  • 200g bacon lardons
  • 100g butter
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 350g cooked brussels sprouts
  • 350g roast parsnips, cut into chunky pieces
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 75g roquefort, crumbled into chunky pieces


  • STEP 1

    Tip the lardons into a large cold frying pan and cook over a medium heat until the fat has rendered and the bacon’s really crisp. Use a slotted spoon to scoop out onto a plate. Reduce the heat to low and add 1/2 the butter, the onions and a large pinch of salt, and fry gently for 30 minutes until really soft. Turn up the heat, add the sprouts and parsnips, and fry for 10-15 minutes or until everything is golden and crisp.

  • STEP 2

    Tip the peas into a bowl and pour over a kettle of boiling water, leave for 1 minute then drain well and tip into a bowl. Use a fork to gently crush the peas with a pinch of salt. Stir the peas into the veg mixture with the crispy lardons and toss until heated through. Season and keep warm.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the remaining butter in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and crack in the eggs. Sprinkle with the chilli flakes and baste with the butter for 2-3 minutes until the edges are crisping and the whites have set.

  • STEP 4

    Add the roquefort to the hash and gently stir through. Divide the hash between plates, add an egg on top of each and serve.
