Lexington BBQ For Breakfast


This is the third of several posts this week and next that are made from leftovers.

I’d mentioned in a previous post that I’d brought home a couple of pounds of chopped pork from Lexington Barbeque in NC and I decided to use some for breakfast.  I added some of the pork, half a good sized green onion, and 1½ strips of crisp fried, chopped bacon to a pan and when it was well warmed, I added two beaten eggs.

In the meantime, I sliced some Cabot cheddar, laid it in the middle of a flour tortilla, and nuked it to melt the cheese.

I added the eggs to the tortilla, rolled it up and topped with some warmed Picante sauce from a jar.

It was very good and an excellent way to kick off a busy day – I can’t believe that jalapenos only occurred to me while writing this 10 hours later.

Good-by old friend.  After this meal, I retired our 8” non-stick skillet which no longer was.  After a couple of years of almost daily use – my egg pan you know – it is now well seasoned as in like a cast iron pan.  It has a nice baked-on layer of grease and is completely smooth  – no texture at all - and it behaves like a cast iron pan, which is not too good for scrambled eggs, for example.

I did this the same day the new 8” and 10” (which we didn’t have) non-sticks showed up.

All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Happy new year to you and Bev too. I hope your new year is filled with much happiness, good health, and delicious food.

    I really hate saying good-bye to pans, but considering how hard the work in my kitchen, they deserve to retire and I know the same is true for yours. Happy new year again.

  2. I hope your new pans live up to the one you're throwing out. Is it even possible to cook eggs in a non-stick? I know I can't do it. Happy New Year to you and clan. I know I don't need to wish you "good food" for 2012, but here's to health and happiness and lots of blogging.

  3. Happy New Year to you and Bev! As much as retiring an old pan, "hurts", it is more painful to hang on to it! LOL

    What is better than starting the new year with a new pan!? It will help you share many more wonderful dishes with us!

  4. Happy New Year to you and Bev, Larry! Hope 2012 is full of love and more good food!!
    Long live the Breakfast King!!!

  5. What a great way to start the new year - new non-stick pans.

    I hope 2012 is kind to you both, Michelle

  6. It's kind of like the decommissioning of a naval vessel, don't you think?

    So I guess your already huge breakfast scrambles will now be 2 inches larger? heh heh

    Happy New Years, to you, Bev, and your family (including the pups).

  7. Happy New Year Larry and Bev!

  8. That is an amazing looking breakfast! I wish I would get myself in gear and start off my day with something good like that.
