Salad Days for Kids

Children love salad with anything salty so bacon is a great option.

Healthy breakfast by the sea

When on holiday we really just want to assemble food – not actually cook very much. Especially at lunchtime when the temperatures have soared. Children love salad with anything salty so bacon is a great option.

Frisée aux Lardons

  • 6 Cups Frisée lettuce and spinach
  • 8 Rashers Streaky bacon – Fried until crispy
  • 2 Slices Thick white bread – Cubed
  • 1 Clove Garlic – Chopped
  • 6 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbs Red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tsp Dijon mustard
  • good pinch Salt & Pepper

Optional extras

Caramelised onions, cucumber, lentils, poached or hard boiled egg

Step 1

Frying bacon

Retain the oils from frying the bacon and fry the bread until lightly toasted (you may need to add more oil).

Step 2

Lettuce, fried bread and bacon

Combine in a bowl the lettuce, fried bread and bacon. Mix the garlic, vinegar, olive oil and mustard in the pan you used to fry the bacon and bread and whisk over a low heat until warm.

Step 3

Poached egg on top of Frisée aux Lardons

Season and pour warm dressing over the salad.

This is especially good with a poached egg on top, great additions for variety are puy lentils (buy the ready-soaked ones) and sliced cucumber.
