Serves 1

Egg 1, beaten
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Wholemeal bread 1 slice
Vegetable oil 2 tbsp
Lean trimmed back bacon 2 rashers, de-rinded
Field mushroom 1, wiped, peeled and sliced
Tomato 1, thickly sliced
Snipped chives to garnish

1 Beat the egg with 2 tablespoons of water and some seasoning and then pour onto a plate. Dip the bread on both sides in the egg, allowing it to soak up all the mixture.

2 Melt the butter with the oil in a frying pan until bubbling, then cook the bread for 2–3 minutes on each side until lightly golden and set. Drain well, reserving the pan juices, and keep warm.

3 Add the bacon to the pan and cook for 3–4 minutes on each side until cooked through and lightly golden. Drain well, reserving the pan juices, and keep warm.

4 Add the sliced mushroom and tomato to the pan and cook, turning occasionally, for about 5 minutes until cooked through and tender.

5 To serve, place the eggy bread on to a warm serving plate and top with the bacon, tomato, mushrooms and snipped chives. Eat immediately.

Cook’s Tip
If preferred, replace the bacon with pork sausages or a vegetarian variety for a tasty veggie version.
