  • 2 Bagels
  • 4 rashers of Bacon
  • 2 small Avocados, peeled & destoned
  • 2 tsp Chilli Jam
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 block Halloumi, divided into 6
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • Lemon Juice, to taste
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Chives, to garnish


  • Begin by lightly smashing your avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and salt & pepper to taste. Place to one side.
  • Slice your bagels in half so you have a 'top' and 'base' slice. Toast your base slice either under the grill or in the toaster. Slice a hole large enough to fit an egg in the top half. Place both to one side.
  • Fry your bacon until desired crispiness, then fry your halloumi in the bacon fat until golden both sides.
  • Melt your butter in the pan, place the top bagel in the pan and crack an egg in the centre. Leave to fry for a few mins, then pop under the grill until just cooked throughout.
  • Stack in the following order: base bagel, smashed avo, bacon, halloumi, chilli jam, top bagel with egg. Garnish will a sprinkle of finely diced chives.



a) Chilli Jam Sub - Chilli jam is in the recipe to balance out the saltiness of the bacon & halloumi with a touch of sweetness and spice. You can find chilli jam (or something similar) in most regular grocery stores. If you can't just sub something sweet like caramelized onions or a chutney of some sort. Then add a touch of chilli flakes if desired.
b) Calories - Based on using 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil.
