Uitsmyter

(Pronounced outshmiter).

On Friday lunch time our Dutch friends showed me how to make this dish for a quick lunch.   I find it really strange that although our two countries are separated by only a short stretch of water, our diets seem to be completely different.
 The finished dish is really little different from our bacon and egg, but it makes a complete change and is interesting.   Try it sometime:
Lay a slice of bread on to each plate ready to receive the finished dish.   Lay one or two rashers of bacon (or ham,) per person into the bottom of a frying pan, break an egg on to each rasher and then cover it with a thick layer of grated cheese.   Cook over a medium heat shaking the pan regularly to keep the rashers separate.   When cooked (about five minutes) take each one out of the pan carefully, using a fish slice, and lay it on top of the bread.   Eat!  Enjoy!

I love Dutch food. They make amazing little pancakes called poffertjes (or something like that) and they are really sweet and buttery. Mmmmmm.

Will give that a try. A different way to serve a light lunch. Using Sainsbury's "cooking" bacon of course!

I'm surprised it all cooks sufficiently but I suppose 5 minutes is plenty of time. It sounds intriguing so I shall have to try it.

This sounds so good.
I make something like this for breakfast too. The trick is to cover the the pan.
So yummy.

That sounds like a lovely dish for us live- aloners. And I will remember to cover the pan!

I'm about to have egg and bacon for my breakfast in about 2 hours (special treat), but I think I'll just stick to my old ways. The addition of cheese sounds a bit rich.

That sounds absolutely delish -- though I would be very tempted to toast the bread!

It is surprising how quickly it actually cooks - I think the trick is to get the pan nice and hot before you put the bacon in. Thanks for the visit.
