Simple, quick and really tasty, this easy-to-prepare American-style brunch makes a naughty but delicious weekend breakfast treat.

Ingredients

  • 12 rashers streaky bacon
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 thick slices of bread (white or brown)
  • 75g (3oz) butter

Method

  • 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.
