Prep time: 10 minutes

1 Switch on the grill and trim the fat from the rashers (this can cut their fat content by almost half).

2 Stick the rashers under the  grill, then lightly toast the bread. Rub each toasted slice with a halved garlic clove (adding flavour and eliminating the need for butter).

3 When the bacon is cooked, leave it to rest for a minute between two sheets of kitchen towel to soak up the excess fat.

4 Spread the salsa directly on the toast and layer on the spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Consume immediately – as if you needed telling.
