Serves 2-4

250 g bacon

6 eggs, whisked

salt and freshly ground black pepper

oil for frying

6 thick slices white bread or 1 small French loaf, sliced

60 ml pesto

150 g Cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

Heat a pan and fry the bacon until cooked and crisp.

Remove from the pan and set aside.

Use the same pan for the eggs.

Whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl and season with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Heat a little of the oil in the pan.

Dip a slice of bread in the whisked eggs.

Fry the bread on both sides until done and golden.

Once all the bread slices have been fried arrange them on a greased baking sheet and evenly divide the bacon among them.

Spoon a little of the pesto on top of the bacon and scatter the cheese on top.

Bake for about 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Serve with a salad.

Tip: If you like sweet accompaniments serve the dish with a little syrup.
