COOPER: You know, this is, excuse me, a damn good cup of coffee. I’ve had, I can’t tell you, how many cups of coffee I’ve had in my life and this… is one of the best.
WAITRESS: Thank you.
COOPER: I’d like two eggs, over hard, don’t tell me, I know it’s hard on the arteries but old habits die hard, just about has hard as I like those eggs… bacon, super crispy, almost burned, cremate it. That’s great. I’ll have the grapefruit juice… as long as those grapefruits are freshly squeezed.
TWIN PEAKS, SEASON ONE, EPISODE: TRACES TO NOWHERE
One of my favorite food scenes from the show, Twin Peaks, is from the second episode of the first season when Cooper orders himself breakfast at the diner. His order was quite simple but that fact that he was so specific about how he wanted it prepared was hilarious. He wanted his eggs over hard, which I don’t think I’ve ever had before, and bacon that’s burnt. It doesn’t look like the bacon in the photo is burnt but I cooked it for so long that it actually does have a slight burnt taste. If you don’t like your bacon cooked like that, simply cook it for less time.
This recipe is really meant to be fun. I really don’t intend for you to burn you bacon! Please enjoy.
