Ham & Eggs
When we were creating this photo, we invented a really interesting method of combining the bacon with the egg.
+ Use a pin to prick a small hole in the shell at the large end of the egg.
+ Boil the egg for about 3 ½ minutes – it should still be very soft
+ Put the egg immediately into very cold water for a minute or so, then peel carefully
+ Season the egg with whatever takes your fancy – anything from pepper, sesame seeds to cinnamon goes+ Now wrap the egg completely in ½ mm thin strips of bacon and pack it up as tightly as possible in aluminium foil, twisting the ends to make your egg look like a sweetie. Deep fry in rapeseed oil at about 160°C for 3 to 4 minutes,
then take out and cool.CAUTION the foil is still very hot! Unpack your egg carefully and enjoy. If the yolk is too hard, reduce the time or temperature next time.
… yes, this method is quite time-consuming BUT well worth it!
