Healthy Big Breakfast With Fried Eggs

Without looking at the menu, you know you're getting the big breakfast. It's always been the Australian way.

But it's Sunday morning. You've woken up with a hankering for a big feed. And the thought of waiting in line outside your local cafe... well, that hurts more than your hunger pains. 

Here's an idea. How about you whip up a big breakfast at home yourself. You're a weekend chef. It's not that hard. Oh, you need a solid Aussie recipe to follow? Bob’s your uncle. (Here you go.)

Ingredients

  • Cooking oil spray
  • 4 x low-fat sausages (beef, turkey, chicken or kangaroo)
  • 275g baby roma truss tomatoes
  • 200g button mushrooms, halved
  • 8 eggs, at room temperature
  • 420g can reduced-salt baked beans
  • 4 thick slices wholegrain bread
  • Baby spinach leaves, to serve

Method

  1. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil to grease.  Heat pan over medium heat.  Add sausages and cook, tossing often, for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through.  Transfer to a plate and keep warm. 
  2. Add tomatoes to one side of pan and mushrooms to other side. Cover and cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until tomato skins begin to split and mushrooms are tender.  Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm. 
  3. Spray the frying pan with a little more oil and heat over medium heat. Crack 4 eggs into pan and fry until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Repeat using remaining eggs.
  4. Heat baked beans following packet directions.  Toast bread.  Place toast onto serving plates.  Top each with 2 eggs.  Serve with baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms and baby spinach.
