Ingredients

  • 2 X Brioche Burger Buns
  • 50ml Olive Oil 
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste 

Equipment : Baking Tray 

  1. Heat the oven to 200’c 
  2. Tear the brioche buns into chunks (3 - 5 cm or so) Tip the chunks into the baking tray. Drizzle over the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Give the tray a good shake so the bread is coated. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until crisp and golden. 
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. 

Serves 1 as a main, 2 as a side.

Ingredients

  • 1 X Little Gem Lettuce 
  • Brioche croutons (see recipe above) - handful pp 
  • 100g baby plum tomatoes 
  • 2 x slices of cheddar cheese
  • ½ red onion 
  • 2 x rashes of bacon 
  • 1 Egg
  • 10g mayo
  • 5ml olive oil 
  • Juice of 1 lemon 
  1. Bring a saucepan of water to boil and boil the egg over a medium heat for 7 minutes to hard boil. Remove from the water using a slotted spoon and place in a bowl of cold water (this stops the egg cooking more and prevents the egg from going gross and grey) 
  2. Remove the egg from the cold water and tap all over with a teaspoon to crack the shell. Use the teaspoon to remove the shell by scooping the egg away from the shell, it should come away very easily. Slice the egg into ¼.
  3. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the bacon until hot and crispy. Carefully remove from the pan and set aside on a plate with some kitchen paper to remove any excess grease and slice into strips. 
  4. Mix together the mayonnaise, olive oil and lemon juice. Loosen with a little water to make a lovely dressing and season to taste. 
  5. Slice up the tomatoes, slice the egg into 1/4 , chop the bacon up, slice up the lettuce and tear up the cheddar slices. Toss these all together with the croutons. Drizzle over the dressing, season to taste and dig in.
