Fried Apple and Eggies

Don't ask me why I just called them "Eggies", I really have no good explanation for that. It just sounded cuter. This was a bit of an experimental breakfast. The hypothesis was that apples would taste absolutely delicious when cooked in bacon grease with onions and scrambled eggs. The research  time was tasty and I had a willing test subject (Kevin). The conclusion supported the hypothesis, just as I had expected!

These "eggies" were fruity and delicious, with just a touch of sweetness thanks to the cinnamon and nutmeg. I added coconut milk to the eggs to give them a creamier consistency and when you top it all off with a side if bacon, you have a perfect Fall breakfast!

Fried Apples and Eggies
Serves: 2
Time: 30 Minutes

4 slices of bacon
1apple, diced into bite-size cubes
1/4 cup diced yellow onion (about 1/2 of a small onion)
4 eggs
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
Once hot, add bacon to pan and cook until crisp, turning often (about 8 minutes).
While bacon is cooking, dice your apple and onion.
Remove bacon from skillet and set aside, leaving the bacon fat in the skillet.
Using the same skillet, add the apple, onion, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook, stirring often, until softened (about five minutes).
While apples and onions are cooking, beat eggs in a small bowl with coconut milk, salt and pepper.
After five minutes, pour eggs evenly over apples and onions. Cook, stirring often, until eggs are set (about 6-8 minutes).
Divide eggs evenly between two plates and serve each with two slices of bacon.
