Wow, two in a row here I think everyone. Stuck for breakfast ideas, I once again found myself rummaging through the fridge/freezer for inspiration and found some frozen sausages. The quick addition of some shallots, and some mini bell peppers and thyme from the garden and ‘voila’, sausage and thyme omelette.
These were Cumberland sausages which worked particularly well, being rich in herbs and flavouring but I’m betting good Italian or Toulouse varieties would be good too.
I won’t go into details here, it was only an omelette, but it’s simplicity itself really: just skin the sausages and break into small pieces and fry it off with a couple of sliced shallots and the peppers until cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and add the leaves from a couple of sprigs of thyme.
Beat four eggs and pour it in. Once the sides begin to appear cooked, finish it off under the grill for a few minutes until all the egg is set.
And that’s it…I would use butter ordinarily, but the calorie count would have taken a battering and to be honest, it was none the worse without it.
Made a lovely breakfast with a decent pot of coffee and some Wilkin & Sons brown sauce.
