  • 6 hot cross buns
  • 6 thick rashers of smoky streaky bacon
  • 250g of smoky Chedder cheese, grated
  • Tomato relish to serve (optional)


  • Preheat the grill to high.
  • Place the bacon rashers on a non-stick oven tray, cook until golden and crispy, then flip and repeat on the other side. Remove and rest on paper towels.
  • Cut the hot cross buns in half and place cut side up on a clean oven tray.
  • Top each half with a small pile of the grated cheese.
  • Pop under the grill until melted and bubbling, then remove from the oven.
  • To assemble, cut each bacon rasher in half and place the two pieces on the bottom half of each hot cross bun. Top with a little tomato relish (if you like), pop on the hot cross bun top and devour immediately.
