Cut the bread into 3 equal portions, length wise and horizontally.
Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the milk, season well & beat thoroughly.
Pour on to a large plate and lay the bread, cut the side down in the eggy mixture. Leave to soak for a minute before turning over.
Heat a large frying pan, add oil and fry the bacon on medium heat till crisp. Remove & drain well on kitchen paper.

Now place the bread on a plate & spread the ketchup on the base slices.
Add a layer of tomato, followed by the bacon and the rocket leaves.

Tip: For vegetarian could do this without bacon. Just add some fresh mozzarella cheese and maybe some caramelized onions.
