BREAKFAST FRY UP - BIG AND TRADITIONAL





Having had this delicious breakfast this weekend just gone by-  I am now drooling over my computer screen just thinking about it. errr sorry. Everyone should make one of these kinds of breakfasts every now and then. And the better the produce eg organic and free range - the better for your body and the better it tastes!

INGREDIENTS
1 large potato per person
3- 4 rashers of bacon per person
half a handful of mushroom per person
1 or 2 eggs per person

EXTRAS 
1 onion
oil (olive or whatever kind you use)
salt
pepper

some freshly crushed garlic

I do this in stages to make sure everything is cooked and warm and ready to be served.

The potatoes will take the longest to cook so you need to start with them. 
Peel and thinly slice the potatoes and place in a baking dish. Peel and finely chop up an onion and sprinkle on top of the potato. Drizzle with olive oil and place a little crushed garlic on top. Season with salt and pepper and place in the oven at 180 degrees celcius. Stir every 5 - 10 minutes.

While the potatoes are cooking you can now fry the bacon in a frying pan with a little oil until crispy. Then place to one side.
Next chop your mushrooms into quarters and cook in a small pot or pan with some salt and  a little garlic. When ready place to one side.
When the potatoes in the oven are cooked through (remember to keep stirring them every now 5 - 10 minutes) have a pan ready for the eggs to be fried and put the mushrooms and bacon on a low heat to keep warm until dishing up. Turn on the grill of the oven while the eggs are frying and take the potatoes out so they don't get burned. When eggs are almost ready place them under the grill to cook any egg white (slime) that is still wobbly on top of the eggs.

Dish up everything and eat with seasoning and sauces of your choice.




ps the bacon in the photo I get from Cure Charcuterie at The Earth Fair Market in Tokai. And it is so delicious. It is worth every cent as it is hormone-free and free range and double delicious, = how bacon should taste :) ** I was in no way compensated to tell you this and I buy the bacon every week with no kick back - I just like it!!! Just Saying
