  • Fry Pan & Tongs
  • Sharp Knife & Chopping Board
  • Medium Bowl & Fork (for smashing avocado)


  • 2 Bagels
  • 1x 8oz/225g block of Halloumidivided into 6
  • 4 rashers of Bacon
  • 2 small Avocados, peeled & stoned
  • 2 heaped tsp Chilli Jam
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • squeeze of Fresh Lemon Juice, to taste
  • drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Fresh Chives, to garnish


  • Begin by lightly smashing your avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and pinch of 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 4 rashers of bacon over medium heat until desired crispiness, then fry 6 slices of halloumi in the bacon fat until golden both sides.
  • Keep heat on a medium and melt 1 tsp butter in the pan. Place the top bagel in the pan and crack an egg in the centre. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Leave to fry for a few mins until the egg begins turning white, then pop under the grill and broil 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) Pan Temperature - Make sure the pan temperature is at medium when you crack the egg in. If it's too low the egg will seep from underneath the bagel and if it's too high it will burn before you've cooked the top.
c) Calories - Based on using 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Per bagel:
