One of my most favorite flavor affinities is cured bacon and sweet onion, caramelized together. I like to have this duo on creamy scrambled eggs occasionally. I have even been known to put a smear of cream cheese between the eggs and topping for a slight variation. :) Delicious both ways really! Like them equally. I am not so fond of mixing up my ingredients INTO the eggs, as that weakens their flavor punch greatly for me as well as altering the flavor of the eggs themselves. This simple egg breakfast is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets and Paleo-Primal as well! Hope you like this as much as I do!

4 slices bacon, chopped
2 oz. red onion, chopped (any onion will do, but red is best here)
4 large eggs, beaten
2 T. butter
DIRECTIONS: Fry the bacon until it is getting nearly crisp. Add the onion and saute until the onion is pretty tender. When done, lower heat. In a separate non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the eggs and scramble as usual. When done, plate half the eggs on each of two plates. With a slotted spoon, dip up half the bacon/onion mixture over each. Garnish with chopped parsley or herb of your choosing. Serve at once.
