Whilst visually appealing and swift and east to prepare, Its no potnoodle is it.

This is all very good for all you professional/semi proffesional Chefs out there. However, not so good, for us normal folk that don't have all these fancy ingredients and cooking equipment immediately to hand.

Outstanding recipe that tastes just like the restaurant version. Top marks!

I don't quite understand! What part of this is edible? Does one tuck into the bay leaf only, or is all of it to be consumed? It seems rather a lot for a whole meal.

This is a fabulous combination of sour and salt. Everyone should take time mastering this delightful experience in the kitchen. The variations are endless, however in time you'll realise the best is where you started. I commend this recipe and vote that it becomes recognised as a top 5 British Breakfast of all time.

What rubbish is this? Any true Marmite lover knows that if you can still see the toast, there is not enough Marmite on the it. The toast in the picture is near naked.

My findings: *Check you toaster is empty before using it. I found a mouse in mine. Sadly it was after I'd used it so mousey is no more *If you don't have bay leaves don't try using any old leaf from your garden. Dandelions in particular don't work * PVA glue mixed with gravy do NOT make a good substitute if you don't have any marmite. It may look delicious but it won't be P.S. Something I DID learn from this recipe is that if you swallow dangerous chemicals like glue, go to a hospital. Do not try to pump your own stomach out using a vacuum cleaner and soap.

Can anyone tell me if these measurements are imperial or metric???? I hate it when they assume things in these recipes- we're not all masterchefs you know!!!
