    No, I'm afraid.
    The English use of the gerund (in this case 'eating bacon and eggs', I guess) has to be realised with an expletive'es' and the infinitive with 'zu':

    Ich vermisse es, Speck und Eier zu essen.

    Other examples:

    Ich liebe es, Rührei zu verspeisen.
    Ich hasse es, Fleisch zu essen.

    I hope you get the idea.
