bacon and leek breakfast "pizza"

Posted on: Tuesday, April 24, 2012

 Sometimes combining several of your favorite things can end up with questionable results. We woke up Sunday hoping that our desire for bacon, crispy hash-browns and pizza was not going to end up as one of "those" dishes. It most certainly did not. Quite the opposite, actually.

 Bacon and Leek Breakfast "pizza"

3 medium leeks // 1# bacon // 2 cup shredded potatoes // 6 eggs // shredded cheese // Olive oil

 Preheat oven to 450. Combine potatoes, 1 egg, 2 Tb olive oil, and 1 tsp salt in a bowl. Mix gently to combine. Press mixture into pizza pan or cookie sheet. Place in oven and cook until edges begin to brown, about 10 min.
While crust is in oven. Cook bacon to your preferred crispness, place on paper towels to drain. Reserve about 1 Tb. of bacon fat for leeks. 
Thinly slice leeks and rinse really well. Squeeze excess water from leeks and place in saute pan with reserved fat over medium high heat. Saute until beginning to brown.
 Rough chop bacon and combine with leeks in bowl.
Remove crust from oven, top with bacon/leek mixture. Crack remaining eggs and place back in oven until whites are almost set, about 6-7 min. Careful not to overcook. 
When eggs are almost done, remove from oven and sprinkle cheese over the top and continue cooking until eggs are cooked and cheese is melted. Remove from oven, serve immediately. 
Top with your favorite hot sauce and flat leaf parsley or fresh spinach.

    I saw this on instagram and was considering emailing you for the recipe. I didn't even know what it was, but I knew I wanted it.
