Serving Size: 2

Just imagine a soft, oozy egg on top of crisp, salty bacon in a soft roll flavoured with chilli, basil & almond pesto. Simple and perfect.


  • 3.5 Ounce blanched almonds
  • 0.5 cup grated Pecorino cheese
  • 0.5 cup olive oil
  • 1 chili, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 2.875 Ounce basil leaf, stem removed
  1. To make the pesto, combine all the ingredients except for the oil in a food processor and process until everything is finely chopped. With the blade running, slowly pour in the oil until you reach the desired consistency. I like a thicker pesto.
  2. To assemble the rolls, place some fresh watercress on the rolls followed by the cooked bacon, fried eggs and finally some of the pesto.
  3. Serve immediately.
