  • 125g packet smoked bacon lardons
  • 80g breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp melted butter

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 free range eggs
  • A pinch of smoked paprika

Method

1. Set the oven to 185 degrees.

3. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, turning once or twice until they are golden and crisp.
4. Heat the olive oil over a medium heat in a non-stick pan then crack in the eggs. Season then sprinkle over the smoked paprika. Cook for two minutes then pierce the egg yolks with the tip of a knife and swirl around the pan.
