My love of all things Ron Swanson and Crom are well documented. It seems almost obvious now that the two should meet, make sweet nerd love and give birth to the most brilliant idea ever. Yes, I said it. THE MOST BRILLIANT IDEA EVER.

Drink that in for a moment. Brilliant, right? Okay, now that you’ve basked in the geeky glow that is THE MOST BRILLIANT IDEA EVER, let me tell you how this idea was born.

On a ridiculously average day of the week the founders of this here Nerdery Public gathered for good eats. I mean, really good eats. If you live in Athens, GA or come here at all, there is a local Italian restaurant called DePalmas that is fucking spectacular – but I digress. We sat at a large table drinking the house red, noming on meatball and onion breadsticks, and talking about our week. As per usual, mine was the loudest voice at the table and as we discussed our dinner orders, (I had the Pasta DePalma – fettucini alfredo with grilled chicken, prosciutto and peas, EXTRA peas – don’t judge me) I was lamenting over my love for all things Ron Swanson. As the talk from one end of the table merged with the talk from the other end of the table Crom was brought up.

I don’t know how, I don’t know why, I don’t presume to understand the ways of Crom.

At any rate, as we sat, laughing at my unhealthy obsessions with these two paradigms of awesomeness, Amy Winston says, “Nerdery needs a God-like presence… like Crom Swanson… the God of Breakfast Foods and Mustaches”. As the rest of the table turned their attention to me, my excitement sucked the air from the room and exploded in a thunderous SQUEE! And, from this squee, all things Crom Swanson was born. Brought forth into this nerd world demanding meade, steak, facial hair, steel and all the eggs you have. This, is the power of The Nerdery Public and good food.

Step 5. Follow the rising instructions on your dough
Step 6. Top your breakfast bread with the remaining cheese and bacon
Step 7. Follow the cooking instructions for your dough (since the bacon is already cooked - you’re just cooking the dough thoroughly and heating the bacon and eggs and melting the cheese)
