What You’ll Use:
Cooked bacon ends,
Sliced red onion,
Apple cider vinaigrette, and
Salt and freshly ground pepper.
Re-heat Instructions: Fill a heat-proof bowl with hot water, lower 4 eggs into the water and let them warm up. Trim the frisée, wash and pat dry, and tear into bite-size pieces so you have about 4 cups. Chop the rest of the chives. Wrap the remaining bacon ends in a couple of paper towels and microwave until warmed through, about 20 seconds. In a large bowl, combine the frisée and a handful of sliced red onions. Drizzle with about ⅓ cup of the vinaigrette, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Peel and halve the eggs. Pile the salad on plates, plop 4 egg halves on top of each salad, and scatter the bacon over everything. Shower with the chopped chives, grind with more pepper, and serve.

Bring a pot of water to a simmer. Gently add 6 eggs and cook until done to your liking, 6 minutes for soft-boiled, 8 minutes for hard-boiled. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggs into a bowl of cold water. Drain the eggs, transfer to a container, and refrigerate.
Roughly chop any larger pieces of bacon, if necessary. Warm a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the bacon and fry until browned and crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate, reserving 2 tablespoons bacon fat. Transfer half of the bacon to an airtight container and refrigerate.
To prep the mushroom crêpes, chop 3 or 4 cloves of garlic. Slice the red onion. Transfer half of the red onion to an airtight container and refrigerate.
In the same pan you used to cook the bacon, over medium-low heat, warm the reserved bacon fat. Add the mushrooms to the pan and sauté until they release their moisture and start to brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Add the remaining sliced onion, along with half of the garlic, and stir until fragrant, 1 minute. (Reserve the remaining garlic for the dill crème fraîche.) Stir in ¼ cup broth, wine, or water, and a few sprigs of thyme, and simmer until the liquid has mostly reduced, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and discard the thyme sprigs. Stir in the remaining bacon. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let cool, then transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate.
To prep the smoked salmon crêpes, pick the dill, toss the stems, and chop the fronds. In a small bowl, stir together the crème fraîche, remaining chopped garlic, juice of ½ lemon, and the chopped dill. Season with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate. Slice the remaining lemon half into wedges, transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate.
