5 loaves and 2 fishes: how I pulled off a miracle…

DSC03385-001 We it’s a bit of an exaggeration to say I pulled off a miracle really. OK, maybe I did, because every one knows what a pain it is to get three kids, all with different tastes to eat, to have enough food, and for it all to be relatively healthy, and budget-wise. Wait, call the Pope, I think this was a certifiable miracle.  Here’s what went down. I had 2 leftover bratwursts from the Farmer’s Market, and 5 slices of organic bread, with three kids and one me to feed. How doth one stretch out 2 brats among 4 mouths? Slice them thinly like bacon. Fake it ’til you make it is my motto.  So I am calling this Facon.  And with the 5 pieces of bread, I made French toast, with each kiddo getting one whole piece each, while I cut the other two into thirds so that they could get 2/3 more each. Brilliant! And who says math is not important?

Slice any cooked sausage or bratwurst into long thin slices and fry as you would bacon.
When my kids saw this they all yelled, “Hey, I thought you said we were having bacon?”
“You’re right. It’s not bacon, it’s Facon” and to that, they moaned.  They love me.

Along with the French toast and Facon, I cut up one apple (I only had one), and served a few slices of Colby-jack cheese too.  And like Jesus, I had leftovers.
Amen.

How are you Facon it?

    I love it! I do this sort of thing too and my husband is amazed every time. Why he even doubts me at this point is a mystery!

    Necessity is the mother of invention. Great job on the leftover wizardry. We always say, just add cheese to any thing and you’ve created a whole new meal. :o) I’ve thinly sliced and fried hot dogs like that before. Usually anything fried in coconut oil comes out pretty tasty. And, bananas fried in coconut butter is oh. so. good! ~Sharon
