What you'll need
  • 6 slices of white or rye bread, sliced 1.5cm thick
  • 6 rashers of streaky bacon
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 150ml of milk

  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Handful of fresh mint

How to make it
  1. In a large bowl place the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Whisk together until light, fluffy and well combined. Add the slices of bread and ensure each one is well covered, set aside.
  2. Slice segments of blood orange and pink grapefruit ensuring the skin and pith is removed from each piece.
  3. Set the grill or broiler on high and place the bacon rashers under the heat to cook until crispy.
  4. Heat a frying pan to medium high and add some butter. Once the butter starts to bubble, add a slice of bread, and fry on both sides until lightly golden and cooked through, approximately 2 minutes each side.
  5. Once the bread slices are cooked, top with the crispy bacon, citrus segments, some mint leaves, and a generous volume of maple syrup. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
