Bacon and Eggs with Lashings of Honey and Mustard


Yesterday was cold and snowy in London and today is the same. Looks like it will be either a white or a slushy Christmas.

Even the ducks were cold

So this morning after an early morning walk through the park, M and I were ready for a piping hot cup of tea and a bit of a Sunday bacon and egg treat.

This version was a bit of an experiment for us and it worked brilliantly. While M lashed the bacon with honey, I soft boiled the eggs and made mustard butter to griddle the bread. Honey and Mustard are always a great combo but with bacon and eggs … it’ll make the bacon go super sweet and crispy and you go gooey for more.

So what do you need?

Bacon Rashers

Eggs

Baguette (or alternative)

Wholegrain Mustard

Honey

Butter

Salt and Pepper

So how do you make it like this?

Put a heaped tablespoon of honey in a bowl. Add a tiny little bit of just boiled water to make it a bit runnier. Be careful not to make it too runny. Put the bacon rashers in the bowl and coat thoroughly. Place rashers on a sheet of baking paper and put under the grill until cooked and crispy. Keep an eye on them … with the honey they are easy to burn.

Whilst the bacon cooks soft boil the eggs. The method I use is to boil some water in a small saucepan and carefully place in eggs. Let boil for one minute. Remove from heat. Cover with lid and let sit 6 min.

Mix lots of the wholegrain mustard into a smaller amount of butter so you have a mustard butter. Spread generously over bread. Place on warm griddle if you have one or else under grill with bacon. You want them nice and toasty.

Remove eggs from water when the time has passed and run under cold water. Peel the eggs carefully as they are more delicate when soft boiled.

Layer the honeyed bacon and slice soft-boiled egg on top of the bread. Serve hot.
