8 rashers bacon, rindless
3 tblspns pure maple syrup
1 tspn hot chilli sauce
1 tspn cracked black pepper
4 thick slices sourdough bread
1 avocado, halved, stone removed
1 tblspn lemon juice
Cracked black pepper
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Heat the oven to 200C. Place the bacon on a baking tray lined with baking paper, in a single layer.
Whisk the maple syrup and chilli sauce, and brush each rasher with the mixture.
Scatter with cracked black pepper and bake for 10 minutes or until done to your liking (keep an eye on it, as thin bacon could burn). It will crisp further as it cools.
Roughly mash the avocado with lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Grill or toast the bread on both sides.
To serve, thickly spread the toasted or grilled bread with avocado, top with bacon and serve.
