Summer breakfast Salad


1. In a hot oiled pan, fry the pudding and bacon until evenly cooked and crispy.

2. Pop in the tomatoes and allow to cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, whisk up the salad dressing in a small bowl and emulsify all the ingredients to make a nice sweet dressing.

4. Grab a bowl and pop the baby leaves in. Toss in the dressing. Then add the cooked bacon, chop up the Clonakilty Blackpudding and add to mix.

5. Now pour in the beans, give it all a nice swirl and divide onto two plates.

6. Next, poach the eggs. While poaching the eggs, fry the potato cakes in the same pan you used to fry the bacon and pudding.

7. Gently place the poached eggs on top of the salad and arrange the potato cakes around the plate.
