Bacon Bap with Scrambled Eggs and Chilli Jam

Serves 4 

Ingredients

  • 8 rashers
  • Knob butter
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • Butter
  • 4 baps


Tomato Chilli Jam 

  • 1-2 red chillies, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 4 tablesp. vinegar
  • 2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tablesp. brown sugar
  • 2 tablesp. chopped coriander
  • Basil leaves to garnish

To Cook


To make the Tomato Chilli Jam, simply pop the red chillies into a food processor along with the garlic and vinegar and whiz to a purée.  Tip into a saucepan and add the chopped tomatoes and brown sugar.  Simmer gently for an hour, stirring occasionally.  Take off the heat, add the chopped coriander and taste for seasoning.  Allow to cool before storing in the fridge.

To Cook
Grill the rashers until crispy. While they are cooking melt a knob of butter in a saucepan and add the lightly beaten eggs.  Season with salt and pepper and cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time, until the eggs are just set.  Slice and toast the baps. 

Put a spoonful of relish on the bottom half of each bap, divide the scrambled eggs between the four baps, then add the rashers and finally the tops of the baps.

Delicious any time of the day!
