The farm-style breakfast

Asian farm-style breakfast: fried duck, fried egg and some salad.

The farm-style breakfast usually consists of bacon and egg with some toast. This breakfast has many variants usually characterized by fried egg, meat, and some sort of carbohydrate.

This recipe has been my family’s breakfast meal for over a year and is the preferred breakfast in our home.

Reasons include:

  • Everything can be made in one-pan
  • It is high protein and fat which keeps you fuller for longer
  • Carbs are easy to fit in as the day proceeds
  • Buying in bulk reduces cost
  • We love eggs.
  • We are an athletic household with no underlying health issues, exercising at least 3 times a week.

Ingredients (per person):

  • 2 fried eggs
  • 35g pre-cooked duck (can be replaced with bacon)
  • 150g white rice (optional)
  • Salad with no dressing

Instructions:

  1. First fry the duck or bacon in the pan. Since fatty cuts have their own fat, there is need to use oil. Once the duck/bacon is crispy remove it from the pan.
  2. Then, fry the eggs in the remaining fat. This gives it the that lovely flavor. Take care not to overcook the eggs or burn the fat.
  3. Optionally, you may place the cooked rice in the pan and fry it to absorb the last of the fat.
