Anthony Gray at High Cotton creates a sublime bacon and eggs appetizer: fresh pork belly topped with a fried farmer’s egg accompanied by a bed of red peas with pepper relish. It’s a great way to win converts to adventurous eating. One bite is all it takes. The tender, velvety pork is sinfully luxurious, and the added richness from the fresh golden-yolked egg pushes it over the top. These bacon and eggs are so crazy good they may singlehandedly ensure the future popularity of pork belly.
