Turkey Bacon and Poached Egg Open Sandwich
Who says you need to give up a scrumptious weekend cooked breakfast? Following on from my Bacon and Scrambled Eggs Sandwich Dukan Style recipe published a while ago, this weekend I decided to treat myself to a very similar recipe where yummy turkey bacon rashers are combined with a poached egg prepared using a Poachpod. The galette is a really nice replacement for bread and the runny egg yolk helps keep the turkey bacon moist. This recipe is suitable for the Attack Phase and PP days and can be enjoyed with roasted tomatoes, mushrooms or wilted spinach on P+V days of the Cruise Phase.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Ingredients (Serves 2)
2 oat bran galettes flavoured with your favourite herbs
8 low-fat turkey bacon rashers
a pinch of dried dill
freshly ground black pepper
Let’s get cooking
1. Pre-heat the grill to 180C degrees
2. Prepare 2 oat bran galettes using our basic recipe. Due to the lack of added fats in this recipe, it’s a good idea to add more flavour by using fresh or dried herbs so add a pinch of your favourite to the batter before cooking the pancake. Once cooked, place each galette on a plate and set aside
3. Line a baking tray with tin foil, place the turkey rashers on the tray and pop under the grill – they will take approximately 10-15 minutes to cook
4. When the turkey bacon is almost cooked, it’s time to poach the eggs. You can use the swirl method, however, I’ve never quite managed to master that technique without making a right mess so I tend to use a Poachpod, i.e. a silicone egg poacher. A pack of two costs less than a fiver and they save a lot of time and hassle. Simply spray each pod with low fat cooking spray, crack the eggs and gently slide into the poaching pod, being very careful not to break the yolk. Then sprinkle each egg with a pinch of dried dill. Float the pods into a large pan full of boiling water (sauté pans are the best for this!), put the lid on and cook for 4 minutes for deliciously runny poached eggs
5. Arrange the bacon on top of the oat bran galettes and place a poached egg on top of each. Season with freshly ground black pepper and enjoy this yummy Dukan-friendly bacon sarnie!
