BLT Sandwich - 4 serves


8 Bacon rashers, cooked till crispy

4 Ripe tomatoes, thickly sliced

1 Garlic bulb, cut in half

Olive oil

1/2 cup Mayonnaise

1 teaspoon Lemon juice

4 Thick slices of sourdough bread

Emmentaler shavings

100g Rocket leaves

Balsamic vinegar


Preheat your oven to 200°C.

Place the garlic on a roasting tray, drizzle with some oil, and season with salt, roast for 30-40 minutes till soft. Gently push on the garlic bulb to get the soft garlic out, push into a small bowl.

Add the mayonnaise and lemon juice to the garlic and stir to combine, season with salt, you now have a shortcut aioli!

Lightly toast your sourdough bread and then spread with the aioli.

Top each slice with rocket, bacon, tomato & the cheese shaving.

Drizzle toast with a little oil and balsamic vinegar.

Ham, Cheese & Egg Sandwich - 4 serves


8 slices of thickly cut White bread

Wholegrain mustard

Dijon mustard

4 Eggs

300g Thinly sliced Gypsy ham (or any ham you prefer)

150g Thinly sliced Swiss cheese



Spread 4 slices of the bread with a thin layer of Dijon mustard, spread the other 4 slices with the wholegrain mustard.

Heat a frying pan with a little oil, add your eggs and fry to your liking, a soft centre works best.

Top the 4 slices of bread with the ham, an egg and then the cheese, place the other slice of bread on top. Butter both sides of bread with butter.

Heat a sandwich press, place sandwiches inside and toast till golden.

Passionfruit Sugar Muffins

60g Passionfruit pulp/Passionfruit curd

2 tablespoons Lemon juice


Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line your muffin pans with paper cups.

Sift your flour into a mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup of the caster sugar, stir through and make a well in the centre.

In a jug whisk the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and 150g of the melted butter, pour into the well.

Stir until just combined.

Fill each muffin cup, only halfway, top with a teaspoon of passionfruit pulp/curd and then top with batter.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Mix the lemon juice and remaining butter in a little bowl.

Add the remaining caster sugar in a bowl.

When the muffins comes out of the oven, take them our of the paper cups, brush with the lemon-butter mix and then roll in the sugar.

Heat a frying pan with a little oil, fry your onion till soft then add the mushrooms and fry till soft and starting to brown, add the wholegrain mustard, 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and the cream. Stir and cook for a few minutes, taste and season with salt and pepper. I like to add a dash of balsamic vinegar, but that's up to you.

Toast your bread and spread with the cream cheese, top each slice with the mushrooms and sprinkle with some chopped chives.
