Simple, quick and really tasty, this easy-to-prepare American-style brunch makes a naughty but delicious weekend breakfast treat.
- 12 rashers streaky bacon
- 3 eggs
- 3 thick slices of bread (white or brown)
- 75g (3oz) butter
For a veggie alternative, top the toast with lightly-grilled slices of pineapple or fresh blueberries instead.
- Grill the bacon until crisp and keep warm. Lightly whisk three eggs, season and put in a shallow dish.
- Dip bread slices in the egg and press gently to help it absorb. Heat the butter in a pan and fry the bread for 2 mins on each side until golden brown.
- Cut each slice of bread into two triangles and top each with two slices of bacon and a good drizzle of maple syrup.
