    The Ultimate Fried Egg and Bacon Sandwich

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes to 15 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes to 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
    • 8 rashers Waitrose Unsmoked Drycure Rindless Back Bacon
    • 25g butter, softened
    • 4 slices medium sliced white bread
    • Waitrose Spicy Brown Sauce, to taste
    • 2-4 medium Waitrose Organic Columbian Blacktail eggs


    1. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the bacon and cook over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes, turning until crisp. Meanwhile, butter the bread and spread with brown sauce. Drain the bacon on kitchen paper; keep warm.
    2. Increase the heat to medium-high, then break each egg into the pan and leave for about 30 seconds to begin to set. When the white looks almost set, turn the heat down low and using a metal spoon, baste the eggs all over with the fat in the pan. The yolk will cook lightly on top and become opaque. For a more well-done egg, flip over using a palette knife or fish slice and cook for 5-10 seconds.
    3. Divide the bacon between 2 bread slices and drain the eggs on kitchen paper before placing them on top. Season, then cover with the remaining bread and serve.
