Morning Treat

What’s that? Eggy French baguette with bacon, banana, and Maple Syrup, thickly drizzled on top – tempting and toothsome! We think it’s time to share with you one of our most-loved parts of the day – breakfast – here is how we like ours best at Cellardoor.

 Serves 2
 1 baguette
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 eggs (beaten)
Knob of butter
2 rashers of bacon
1 banana (sliced)
Maple syrup (drizzled to taste)

- Cut a good chunk of the baguette (1/4 roughly) and carefully remove the top layer of crust (this is done by thinly slicing it off – make sure you have a sharp bread knife to do this)
- Now cut across lengthways so that you get 2 long and thin slices of bread
- Soak the slices in a bowl with the beaten eggs for 5 minutes (make sure all the bread is covered). Then while your bread slices are soaking, grill the 2 rashers of bacon
- Now heat the knob of butter in a frying pan at a medium temperature 
- Place the slices in the frying pan and pour the leftover egg on top then sprinkle your sesame seeds on top of the slices and let the eggy bread cook until golden (tip: place pan under grill to cook the top of the bread) 
- Lay your eggy bread slices on a plate and layer with the bacon and banana slices and drizzle lots of maple syrup on top. 
- Enjoyed best with fresh orange juice.

This looks delicious... I'll admit I never actually eat breakfast but I might have to start now! x
