Ingredients Needed (Serves 4)

  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 rashers of rindless bacon
  • 4 tablespoons of tomato chutney
  • 4 tortillas
  • ½ cup of cheese (preferrably mozarella)

Method

Using a large frying pan, place half of the olive oil on high. Cook the rindless bacon for 4-5 minutes until it’s crisp on both sides, before removing it from the pan and setting it aside. Give the frying pan a good wipe.
Reduce the heat of your gas cooker to medium, before pouring the remainder of your oil into it. Now fry your eggs for 2-3 minutes until the egg whites have set.
Take a single tablespoon of tomato chutney and spread it down the centre of each tortilla, before adding ¼ of the mozarella cheese, a slice of rindless bacon and an egg. Roll up the tortilla and repeat the procedure using your remaining ingredients.
Place the tortilla wraps back into the pan and cook each side for 1-2 minutes, until it is warm enough and the cheese has melted.
