Saturday is fry up day in our household. We have a lazy lie in (well we stay in bed and bribe Lex to stay upstairs for as long as possible…) and the come down to a large pot of coffee and a fry up for brunch.
For 3 people you need:
2 medium tomatoes, sliced in half
4-5 small mushrooms, destalked
2 knobs butter
salt and pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sunflower oil
3 hash browns
5 potato croquettes
3 rashers veggie bacon
3 veggie sausages
1 can beans
2 slices toast with butter and good quality marmalade
copious fresh orange juice
Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet and season. Drizzle over the oil and bake for 15 mins in a hot oven.
Place the mushrooms in a pan, with some butter, seasoning and the sunflower oil. Cook covered for 10 mins before removing the lid and allowing to brown slightly.
Cook the croquettes and hash browns as per instructions on the packet (i.e. bung them into a hot oven for about 20 mins). Do the same with the sausages.
Heat the beans in a pan.
Fry the eggs. Toast the bread. Cook the bacon in the oven for 2 mins each side.
Serve, scoff and then run away and hide from the washing up…!
