This is one of my favourite weekend brunch recipes – all the flavours of a full English breakfast in a frittata! This Full English Breakfast Frittata is really quick and simple to make, and tastes delicious. Plus, if you make too much, it tastes great cold too – perfect for packed lunches the next day!
Heat your grill to medium. Place the sausages under the grill and cook for 15 minutes, turning occasionally. (See Note 1.)
Place the lardons/bacon in a large, non-stick, ovenproof frying pan (See Note 2.) and fry on a fairly high heat for about 3 minutes – until the bacon pieces are just starting to go brown. Stir frequently to stop the bacon sticking.
Add in the sliced mushrooms and fry for 2 more minutes, stirring frequently. Add in the potato and cook for another couple of minutes, before adding in the cherry tomatoes.
When the sausages are ready, remove them from the grill and cut each sausage into 6 pieces, taking care not to burn yourself! Put the sausage pieces into the frying pan and mix everything together. Turn down the heat to very low.
Break the eggs into a small jug and add salt and pepper to taste. Beat until the yolk and whites are well combined, then tip into the frying pan. Give the pan one quick stir to ensure the egg is evenly distributed and then don’t stir again, or you’ll end up with scrambled egg!
Make sure the pan is on a very gentle heat and cook for 5 minutes, then pop the pan under a medium grill for a further 5 minutes to cook the top of the frittata.
Remove the pan from the grill, slice the frittata into 8 portions and serve with buttered toast and baked beans, or crusty white bread and a side salad.
I grill the sausages, because I much prefer the taste of grilled sausages, but feel free to fry or oven cook them if that’s how you like them. Or, to make this even easy peasier, you could use some leftover sausages.
You will need to use an ovenproof frying pan, or parts of the pan may melt when you put it under the grill. I use this 28cm Oxo Non-Stick Frying Pan
Suitable for freezing.
