This breakfast meal is based on my friend's Bacon Hangover Cure recipe. It's easy and quick to prepare and very popular in my house, almost as much as my Brussels Sprout & Bacon Hash :-) It's also great when served on top of a slice of toasted Low-carb "Rye" Bread!
It's definitely one of the healthy options for my 30-Day Clean Eating Challenge. If you follow my challenge to get fit for summer, just avoid the "rye" bread and use coconut milk instead of cream.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):
- 10-14 slices bacon, roughly sliced (210g / 7.4 oz)
- 4 cups white mushrooms, sliced (280g / 9.9 oz)
- fresh juice from ½ medium orange (optional, carbs reduced to 4.9 grams if not used)
- 1 tbsp fresh orange zest (~ ¼ orange) - make sure you use organic oranges
- 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- ¼ cup heavy whipping cream or coconut milk for dairy-free. I love Aroy-D coconut milk (60 ml / 2 fl oz)
- 1 tbsp ghee, butter or coconut oil
- pinch salt (I use pink Himalayan)
Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives). If you are worried about nitrates in bacon, have a look at my post Bacon: Is it Really Unhealthy?
- Slice the mushrooms and roughly chop the bacon. I used organic bacon with high fat content.
- Juice and zest the orange and keep aside for later.
- Grease a medium skillet with ghee, butter or coconut oil and add roughly chopped bacon. Cook until slightly browned from all sides.
- Add the mushrooms, mix well and cook for about 5 minutes.
- Add the orange zest and stir in well.
- Add mustard, orange juice and cream (or coconut milk) and cook until the sauce thickens. Make sure you keep stirring to avoid sticking.
- Take off the heat, place on a serving plate and enjoy!
Unless you follow my 30-Day Clean Eating Challenge, you can serve it on top of toasted Low-carb "Rye" Bread!
