  • 200g pineapple, peeled and thinly sliced


  1. Put mince, onion, tomato chutney, breadcrumbs and one egg in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into patties.
  2. Heat a large, lightly-oiled non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the patties and cook for 3 minutes. Turn and top with a slice of cheese. Cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted and patties are cooked. Set aside and keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
  3. Cook bacon until golden and crisp (approx 2 minutes each side). Remove from pan. Crack the remaining 4 eggs into the pan and cook for 3 minutes, sunny side up.
