My BLT with avocado and egg is a tasty way to start the morning. The added zing of HP sauce mixed with homemade garlic mayonnaise means there's no excuse for not having a great day.


3 cloves garlic

1 tsp salt

4 egg yolks

1 lemon, juiced

2 cups light olive oil

8 rashers streaky bacon

4 free-range eggs

2 tomatoes

1 avocado

8 cos lettuce leaves

100ml HP sauce

4 sourdough rolls


To make garlic mayonnaise, grind garlic with salt until a paste is formed. Add yolks to a blender with garlic paste and lemon juice. Blend ingredients on ¾ speed and add oil slowly until mixture is thick and creamy.

For BLT, fry bacon and eggs over medium heat in a heavy-based pan, then keep warm. Slice tomatoes and avocado, mix the HP with garlic mayonnaise. Slice each roll in half, add bacon first, then tomato, avocado, a pinch of salt and a large tablespoon of HP mayo. Place fried egg and lettuce on top and another teaspoon of mayo. Top with other half of roll.
