Chicken Fried Bacon aka “bacon porn”

Chicken Fried Bacon - Frank Sodolak's Country Inn - Snook, TX

The idea of this totally fascinates me.  Completely, totally unhealthy, of course, but it looks awesome!  Would I make this, probably not, but I would love to taste it, just once.  ~ jan

1 lb thick sliced bacon, cut in half
1 egg
1/2 cup milk (or cream or half & half)
1/2 cup flour
spices (optional)

CREAM GRAVY

3 tablespoons drippings or butter
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons heavy cream (whipping)
salt and pepper, heavy on the pepper

Directions

1. Heat oil in a frying pan over med-high heat.
2. Whisk egg and milk together in a bowl.
3. Place flour in another bowl - season it if you'd like (garlic, pepper, salt, lemon, cajun, etc.).
4. Double dip - first in the egg mixture, then into the flour and repeat.
