On those mornings when I actually do have a few minutes to spare, I love sizzling up a couple pieces of bacon . . . and then scrambling eggs in the bacon fat. My favorite bacon, hands down, is Trader Joe's Uncured Dry-Rubbed Sliced Bacon. It's less than $5, and it's the best store-bought bacon I've ever had. Plus, unlike many other brands of bacon, this one is free of sodium nitrate and nitrite. Not only do I keep it as a breakfast staple, but I also love that I can use it throughout the week in dinners like pasta carbonara.
