This is my interpretation of a classic. It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch — and the braised bacon also makes a great snack. This should even become a staple in your dinner repertoire. The bacon is so versatile it can be used for so many things; it will take your BLT game to the next level. — Chef Ben Grupe of Tempus
