Start your day in the right way with this simple breakfast recipe of avocado, streaky bacon and fried egg.


  • 4-6 British free-range streaky bacon rashers
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • Roughly chopped fresh mint or coriander
  • Juice of ½-1 lime
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 2 slices of good, chewy bread
  • Butter to spread


  1. Heat the oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan/gas 7. Lay the bacon rashers on a foil-lined baking tray and cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes, turning once, until crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, halve, stone and roughly mash the avocado. Stir in the red chilli, chopped mint or coriander and the lime juice to taste, into the mashed avocado. Season generously with salt and a little pepper.
  3. Fry the eggs to your liking in a drizzle of vegetable oil and toast the bread, then spread with butter. Divide the avocado mixture between the toast slices, then top with the bacon and a fried egg each. Serve immediately, while the butter is still oozing from beneath the avocado.
