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.
Thanks! Sausage and eggs – breakfast of champions.
A whole breakfast in an omelette – brilliant. Must try with my venison sausages. Thanks
Cheers! Sounds good to me Tracey – homemade?
Of course, but I keep forgetting to finish the draft post on sausage making, will get round to it eventually, I seem to have a log jam of drafts at the mo 😉
Get it on here, I’d love to see it. Am thinking about investing in a gadget and having a go myself!
OK, you have spurred me on, will aim to do it over the next week. I’m on a goosey draft just now, and it’s growing arms and legs (as ever with me 🙂
This is a breakfast I could get the whole family to sit down and eat at the same time without any arguments!
Ha! I know what you mean, a pretty kid-friendly meal!
How beautiful! Nothing beats breakfast! 🙂
Thanks very much, and thanks for visiting! It’s rare I have enough time to make breakfast in the week so try to make up for it at the weekend.
Hi Phil, An omelet is such a perfect way to start the way, in my opinion. But really caught my eye was that beautifully seasoned frying pan. It’s a beaut!, and it’s nice to see a well used pan. Loved the photography, too.
Thanks very much! Clearly you’re a cook noticing the pan! I’ve had it a while and it never sees the dishwasher or soapy water 😉
I have a wok that’s never seen anything but highest heat possible until food bits burn off. Then a good oil while it’s hot. 😀
Brilliant! I’m investing in a new carbon steel one soon as soon as i’m back at the Chinese supermarket. I intend to have it a while!
Yum. My kind of breakfast!
Mine too! Thanks very much for visiting!
