Ok well not exactly green eggs and ham, but this is my take! It is a super simple recipe, perfect for when you have guests for breakfast!
I made this recipe for the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Campaign.
Green Eggs and Ham
12 rashers of bacon
1 bunch basil
1 /4 cup Olive oil
Prep TIME: 10mins
Cooking TIME: 30mins
Prepare the bacon by removing the rind and meaty part of the bacon, all you need for this recipe is the long thin rasher, so reserve the remaining bacon for another time!
Wrap one piece of bacon around the inside edge a muffin whole in a muffin tray. And place any off cuts on the bottom of the muffin cup. Repeat with remaining 11 pieces. Then place in a hot oven (200 degrees) for 5-7mins.
Meanwhile, prepare the Basil Oil. Remove Basil leaves from stalks and place in a blender with oil. Blitz for 2mins or until smooth.
Remove from the oven and place 1tsp of basil at the bottom of each cup, then crack an egg into each one. Return to the oven for 10mins or until yolk of the egg is cooked to your liking (I love it runny!!).
Remove from oven and drizzle with remaining basil oil, serve with crusty bread.
Or store in the fridge for a quick mid-week snack or breaky!
