for the pesto

  • 100 g blanched almonds
  • 80 g basil leaves stems removed
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • 1/2 - 1 chilli roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino cheese

to serve

  • streaky bacon cooked to your preference
  • 2 eggs fried
  • 2 bread rolls
  • fresh watercress


  • 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.
  • To assemble the rolls, place some fresh watercress on the rolls followed by the cooked bacon, fried eggs and finally some of the pesto.
  • Serve immediately.
