Bacon and egg bunny chow

Bacon and eggs like you've never tasted them before, not just a breakfast meal.

Preparation time : 5 min Cooking time : 20 min Servings : 1
Ingredients
  • fresh crusty bread rolls
  • cubed bacon (or a smoked meat of your choice)
  • grated parmesan
  • grated pecorino cheese
  • thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a sprinkle of smoked paprika or cayenne pepper
  • eggs
Method
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C. Cut the top off and hollow out each bread roll. Place a few sprigs of thyme and some parmesan cheese in the bottom of each hollow bread roll.

Fry some cubes of bacon until crispy on the edges. Break an egg or two into the roll (if you have big rolls you can break 2 in). Top each egg with some cubes of meat and some grated cheese
Season with salt, pepper, some smoked paprika or chilli and some thyme or rosemary and pop them onto a tray into the oven until they have crisped up nicely and the cheese on top has melted.

You can adjust the filling to suit your taste; here are a few delicious combinations.
 
Eggs, cheese, chilli, basil or coriander
Eggs, fried mushrooms, cheese
Eggs, salmon, cream cheese, black pepper, herbs
Eggs, bolognaise pasta sauce and cheese
