Absolutely delicious. We didn't have any bread, so improvised with tortilla wraps. Wife doesn't like chutney so we replaced that with Sriracha sauce. Really lifted the whole recipe. Trying to be a bit more health conscious these days, so next time will probably try chicken in place of the bacon.

So simple, yet delicious!

Used toasted muffins instead of bread (using up things) and added cheese on top of bacon. Got a resounding thumbs up! my 15 year old stepson says they should make them down the railway (he volunteers at a steam rlwy) and that is the highest accolade he can bestow!

Oh my word..! I did this without the chutney, though, and added a touch of chilli powder and dried herbs to the bacon once it had cooked to add some interest to the bacon itself. Sunday morning rescue - hurrah! :)
