If we have time over the weekends we visit the neighbourhood market and buy fresh home-made Italian sausages for this dish. It is easier than you think to make your own sausages; then you know exactly what goes into them.
This is the original 'Fathead' pizza (famous in the low carb world). It takes 10 minutes to make and one pizza is enough to share for lunch. You can put your favourite toppings on but avocado and bacon is one of Lucca’s favourites. I always have some crispy fried bacon in the fridge for use in scrambles or omelettes.
Bologna, 1973. Giuseppe Conte, an artisan purveyor of fi ne Italian salami, is mixing pork with fat, herbs, and pepper, ready to be cased and shaped into one of his prized sausages. Suddenly a plume of dark brown smoke clouds the room. Giuseppe coughs, splutters, then licks his lips. “Chocolate?!”. A bag of cocoa powder had fallen from a shelf high above the mixing bowl and landed square in the mix. Throwing caution to the wind, curious as to whether he may have discovered a potentially wondrous flavor combination, Giuseppe completed the salami and sold it from his stall at the Mercato. Everyone hated it. This story isn’t true, but the recipe below is every bit as real as our imagination, and is meat-free! We chucked in Snickers because they’re great, but you can substitute them for your favorite chocolate bar if you want. Enjoy, guys!

Sometimes, you want a light, refreshing breakfast of oats and berries, and sometimes, you want a soft-boiled egg, placed inside an avocado, wrapped in a blanket of bacon. One might justify making our recipe by reminding themselves that avocado is the good kind of fat. As for the bacon, well you can’t win ’em all… Prepare to pig out.
Making pastry is quick, easy and essential on a limited budget.
The basic rule is ‘half fat to flour’ with a sprinkling of salt. Butter tastes best, it may be a bit more expensive than lard or marg but it goes a long way.
