Traditional English Breakfast

A fully cooked hearty breakfast of bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms and baked beans together with toast. This is for making a slightly healthier version of a traditional English breakfast recipe, with the emphasis on grilling and poaching rather than frying.

 ★ Ingredients ★ 

  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 pork sausages
  • 4 medium sized tomatoes
  • 400 g mushrooms
  • 8 slices of bread
  • 500 g baked beans

 ★ Instructions ★ 

  1. Halve the tomatoes across ways and set aside.
  2. Slice mushrooms and set aside.
  3. Heat the grill to a medium heat, and cook the sausages under it, turning frequently.
  4. Cover the base of a frying pan with about 1cm of water, and heat on a high heat until boiling. When it is boiling, carefully break the eggs into it. If you have cooking rings, you can put these into the water first and then break the eggs into the rings, to prevent the eggs from spreading too much - although really fresh eggs should stay together anyway. Once the eggs are in the pan, wait a few moments for the water to heat up again, then turn the heat down to a very very gently simmer. To ensure the tops of the eggs are cooked, spoon water from around the edge of the pan over the top of the eggs a few times during cooking. When cooked, the egg white should be soft but cooked through and the yolk still runny.
  5. Put the halved tomatoes under the grill with the sausages.
  6. Heat the baked beans in a pan and heat through over a medium heat.
  7. Heat up a very small amount of oil in another pan, and fry the mushrooms until they are soft.
  8. Put the bacon under the grill along with the sausages and tomatoes. Cook on one side for about 2 minutes, then turn once and repeat. Cook longer if crispier bacon is preferred.
  9. Whilst cooking the bacon, use a toaster or grill to toast the bread until golden.

 ★ Recipe Notes ★ 

You can always cook this in the more unhealthy traditional english breakfast way by shallow frying everything.
This could also include frying the bread in some of the sausage and bacon fat.
