    I fix eggs: In a smallish mixing bowl, healthy pinch of salt, 2 TBS powdered milk, (fresh milk does not last, dont even need a glass!), wisk, 2 jumbos, wisk, 1 oz cream cheese cut into smallish cubes/triangles, cook slowly in 'toasted sesame oil'.

    Lots of people find 'TSO' too intense, I happen to love it!

    A few markets around here sell rashers of bacon sliced as thick or thin as one desires.

    How to get freshly sliced bacon:
    • Kill pig.
    • Slice bacon!

    Mine is all "pre-packed stuff" but it only oozes pork fat. There are butcher shops all over Frisco, Berserkeley and Oakland that sell unpackaged bacon...I assume freshly sliced, since they also sell pork belly. Starting at around $10 a pound, I save that for the rich yuppies. My packaged stuff is around $2 to $4 for 12 ounce pack. It works for me when I can find hickory-smoked bacon, but occasionally I have to settle for that gawd-awful sweet applewood-smoked crud from Canada. Which is why I keep Wrights Liquid Smoke around.

    Few weeks ago I bought two nice pieces of pork belly (8 lb = @ $4.99) to make 'char siu' which traditionally is made with pork belly. Takes 10 minutes of a low boil so's its not like eating pure fat.

    So, trimis, you're from San Francisco? I'm from San Diego, well SD north county.

    Can't even get pork belly at supermarkets here. Safeway will special order a goose year-round, but pork belly never. Only butcher shops have it, and its like twice the price of their bacon. Mutton is another thing MIA here.

    I'm near the Berkeley/Oakland border...just barely outside the CrazyZone proper. I go to Frisco for shopping, but only as last resort. Its a pigsty.

    Or slightly easier...buy pork belly. slice it, cure it, and smoke it. Less squealing and mess!

    I thought I would go ahead a advertise a store I used to work at called Williams Brothers. It's a nice little country store in Philadelphia, Mississippi, US that sells fresh cut meat. It's actually what the place is known for (and it's farm and rodeo equipment). The bacon is delicious, as is the bologna.

    Here, (San Diego county), 'Costco' has set aside 8a to 9a for seniors two days a week. (Today) I got there about 8a. The line went around costco, all the way past a BMW dealership, then south as far as I could see. There were 100's of people in line, I turned around & went home. Maybe these people will be getting their fiber eating toilet paper, , , ,

    Ham is an okay substitute for bacon. I put one in the oven a few hours ago, just ate breakfast, but the smell already has me distracted, and it will only get worse in the next three hours. Ain't nothing like the smell of baking ham!

    Over easy: fry the eggs on one side, flip them over, fry on the other side til they stop sticking to the pan...about twenty seconds. The goal is to solidify the whites while keeping the yolk runny.

    I use brand-name hash-browns:
    upload_2020-4-23_23-10-57.jpeg I tried all the recipes, and never could make at home any half as good as these.
