    Roast breakfast!

    Primal Fuel
    I thought I'd post this because it jsut occurred to me last night and it's such a great timesaver (forgive me if this is obvious to everyone else, I just get excited when I think I've 'discovered' something )

    Last night I got a couple of strips of pork belly out of the freezer to defrost overnight and have at breakfast. But I was thinking about all the hassle in the morning, and the fact that belly is much better roasted than grilled, and it came to me...

    So I set the oven to come on at 6.30am at 180C, put the frozen belly on a tray with some broccoli and voila! Beautiful roasted pork belly and fatty broc at 7.30, no hassle, and some left over for lunch.

    I can see me doing this a lot. I'm big on roasting. And easy mornings.

    No, it was frozen when it went in, so it would probably take 4-5 hours to defrost. (Besides, I live on the west coast of scotland, so room temperature *is* fridge temperature )

    Well, the inside is frozen most of the night. It's the surface that grows bacteria when thawing at room temp. But if your room temp is 40F/4.5C or less, I bet you have warm jammies

    Yep, and that's about to get zapped by the oven so... perfect!

    Unless it's staph poisoning, which produces toxins. Odorless, not destroyed by cooking.

    Meep. Hmm. Any way around that that could still result in a morning roast?
