A Fully Monty - Healthier Version!

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by LifeIsGood

This takes a traditional full English breakfast and gives it a healthier twist! Thanks to chef Jamie Oliver, you can get a full Monty in under 500 calories. It's actually a lot healthier than most pastries, muffins and croissants. Give it a go! *I have to admit that I used regular bacon instead of the Canadian bacon. Personal preference. It's up to you!

Delicious! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and made slightly smaller portions. It very much reminded me of a B&B we stayed at in Wales, where they did most of it on the grill to make it lighter. I used Recipe #407334 for the baked beans. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6

Directions

  1. Prep your full Monty:.
  2. Preheat the broiler to high.
  3. Put a wire rack on top of a cookie sheet.
  4. Halve the tomatoes.
  5. Trim the stalks of the mushrooms and clean them lightly.
  6. Remove any fat from the bacon.
  7. Score the sausages lengthways and open them out so they are flat (they will cook at the same time as everything else and it will also help to cook the fat out!).
  8. put the tomatoes, mushrooms and sausages on the wire rack, with the tomatoes cut side up and the mushrooms stalk side up.
  9. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper over the tomatoes and mushrooms.
  10. Very lightly rub them with the oil, you don't need much - even an olive oil spray would work!
  11. To cook your full Monty:.
  12. Put the cookie sheet, with wire rack, filled with your prepped ingredients under the broiler for about 5 minutes.
  13. Meanwhile put a pot of water on to boil.
  14. After 5 minutes, add the bacon to the wire rack and turn the sausages over. Put it back under the broiler and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes. *This all depends on the heat and speed of your broiler. Watch it carefully* Cook this until the bacon is golden and crispy.
  15. Meanwhile, put the beans into a small saucepan over a medium heat, to warm through.
  16. Put your slices of bread into the toaster.
  17. Crack the eggs into the pan of simmering water and poach for 2 to 3 minutes. To test if they are ready, carefully remove one of them using a slotted spoon and touch it gently with your finger. If it feels too soft, give it a minute or so more in the water. Once the eggs are done to your liking, remove them and drain on paper towels.
  18. To serve your full Monty:.
  19. Divide everything between 2 serving plates and sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper over the eggs.
  20. Enjoy!
