How to Prepare Homemade Bacon Crumbles

I have several recipes using bacon crumbles, so I decided to post step-by-step instructions on how to prepare these at home.

Process is not complicated, and will not take more than 15-20 mins along with cooling down.

Zuppa Toscana (Italian Sausage Soup)

Zuppa Toscana (Italian Sausage Soup)

Zuppa toscana (or italian sausage soup with skin on potatoes, bacon and kale) is one of the reasons I usually go to Olive Garden for. Now with this recipe I don’t have to anymore (but I still can :), they also have neat tiramisu).

This soup has very distinctive italian taste because of spices in sausage. By the way either mild italian chicken meat mix with spices or sausages themselves will work for this recipe. I think meat mix is a bit easier to handle.

Using canned broth for this recipe is easier and saves time, but isn’t absolutely necessary, you can cook the broth yourself.

Serve this soup hot, that way it will provide nice warm feeling especially on cold weather. If you need to reheat the soup leftovers, don’t overheat it, just bring to light simmer and serve.

Fresh Broccoli Salad with Raisins and Sunflower Seeds

Broccoli is one of vegetables I never tried before we came to US. Amongst other foods prepared of broccoli, fresh broccoli salads are pretty popular here.

And I think variation with fresh broccoli, onions, raisins, sunflower seeds and bacon crumbles is the most popular one.

If you wish to make salad lighter skip the bacon (obvious decision) and use lighter mayo.

Bacon and Eggs with Tomatoes

Bacon and Eggs with Tomatoes

Fried eggs dishes are usually breakfast food, however they are also coming handy when you need to prepare and eat something fast.

Fried eggs with bacon and tomatoes is my favorite way of preparing eggs: easy, tasty and fast. The ingredients in recipe will make a portion for a breakfast for two, adjust amounts if you need more or less.

Cherry or campari tomatoes are perfect for this dish, but if you have any other kind – that will work as well. And if you don’t like bacon for some reasons – replace it with half spoon of butter, however I advice to keep it in, for the perfect taste.
