  • Curry
  • 50 g Feta cheese, crumbled

  • 2 Hot cross bun(s), toasted

  • 1 Large avocado(s), smashed

  • 4 Streaky bacon

  • 1 Lime, juiced

  • 1/2 Red chilli, sliced

  • Mint, to taste

  • Seasonings of choice


  • Preheat the oven to 200c. Cook the bacon for 3-4 minutes each side or until crispy. When you turn over the bacon, add the hot cross buns, as it will soak up the leftover juices and go crispy.
  • In a bowl, add the avocado, lime juice, seasoning (extra black pepper) and half of the chopped chillies and smash with a fork until your desired consistency.
  • Finally, stack the smashed avocado and crispy bacon on the toasted hot cross bun and top with feta cheese, chopped mint and black pepper. Serve warm and enjoy!
