Bacon & Egg rolls with pesto

Today, I won’t be giving you a lengthy post abut how fabulous this dish is. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Just imagine a soft, oozy egg on top of crisp, salty bacon in a soft roll flavoured with chilli, basil & almond pesto. Simple and perfect.

Recipe type: Breakfast, Main,
Serves: 2
Ingredients
for the pesto
  • 100g blanched almonds
  • 80g basil leaves, stems removed
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • ½ - 1 chilli, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup grated Pecorino cheese
to serve
  • streaky bacon, cooked to your preference
  • 2 eggs, fried
  • 2 bread rolls
  • fresh watercress
Instructions
  1. To make the pesto, combine all the ingredients except for the oil in a food processor and process until everything is finely chopped. With the blade running, slowly pour in the oil until you reach the desired consistency. I like a thicker pesto.
  2. To assemble the rolls, place some fresh watercress on the rolls followed by the cooked bacon, fried eggs and finally some of the pesto.
  3. Serve immediately.
