Check out these wonderful Irwin’s recipes to help make the most of your daily bread

What you'll need

2 thick Nutty Krust heels, cubed

3 tbsp olive oil, plus a little extra for frying

Ground black pepper

100g parmesan cheese, coarsely grated

50g double cream

1 Cos lettuce, washed and torn into pieces

30g black olives

4 slices of quality back bacon, grilled

2 cooked chicken breasts

Serves 4

Slice the chicken and bacon and place in a large salad bowl with olives, lettuce and freshly ground black pepper. Place the bread cubes in an oven proof frying pan and drizzle liberally with olive oil. Toss bread until well coated and starting to brown. Transfer pan to medium-heated oven until dry, golden and crisp — this takes about 10 minutes.

To make the dressing, add cream to the grated parmesan. Stir and pour over salad. Mix well with clean hands and add croutons.

Toss again and serve at once.
