Ready In:




  • In a large, heavy skillet on medium heat, fry the bacon in batches until almost crisp. Set each batch on a plate covered in paper towels to drain off the excess fat. Place on a plate in the oven to stay warm.
  • Pour off all but 1 Tbsp of the bacon fat from the skillet.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, flour, salt and pepper until just blended. Slowly add the half-and-half until ingredients are well blended and frothy.
  • Add the egg mixture, along with any optional ingredients, to the skillet. Reduce the heat to very low and slowly cook until the egg mixture has set to a firm custard consistency. (check the bottom often to make sure it is not burning, but don't stir the mixture) It should take about 20 mins to set.
  • Top with the bacon slices and chives or green onions. Slice into wedges and serve.

  1. This was pretty simple to make and was very tasty. I baked some applewood smoked bacon in the oven and used the drippings for the egg cake. I added the chives to the egg mixture, which gave it a nice, onion-y flavor. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
  2. Wonderful breakfast!! I made 1/3 of the recipe, and as the intro states, added my own mix of veggies (onion, red bell pepper, hashbrown potatoes & cheddar cheese) and chose to top with fresh chives. I used my small cast iron skillet and it didn't take as long as the recipe states, but I think I should have used an even smaller pan, as it was quite a thin egg bake. Served this with blueberry muffins and some fresh fruit. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.
