New Ideas for the Humble Bread Roll: Alida Ryder Shares Two Delicious Recipes

Simple & DeliciousHeerlik & MaklikAlida Ryder, author of the cookbook Simple & Delicious, has two great ideas to turn the humble bread roll into a delicious meal. She shared a recipe for pork and apple burgers with Eat Out magazine and another for a bacon and egg roll with almond and chilli pesto on the Kitchen Daily blog.

“A few years ago I would’ve turned my nose up at this burger and told you that I don’t eat fruit with meat,” says award-winning blogger, recipe developer and food stylist Alida Ryder. “But my palate has matured a bit since then and I appreciate the effect sweet and savoury flavours have on each other. Pork and apples is just one of those classic, delicious combinations.”

With these burgers the apple is used as a subtle flavouring more than a partner to the pork and its sweetness is just noticeable. Alida likes to serve them with caramelised onions or thinly sliced apples, sliced camembert and fresh rocket.

Today, I won’t be giving you a lengthy post abut how fabulous this dish is. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Just imagine a soft, oozy egg on top of crisp, salty bacon in a soft roll flavoured with chili, basil & almond pesto. Simple and perfect.

100g (3.53 ounces) blanched almonds
80g (2.82 ounces) basil leaves, stems removed
1 clove garlic, peeled
½ – 1 chilli, roughly chopped
½ cup olive oil
½ cup grated Pecorino cheese
