Ingredients

  • 8 maple-cured British streaky bacon rashers, from Waitrose, or any good-quality streaky bacon rashers
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 8 large free-range eggs, 4 lightly beaten, 4 whole
  • 125ml buttermilk
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 3 corn cobs, kernels stripped
  • Oil for frying
  • 2 ripe avocados

Method

  1. Preheat the grill to medium high. Grill the bacon for 5-8 minutes, turning once, until crisp. Set aside and keep warm in a low oven.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Make a hollow in the centre and add the chilli, the 4 beaten eggs and the buttermilk. Stir well to make a batter, then add the spring onions and corn kernels.
  3. Heat a splash of sunflower oil in a non-stick pan over a medium heat. Fry spoonfuls of the mixture for 3-4 minutes, then flip over and cook for 3-4 minutes more until golden and cooked. You may need to fry in batches – keep them warm in a low oven.
  4. Heat a little more oil in the pan if needed, then fry the 4 remaining eggs to your liking. Peel and slice the avocados, then serve with the fritters, topped with the bacon and a fried egg.

delicious. tips

  1. For even fritters, spoon the batter into a crumpet ring in the pan. Once the base has set, remove the ring (you might need 
a spoon or spatula to help release the fritter), then flip the fritter over.

  2. To strip corn cobs, Put a clean tea towel on the work surface, stand each cob on its end in the middle of it and, holding firmly, cut off the kernels with a sharp knife. Use the tea towel to gather the kernels.
