Tried out a new place today! AND LOVED IT! Bagel Love located off on Herschel in the Avondale area of Jacksonville. I passed by it the other day and thought how I’d love to go there and then saw someone post a picture of a bagel from there. I knew that had to mean I was destined to go there 😉 So Lizzie and I had a lunch date at Bagel Love. We came in a little bit later in the day so their bagels weren’t as stocked up as they would be in the morning. The girl behind the counter was super friendly and so helpful. If you read any of my previous posts you know how much customer service means to me. You can have the best food in the world but if you act like I am a bother, I won’t return. That is not the case…

Honestly, doesn’t everything taste much better when it’s wrapped in bacon? I’ve tried some variations of this recipe, and the key to creating this little piece of heaven is the bacon. Now, don’t go to your local grocery store and pick up any of that prepackaged bacon because that will not do this recipe justice. Go to your local meat market or a place that is able to slice your bacon fresh. Make sure to get the apple wood smoked bacon as this just adds so much more flavor of this recipe. If you have the opportunity to get the bacon thick cut, do so! It creates a crust around the egg, and just makes this recipe delicious. This soon will become a staple in your household, as it has in mine.

Preheat the oven to 400F. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. 2. Line the metal baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. 3. Line the 6 thick slices of bacon on the cooking sheet and cook the bacon until they are 2/3 of the way cooked and flexible. 4. Line the muffin pans with the bacon so that it circles each mold. 5.

Sprinkle the cheese on the top of each egg, and cook for an additional 2 minutes until the cheese is melted.

We at Hungry Jax are hearing rumors that Seven Eleven wants to expand into Jacksonville. The two locations they are looking at are downtown at the Magnificat Cafe and Avondale across the street from the Brick (The old gas station that has been vacant). If people remember correctly, Jiffy Huntley Stores and Little Champ ruled Jacksonville 20 years ago. Now it seems that Dailys and Gate now rule the Jacksonville landscape. My how things change over the years. Check back soon for more updates.
