Eggy Bread, Smoked Bacon & Tomatoes


Ludlow Food Centre has just won an award for their smoked bacon, so I picked some up yesterday to give it a try for our breakfast this morning.

I decided the perfect accompaniment would be eggy bread and some lovely red ripe tomatoes.

For eggy bread you need bread that is a few days old as if it's too soft it will fall to pieces.


4 thick slices of white bread ( 2-3 days old )
3 large free range eggs
2 tablespoons of milk
salt & pepper
smoked bacon

Preheat the grill.

Put the bacon and tomatoes on the grill pan. Season the tomatoes with sea salt, black pepper & olive oil. A few thyme or Greek Basil leaves really lift the tomatoes if you have them.

Whisk the eggs well, add the milk and season with salt & pepper. Put the bread into the egg mixture and leave to soak for a couple of minutes on each side.

Put the bacon and tomatoes onto grill to your liking.

Heat a tablespoon of butter and a drop of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Once the butter is melted and beginning to fom, add the eggy bread and fry for a minute or so on each side till golden brown & crispy
