Weekend English Breakfast Frittata


Where has this week gone to? It's whizzed by, and now here we are looking forward to the weekend. With that in mind why not take a little time and enjoy a 'Weekend English Breakfast Frittata' … it's a clever twist on the full English breakfast! Packed with sausage, smoked bacon and soft button mushrooms, this Frittata is just the perfect early morning dish, and so low in carbs, it's virtually no carb!

Ingredients:
Serves Four
2 outdoor-bred pork sausages
1 tbsp. oil
3 smoked back bacon rashers fat trimmed cut into cubes
75 g button mushrooms sliced
65 g tomatoes halved (e.g. cherry or pomodorino)
4 large (British) free-range eggs
12.5 g bunch fresh chives snipped

Method:
1. Squeeze the sausages out of their skins, and roll the sausage-meat into 12 bite-size balls.
2. Heat ½ tablespoon of the oil in a 20cm ovenproof frying pan. Add the sausage and fry all over for 1 minute, until browned and cooked through. Add the bacon and mushrooms and fry for a few minutes, until golden. Add the tomatoes for a further minute. Remove the mixture and set aside. Discard excess fat from the pan.
3. Whisk together the eggs and chives and season with freshly ground black pepper. Stir in 2/3 of the fried sausage mix. Pre-heat the grill to medium.
4. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan over a medium heat. Add the egg mixture, tipping the pan so that it covers the base. Turn down the heat and scatter over the remaining sausage mixture. Cook for 8 minutes, or until almost set.
5. Place under a pre-heated grill, for 2-3 minutes, until the frittata is set and golden. Let cool slightly, then slide out of the pan, cut into wedges and serve.
6. Enjoy!

YUM! I never think of making a "fancy" breakfast during the summer as it is so come and go, but I am going to print and save this for a lazy fall weekend. I love breakfast frittatas or any frittatas. Happy weekend. Erika
