Open Brekkie Sandwich ‘w’ Chef Drew’s Maple Cured Bacon & Black Garlic Emulsion
Brekkie was inspired today by the amazing cured meats I have in the fridge that I had recently purchased from Chef Drew @ Salted & Hung. Remember my birthday lunch blog a week or so ago? So it’s from the fridge along with the bread and eggs, so tis indeed #BillWallaceFriendly as well. So, this maple-cured bacon was sitting there, almost calling to me. Let’s make the kids something special today for brekkie with it. And so was created the Open Brekkie Sandwich ‘w’ Chef Drew’s Maple Cured Bacon & Black Garlic Emulsion. And she was a beauty folks. The kids were so quiet for about 20 minutes with only chewing noises and the occasional oooh and Aaah.
This bacon is off the charts good. When you open the packet and get a waft of the intense smoky maple aroma you just know this is going to be awesome. And fuck me is it ever!!!
Open Brekkie Sandwich ‘w’ Chef Drew’s Maple Cured Bacon & Black Garlic Emulsion – looks pretty good too right?
You will need for 2x sandwich, AKA one per kid;
- 2 eggs
- 4 slices of white bread
- 10 rashers of Chef Drew’s maple-cured bacon (or equivalent)
- A jar of Chef Drew’s black garlic emulsion (you could use mayo – but man so much better ‘w’ this)
- Black truffle oil (any oil. will do)
- Sea salt & cracked black pepper
Here we go, 1, 2, 3;
- Get the bacon on a baking tray and in the oven at 200 – cook this off until just crisping;
- Fry two eggs in the black truffle oil;
- Toast the bread slices and then use a cooking ring to cut them into circles (or cut around a large coffee mug bottom);
- When toasted, butter them with salted butter and then spread over a nice layer of black garlic emulsion on all circles;
- Plating time;
- Lay down one toasted bread circle with black garlic emulsion side up;
- On with the crispy bacon;
- On with the fried egg;
- Season with a little sea salt & cracked black pepper – including Chef sprinkles on the plate if you like;
- Pop the final circle of toasted bread on a jaunty angle, with. black garlic emulsion side down, so you can still see the egg yolk – like in the picture.
