In my first attempt to make skillygallee, I forgot to soak the hardtack... I just crumbled it into the hot grease. A little crunchy, but not too bad.
The second time, I made it the same way, except that I cracked two eggs over it and stirred it all together with a pinch of salt and pepper, and let it soak for a while before cooking. A hardtack and bacon omelette!
