LEKKER: Bacon and egg in a heart


  • Ingredients
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. chopped parsley


Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Cut each strip of bacon into 5-inch pieces then fold in half lengthwise. 

Take two folded strips and shape them into a heart. 

Place on a baking sheet and bake until crispy, about 12-15 minutes. 

Place each crispy bacon heart over the bread and cut out a heart shape from the bread.

Melt butter in a large ovenproof pan over medium heat. 

Add the bread and toast until golden on one side. 

Flip the bread and add bacon hearts to the centre of each piece of bread. 

Crack eggs into the centres of the bacon hearts. 

Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper.
