Ingredients

 
  • fresh crusty bread rolls

Method

 
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.
Cut the top off and hollow out each bread roll
Place a few sprigs of thyme and some parmesan cheese in the bottom of each hollow bread roll.
Fry some cubes of bacon until crispy on the edges.
Break an egg or two into the roll (if you have big rolls you can break 2 in)
Top each egg with some cubes of meat and some grated cheese
Season with salt, pepper, some smoked paprika or chilli and some thyme or rosemary and pop them onto a tray into the oven until they have crisped up nicely and the cheese on top has melted.

You can adjust the filling to suit your taste; here are a few delicious combinations.
 
Eggs, cheese, chilli, basil or coriander
Eggs, fried mushrooms, cheese
Eggs, salmon, cream cheese, black pepper, herbs
Eggs, bolognaise pasta sauce and cheese
Eggs, salmon, avo, mascarpone, caviar (don’t put the caviar into the oven – use only as a topping)
Eggs, cherry tomatoes, cheese, chilli, pancetta, basil

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
