Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • I love the smells of breakfast. If the smell of coffee and bacon doesn't wake your family and friends from a deep sleep and send them straight to the kitchen, I don't know what will!

  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees F.

  • In a small bowl, add the cayenne, garlic powder, dark brown sugar, black pepper and curry powder and stir to blend. Spread the spice mix on a baking sheet and put it in the oven for 2 minutes. Meanwhile, separate the bacon slices. Remove the pan from the oven and put the bacon slices, in a single layer, on the spice mix. Turn them over to lightly coat both sides of each slice with the spice mix.

  • Arrange the bacon in 2 large skillets and cook over medium heat until golden brown. Note: because of the brown sugar, the bacon is more prone to burning, especially if cooked too quickly over high heat. As the bacon is cooked, use a slotted spoon or spatula to transfer the strips to a paper towel to drain. Drain off any excess grease from the skillets but leave a small layer in each pan.

  • Raise the temperature of the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and put it in the center of the oven. When the bread is toasted, remove from the oven and set aside.

  • Return the skillets to the stove over medium-low heat and crack 2 eggs into each skillet. Do not overcrowd. Season them lightly with salt. Cook until desired doneness. Transfer the eggs to a platter and arrange the bacon and the toast around the eggs. Serve immediately.
