  • 3 Slices of Smoked Streaky Bacon
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 heaped tbsp Fresh Chives, Chopped

Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C and line your baking tray/sheet with a silicone baking mat or baking paper.

While the oven is preheating, line another small tray in foil & lay on your streaky bacon. Place into the oven (don’t worry that it’s not up to temperature) and bake until crispy, turning once halfway through the cooking time – around 15-20 minutes.

When the bacon is cooked, soak up any excess grease with kitchen roll then chop into small pieces. Set to one side until needed.

Separate the eggs – put the egg whites into the large bowl and the yolks into separate small glasses.

Then whisk the egg whites until very thick & almost shiny. Stiff peaks will form and hold their shape well.

Next, tip in the chopped bacon, chives, parmesan and a pinch of pepper to season. Carefully fold with a spatula, being careful not to knock out any of the air, until the ingredients are just incorporated.

Spoon the mixture out onto your prepared baking sheet into two mounds.

Make a small dip in the middle of each one, then carefully slide the egg yolks back into their rightful place.

Finally, bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes until cooked through & light golden on top.

I’m always looking for new ways to cook eggs & this is probably one of my favourites. It’s a sure fire way to make a boring breakfast way more exciting and it tastes bloomin’ epic! You could just as easily have them plain without any fillings and enjoy as you would a fried egg. Alternatively, you could kick it up a notch and throw some chilli flakes into the mix. The choice is entirely yours…

I like runny yolks...I wonder if this yoke would be baked hard after 7-8 mins?

Hi Leanne. I guess it depends on your oven (one oven acts slightly different to another!) You could always try adding the yolk later on in the cooking time if you'd prefer? Emma x
