I have always loved to cook.  It's the cleaning up afterward that I despise.  Well, despise is really a strong word, let's go with dislike.  Anyway, because of the virtual shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, restaurants were not an option for my comfort food cravings, and I had to make them myself.


Breakfast has always been my go-to comfort food.  I love everything about breakfast.  I'm a morning person anyway, so why not fill my belly with deliciousness? When we knew that cooking at home was going to be our mode of operations for a time to come, I started stocking up on the most important of all breakfast foods...bacon.  And even though restrictions seem to be letting up, there is not a week that goes by that bacon is not on my grocery list.

I have learned to make eggs over easy (Yuck), I prefer scrambled, and to cook part of my bacon a little wimpy (Why?), I prefer crisp, and make scattered hard hash browns.  Cooking for 2 has been a challenge though, I prefer cooking for a much larger group. Just ask my co-workers.  Breakfast is my love language.  It can be both simple and still complex depending on how elaborate the spread you are putting on.

I was reading a list of the top foods that were made at home during the Coronavirus safer at home time frame, and to be honest I was a bit shocked with the #1 answer.  Even more shocked that bacon was nowhere on that list.  #Baconislife!

I cooked all of these during the pandemic.  Sometimes all together!  One of these items was the top answer to the poll mentioned above.  See if you can guess which one!
