon in your life, you can add a box of bitties onto your weekly Model Meals order. You can also find BigOBacon at the Santa Ana Farmer's Market every Sunday from 10am to 2pm.
*use organic ingredients whenever possible*
1-2 large sweet potatoes
1lb ground pork
fruit of choice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Start off by slicing your sweet potato into large circular discs. You will need 8 slices. Brush each slice with ghee and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until soft and cooked through.
Place your ground pork into a bowl and add salt and herbs to taste. Sage and Thyme are great choices. Separate the pork into 4 portions and form them into thin patties. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in the 350 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
While your potatoes and sausage are cooling down a bit, heat ghee in a skillet to fry your eggs. Use a circular egg ring if you have one. Poaching your eggs is another yummy option.
Build your McMuffin and serve with fresh fruit of your liking.
