In essence, this is to create a mouthful of morning goodness in a spoonful, to be effectively used as a mouth amuser.
To prepare, just use the same components for the gourmet breakfast. Make a portion of scrambled eggs enough for 2 persons.
Instead of panchetta, use normal bacon and fry them in a pan to bring out the flavors. Dice them very small so they can fit into a spoon later.
Saute some mushrooms and tomatoes as well. Equally, dice them into very small portions before you put them in the pan. Season them with pepper only as the bacon will have enough of the savoriness for a spoonful!
Finally, make a toast and cut into small square pieces, small enough to fit into the spoon (one piece per spoon). To plate, put the toast first, followed by a teaspoon full of scrambled eggs (garnished with some green onions first if you like), then the mushroom, tomatoes and the bacon right on top.
It should look similar to the picture here, but for this occasion, I did add some leeks to the bacon for extra flavoring. It should taste like breakfast in a mouthful!
