Baked Potato with Bacon and Egg

Ingredients: (Per Potato)

1 slice of bacon
1 large egg
1 small shallot
1 tsp low fat mayonnaise
Freshly ground black pepper


Put the egg in to a pan of cold water, bring up to the boil and simmer for about six minutes. Remove it from the pan, gently crack the shell on a hard surface and peel it carefully under running water. Place it in a small mixing bowl.

Grill 1 slice of bacon and pat dry with paper towel to get rid of as much grease and fat as possible. Slice finely and put them in to the bowl with the egg.

Peel and finely slice the small shallot and add it to the bowl, along with the mayonnaise. Stir everything well with a fork, breaking up the egg. Season with pepper only as sufficient salt should be obtained from the bacon. Spoon over the baked potato.

Notes & Tips:
I think this would taste awesome with an over easy egg on top instead of doing the hard boiled egg, too.
