Bacon and Tomato Hash

So yesterday, I am sitting around (relaxing) and watching reruns on Food Network. By now, you all should know I have some serious love for Nigella Lawson. I saw her make this recipe and the second the show ended, I went to my kitchen and made it too. The best part about watching Nigella make it? She was wearing a fabulous party dress the entire time. I was wearing pajamas. Oh well. This is a seriously simple and yet AMAZING recipe. I inhaled it in about 2 minutes. Nigella served hers with sriracha, but I didn't have any on hand so I just used chili garlic sauce which kicked it up so much, I couldn't get enough. I'm heading up to San Francisco for Slow Food Nation today for the morning Taste Pavilions. I was going to try my hand at live blogging from my Blackberry, but it's so old I don't want it to break. I have my digital camera and when I get back tonight I will be ready to share my pics and hopefully have some good stories for you!!

Bacon and Tomato Hash
(Adapted from Nigella Lawson)

2 slices center cut bacon, chopped
1 small Roma tomato, chopped
Handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic-infused oil (I used grape seed oil)
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (I forgot this and it was fine)
Small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
Bread for serving (optional)
Srircha or chili garlic sauce for serving (optional)

Heat the oil in a medium skillet. When the oil is hot, add bacon and cook until crispy. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on a towel.

Add the tomatoes to the bacon fat and oil (stand back!) and cook until warmed through. Add the Worcestershire and toss to combine. Add the bacon back to the skillet and mix with the tomato before transferring to a plate. Serve with hot sauce and bread if desired.

Oh my goodness I saw that same show. I thought how easy is that to make, but yet so tasty. I loved when she took the bread and just soaked up the bacon grease. Girl knows how to eat for sure.
I love this, you did a wonderful job.

Looks delicious. I just happen to have some bacon & tomatoes. Now I have got to try it.

How was the Taste Pavilion? I was there on Saturday evening and took a whole ton of pictures.

That's so easy! How can something so good-looking be so simple (which is what I think about David Beckham, too)?

That does sound tasty! Bacon and tomatoes are such a great combo of flavours.
