Bacon and Egg Rolls – Random Recipe Anniversary
It’s one year since Dom at Belleau Kitchen started his Random Recipes challenge. So to celebrate this momentous event, we have all had to go back to the first book we used for a Random Recipe. The first book I used for this challenge was Seasonal Cooking by Claire Macdonald of Macdonald.
I know that a few people have said they have never heard of Claire Macdonald, well she is well worth finding out about. An amazing cook, she owns the Kinloch Lodge on the Isle of Skye, she also writes a mean recipe and includes some entertaining stories along with the recipes. I’ve seen her demonstrate which is a real treat as she is very skilled and also very amusing.
Anyway, I opened this book and found myself staring at what seemed like a rather uninspiring recipe for Egg and Bacon Rolls. However, sticking to the rules I thought I’d better give it a go.
Bacon and Egg Rolls (Serves 6)
3-4 rashers streaky bacon
2 tbsp mayonnaise
freshly ground pepper
a little shredded lettuce
6 brown rolls
Hard boil the eggs . Grill the bacon until crisp, cool and cut into small pieces with scissors. Shell the eggs when cool and chop . Mix together the egg, bacon and mayonnaise in a bowl, season to taste. I found the bacon was salty enough without any additional salt just a little ground pepper.
Open the rolls and put a some shredded lettuce on the bottom half, pile on the egg and bacon mixture dividing it between the rolls.
I may have been a little sceptical about this being a ‘recipe’ as such, but it made a really tasty lunch and would also be a perfect breakfast or brunch dish, particularly as you could make up the filling the night before and keep in the fridge until required.
