Skill level: Easy peasy
- 6 rashers streaky bacon
- 6 cherry tomatoes on the vine
- 1 large egg
- 1tbsp whole milk
- Salt and ground black pepper
- About 1tsp fresh thyme leaves
- 1 bagel, halved across
- Knob of butter or 1tsp oil
- Heat a frying pan over a medium heat, add the bacon and cook until crispy, adding the tomatoes after a few minutes to brown them a little. You shouldn’t need to add any oil. When cooked, remove them from the pan and keep warm in a low oven. Remove any remaining fat from pan.
- Meanwhile, beat the egg with the milk, seasoning and thyme. Dip the bagel into the mixture, soaking the cut side especially, to use it all up.
- Add butter or oil to pan and, when hot, add bagel halves, cut side down, and cook for a few minutes until browning. Turn over and cook base until almost crispy.
- Serve each person a bagel half with 3 rashers of bacon and 3 tomatoes.
