Method

1. Pre-heat your oven to 185 degrees

2. Turn your hob onto a medium heat and start by putting a generous amount of vegetable oil into your pan

3. Begin to fry the bacon bits off until they’re a little crispy – remember the fat is important for flavour!

4. Next, chop up your bread, scotch egg, chilli, black pudding and mushrooms – or whatever random ingredients you’re using

5. Once the bacon’s crispy, take it out of the pan and put it into a separate bowl – try to keep the fat and flavours in the pan

6. Now it’s time to start frying your bread until it starts to turn crispy and brown – not burnt! – and then add the bread into the same bowl as the bacon

7. Do the same as above with the Black Pudding

8. Whisk up the eggs in a separate bowl, throwing in a pinch of salt and pepper

9. Meanwhile, add the chopped mushrooms to the pan along with a knob of butter

10. Once the mushrooms start to brown, add the chopped tomatoes, the chilli and the scotch egg all into the pan together.

“My fridge is pretty much the same as yours.”
