So here is our take on the Observer or was it the guardians recipe.
1pkt Puff pastry ( or you can make your own)
250 g Streaky lean bacon
4 Tomatoes ( or you can use sundried)
Pre heat oven to 200oC,180oF,Gas mark 6
Grill bacon until just slightly crispy
Cut tomatoes into 1/8ths
Mark pastry block into 3rds and cut 2/3rds away and roll out into a rectangle.
Place rectangle onto baking tray ensuring edges are raised all around by about 1cm.
Leave pastry to rest in fridge for about 10mins
Add bacon to pastry covering the base entirely
Add wedges/slices of tomato across the bacon. If you wanted to add peppers olives or onion you could also do this for variation.
Then crack 8 of the eggs and add to top of pastry. The eggs are why we need to ensure we have a raised edge on the pastry base.
Roll out remain 1/3rd of the puff pasty and cut into strips.
Add strips of pastry on top of eggs and bacon to create a Kris-cross pattern.
Use remaining egg to glaze pastry.
Place in oven and cook for approx 20mins. Cooking time tends to vary with ovens and depth of dish or tray used so always check to ensure doesn't end up over or under cooked.
Great served hot or cold with salad or as a picnic dish.
It was delicious give it a try.
