Ryan made "special" bacon from the Primal Cravings cookbook. Some slices were spiced with Penzeys Northwoods Fire seasoning and others with maple and brown sugar. The first batch of maple bacon was so sweet it was like candy. A lot of the "syrup" ended up on the pan, and the second batch of bacon that baked in it, came out perfect. Just the right amount of sweet.
24-32oz ground lamb
3 ripe pears chopped into 1/2" pieces
4-5 small purple potatoes chopped into 1/2" pieces
Nutmeg (use sparingly-don't go crazy)
Preheat oven to 350*
1. Brown the lamb in a large skillet, season with all the herbs/spices remove and drain off any grease.
2. In the same skillet melt 1-2Tbs of fat and begin browning the potatoes for 5 minutes. Season with the herbs/spices.
3. Stir in the pears, (also seasoned) and place in your oven for 15 minutes.
4. Remove skillet from the oven and stir in the cooked ground lamb, to re-warm it.
There was just enough leftover for me to enjoy some this morning after my workout along with a little arugula salad topped with walnut oil.
