Café Môr’s Laverbread Brekky Roll

Jonathan Williams runs the fabulously quirky Café Môr, the world’s very first solar-powered, mobile-converted fishing boat and seaweed kitchen. Overlooking Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, the food truck goes way beyond ordinary beach café grub, incorporating locally foraged ingredients in a menu that skips from this sensational (and sensationally easy to make) brekky roll with laverbread to Pembrokeshire lobster roll with Welsh seaweed butter.

Method

Place pan on medium heat and warm through, add bacon and make a patty out of the laverbread mix, cooking it next to the bacon. Once the bacon starts to crisp up, turn the laverbread patty over and add the egg. Top the cooked side of the laverbread patty with the cheese and allow to slowly melt. Gently toast the roll. Butter the toasted roll, then add the bacon, laverbread patty, cooked egg, pickles and Café Môr KelpChup (or ketchup).

Sit back and enjoy the finest brekky roll in the land!
