• A high-protein breakfast with egg and bacon could reduce snacking during the day. (Supplied)

Think of this as the all-day burger. It's just at home as breakfast, brunch - or recovery food - as it is as a super-easy dinner.

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Cut 8 slices of bacon. Place in a frying pan over medium heat and cook, turning, for 3 minutes or until cooked to your liking (see Note). Keep warm. Halve 4 brioche buns and toast until lightly golden. Place a slice of cheddar on the base of each bun and cook under a preheated grill until just melted. Meanwhile, fry 4 eggs to your liking. Place an egg on each base, then top with bacon and homemade HP sauce. Top with remaining bun halves and serve immediately.



• As our home-cured bacon has no added preservatives, it will lose some of its deep red colour when cooked, but this is more than made up for with its rich, porky flavour.
