Frisée aux Lardons Breakfast Sandwich

24 May: Frisée aux Lardons à la Breakfast Sandwich

Okay, so I love a oozing, drippy breakfast sandwich.  100% totally, hand it over.  But sometimes, I don’t love how greasy they are and how heavy my body feels afterwards. I also love a Frisée aux Lardons salad; the quintessential French bistro salad with bacon, a super sharp, warm vinaigrette…
