Mr Haskell’s pro tip: “For lower fat, use lean bacon rather than streaky.”

Serves: 1

  • 2 slices of streaky bacon
  • 4 slices of pickled jalapeno chilli, or 1/2 a fresh green chilli, freshly chopped
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 50g cooked butter beans
  • salt and pepper

Preheat the grill to high. Place the bacon on a tray and cook under the grill for seven to eight minutes, or until cooked through. Allow it to cool before slicing into strips, half a centimetre thick, and set aside. Stir in the jalapeno chilli.

Crack the eggs into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs well. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add the butter. Pour the eggs into the pan and cook the omelette for two minutes or until it has started to set on the bottom. Now sprinkle the bacon and jalapeno over the omelette and top with the butter beans. Pop under the grill for 30 seconds. Turn out onto a plate and serve immediately.
