I LOVE THIS PLACE.

Randall/Jae/Ruby do, too, and they treated me to a late birthday brunch on Sunday.

I did not go for a sandwich that afternoon, opting for my typical omelet order instead…

…but Jae did.

…more eggs, and Abe’s Vegetarian Reuben and fries – both of which I stole bites of.

Food was so solid.  I want to come back and eat everything on their big, massive menu.

The Pie Hole

bakeries/cafes/dessert places - dessert - lunch

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Pie Hole post – definitely one of my favorite places in LA.

Apparently, the coffee is great…

…but the pie is where it’s at!

Full disclosure – I did not eat a single bite of any of these (I had just hoovered a giant raisin bran muffin and wanted to be hungry for a big dinner in 4 hours.)  But I know the food is great, so I couldn’t stop taking photos for you!  Here’s some quiche…

….chicken pot pie…

…but she pretty much singlehandedly took down the Mexican Chocolate.

Everyone left very happy.

Recipe: The Best Bacon and Eggs Ever

breakfast - brunch - recipe

The best?  YES, the best.  After eating this bacon…

DSCN7752

…and these eggs at Project Breakfast LA, I had to know HOW.

DSCN7765

Sarah was kind enough to share!  First, the bacon:

  • Source the best quality bacon you can find. (This was Peads and Barnetts Heritage Pork Bacon.)
  • Melt down the Maple + Black Pepper Caramels from Quin Candy in a small pot on the stovetop.  Once you have the caramel in liquid form, set aside.
  • Lay the bacon on a lined sheet tray in a single layer.  Place in a preheated 400 degree oven.
  • Cook the bacon about halfway through, then pull it out and add some of the now rendered hot bacon fat into the pan, with the caramel.
  • Brush the bacon with the bacon fat / caramel mixture (just like you are basting it), then finish cooking in the oven.
  • Let cool for a few minutes before enjoying.

Next up, the Baked Eggs, which can be done with any vegetable combo you like.

  • Caramelize leeks and shallots as the base, then added them to Kale, Mushrooms, Delicata Squash and Cherry Tomatoes.
  • Roast the vegetables (tossed in olive oil and salt and pepper) about 80% of the way to finished.
  • Crack eggs over them and add cheese of your choice (this was Drake Family Farms Chèvre).
  • Finish baking in oven at 400 for 10-12 min (for softer set eggs). Enjoy!
