Ingredients

Egg and bacon wedges
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 rindless bacon slices (195g)
  • 3/4 cup (110g) drained semi-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 3/4 cup (90g) coarsely grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 cup (300g) self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon caster (superfine) sugar
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) milk, approximately

Method

Egg and bacon wedges
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Grease and line oven tray with baking paper.
  • 2
    Cover eggs with cold water in medium saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring, to centre the yolks. Simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes. Drain; rinse eggs under cold water until cool enough to handle, then peel the eggs.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, cook bacon in heated large frying pan until crisp; drain on absorbent paper. Coarsely chop eggs, bacon and tomatoes; combine with half the cheese in medium bowl.
  • 4
    Sift flour and sugar into large bowl; stir in bacon mixture. Make a well in the centre; add milk. Use a knife to 'cut' milk through flour mixture until mixture forms a soft sticky dough. Turn dough onto floured surface; knead gently until smooth. Press dough into a 22cm (9 inch) round on oven tray. Dip knife in flour, cut dough into eight wedges. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 5
    Bake wedges about 30 minutes or until wedges sound hollow when tapped. Cool on tray.

Notes

Wrap individual wedges in plastic wrap and freeze for up to three months. Defrost as required either overnight in the refrigerator or in the microwave on HIGH (100%) for 1 minute.
