If you follow our Instagram you will see that I spend many weekend mornings eating breakfast or brunch at The Hive in Stow on the Wold.
The breakfast/brunch menu is small but full of delicious dishes including one of my favourite plates of food at the moment- smashed avocado, chilli jam, poached eggs and bacon (for an extra £2) on sourdough. The chilli jam under the avo is a massive game changer and something that I would never had naturally added to my breakfast. It also benefits from the additional bacon.
It's actually that good that I recreated it at home using some of my favourite producers and adding a few extra touches including adding some Chilli Rapeseed Oil to the avocado.
Here's what I used.

The Cotswold Farmer Bacon
