Bacon, Egg and Mushroom Salad

Serves 4


4 eggs

8 rashers back bacon

1 bag rocket or mixed salad leaves

1 Romaine lettuce, shredded

200g chestnut or closed cup mushrooms, sliced

12 cherry tomatoes, halved

4 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar

2 tsp wholegrain mustard

4 tbsp croutons

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Hard-boil the eggs for 8-10 minutes, then plunge them into cold water to cool them.

While the eggs are cooling, grill the bacon rashers until crisp. Drain on kitchen paper.

Mix together the rocket or salad leaves and Romaine lettuce and arrange on 4 large serving plates with the mushrooms and tomatoes. Shell the eggs and quarter them, then share between the plates.

Make the dressing by mixing together the olive oil, lemon juice or vinegar and wholegrain mustard. Season.

Sprinkle the dressing over the salads, then snip the bacon rashers over the top. Add the croutons, then serve.
