MEAT RECIPE

Fried Greens with Smoked Bacon & Eggs

 
 

Along my travels I love stopping off for local produce at roadside stands or farmers markets. I'm always such a sucker for buying extra greens. Some people have told me that eating greens for breakfast feels weird, but to me, they add that missing something to my plate! Bacon + greens. Life is all about balance right?

 
 

Ingredients

Extra virgin olive oil

1/2 a leek, white part only, thinly sliced

Bunch of broccolini

Small handful of green beans, trimmed

5 slices of smoked bacon, roughly torn

4 eggs

Small handful of baby kale

Torn bocconcini (as much as you like)

Salt and freshly-ground black pepper

Feeds 2

HOW TO MAKE IT

Place a medium frying pan on the stove, add a good drizzle of olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add the leek and cook for a few minutes until lightly golden, then add the broccolini and beans and cook for another couple of minutes until they start to crisp up.

Add the bacon and cook for 2 minutes, then crack the eggs into the pan and fry to your liking. Add a little extra oil if needed. Top with the kale and torn bocconcini, and season with salt and pepper.

Pour yourself a coffee and enjoy your breakfast as you watch the sunrise.
