RELATED: How To Poach The Perfect Egg

Serves 2


2 portobello mushrooms

6 cherry tomatoes

4 eggs

6 rashers bacon (with fat cut off)

2 slices of wholemeal bread

White wine vinegar

Salt and pepper

Olive oil


  1. Cut and clean the mushrooms, then lay them flat on a lined tray. Drizzle with herbs, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Lay the cherry tomatoes next to the mushrooms, then finally the bacon. Brush with a little olive oil and cook for 5 minutes or until crispy. You might want to cook the bread in the grill since it gives it an extra crunch.
  3. Poach the eggs by cracking each into a cup, then dropping them into a boiling pot of water. Cook for 5 minutes with the lid on, then remove and set aside.
  4. To serve, season the eggs with some chilli flakes and cracked black pepper.
