Blueberry pancakes, caramelised banana and cheat's bacon
Phil Vickery is back after his Christmas feast with the perfect start to our week as he cooks up an ultimate American breakfast of blueberry pancakes, caramelised banana and cheat's bacon.
Sounds indulgent? Well the good news is that it'll still fit into a calorie-controlled diet!
200g net weight eye of fresh pork loin, trimmed of all skin and fat
3 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
Cut the pork into 6 thin slices, a sharp knife is very important here
Mix the salt and sugar together, then liberally spread over all the slices on both sides and leave for 10 minutes
When ready, rinse well in cold water and pat dry
Heat 2 tbsp oil in non-stick frying pan and gently cook for a couple of minutes on each side
Light blueberry pancakes
The popular myth is that pancakes can not be stored, they can be made, cooled, then stacked together on top of each other then covered with cling film. They will keep this way in a fridge for up to 5 days.
