The weekend only truly begins after bacon. Ditch your usual fry-up for this healthier twist and you’ll have more of your allowance left for a big night out

Ingredients

Bacon medallions, raw

8 rasher(s), smoked

Cherry Tomatoes

250 g

Olive Oil

½ teaspoons

Salt

1 pinch

Crumpet(s)

4 individual

Basil, fresh

5 leaf/leaves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas mark 5. Press the bacon medallions between two baking sheets to keep them flat and cook on the top shelf of the oven for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, put the tomatoes on a baking tray, drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. When the bacon medallions have been cooking for 5 minutes, put the tomatoes in the oven for 10 minutes to roast.
  3. Pat the bacon dry on kitchen paper and tear into pieces, then roughly crush the tomatoes.
  4. Serve the toasted crumpets topped with the tomatoes and bacon, seasoned with freshly ground black pepper and garnished with the basil leaves.

Notes

The basil gives this a fresh Italian-style flavour, but you could serve it with any herbs you like, go wild!
