Ingredients
  • 4 Smart Price Eggs
  • 3 rashers Smart Price Unsmoked Streaky Bacon
  • 2 thick slices bread (1-2 days old), cubed
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 Asda Cos Lettuce, torn into large pieces
  • 4 tbsp 40% Less Fat Creamy Caesar Dressing
  • 40g Parmesan, shaved
Method
  • Put the eggs in a small pan with just enough cold water to cover them. Put on the lid and heat until boiling. Remove from the heat. Leave the eggs in the covered pan for 8-9 minutes. Or, if you prefer soft yolks, leave them for 7-9 minutes. Drain and leave to cool.

  • Meanwhile, dry-fry the bacon until crisp. Put on a plate lined with kitchen roll, then set aside.

  • Toss the bread in the oil until evenly coated. Tip into the pan and cook on a low-to-medium heat, turning often, until crisp and golden. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, toss the salad with the Caesar dressing. Cut the bacon into small bits.

  • Shell and quarter the eggs and arrange on top of the salad. Then add the bacon, croutons and Parmesan. Season to taste.
