Nutritional values

Here, the eggs provide a strong portion of carotenoids, which the body converts into vitamin A. By the way: eggs from organic farming not only taste better most of the time - they also contain more vitamin E than those of conventional origin.

The slow frying in the pan not only makes the bacon deliciously crispy, but also saves unwanted fat. In addition, the spicy bacon becomes even crispier and leaner when thoroughly drained on kitchen paper.
