Dippy egg with cheesy pancetta soldiers

Wake mum up with breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day.

Serves: 1


1 slice of bread
Butter (to spread)
1/2 tsp Marmite
20g grated comté
1 tbsp crème fraîche
1/4 tsp dijon mustard
5 slices pancetta
1 medium free-range egg


Toast the slice of bread, then spread with butter and Marmite. In a bowl, mix together the grated comté, crème fraîche and mustard, then spread this evenly across the toast. Cut into 5 soldiers. Wrap each piece in a thin slice of pancetta. Heat the grill to medium-high, then half-fill a small pan with water and bring to the boil. Gently lower the egg into the water with a slotted spoon. As soon as the water comes back to the boil, set the timer for 4 minutes for a soft-boiled egg with a runny yolk.

Meanwhile, put the soldiers under the grill for about 4 minutes until sizzling and crisp. Serve the egg in an egg cup with the soldiers for dipping.
