From the Mystery food novel Food To Die For. In the novel/recipe book, this recipe is described as being a Classic English Breakfast. Even though it's not kosher, I'm hoping some one else will enjoy the recipe, although I did hear once that there was such a thing as fake bacon.
- In a large skillet, melt the butter on medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes, or until browned. Transfer the mushrooms to a plate and keep warm.
- In the same pan, fry the bacon for 5 minutes, until crisp and brown, then transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Pour off the drippings, before adding the sausages to the pan and cook over medium heat for 8 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer ro a plate to drain.
- Pour the fat from the skillet onto a separate dish, and return 1 tsp of the bacon fat to the skillet to use to fry the tomatoes for 3 minutes per side. Arrange the tomatoes on 2 breakfast plates.
- Add 1 tbsp bacon fat to the skillet, fry the eggs over medium low heat to desired doneness. Arrange the eggs between the two plates.
- In the same pan, quickly fry the bread slices for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown, adding more bacon fat, if necassary. Arrangethe hot bread slices, bacon, sausages, and mushrooms on the plates. Serve immediately.
This was a great breakfast (that I gave an Irish touch to, using Irish bacon and Irish sausages). It really cooked rather quickly, and produced a wonderful, hearty breakfast that is a lovely treat. I will definitely be making this again! Made for ZWT 8.
Ahh, the guilty guilty pleasure that is the English breakfast :) Always a delight... and kept us full for at least two meals! I can't imagine a trip to Great Britain without it. I did make a mini version for myself, but made as directed for those dining with me who have larger appetites. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
Yummy breakfast! I have never even heard of frying bread in bacon grease, so had to give that a try. Very flavorful. I used a thickly sliced tomato because I didn't have any plum tomatoes, but made the recipe as directed other than that. Very good and very filling. Thanks Studentchef for a great breakfast. Made for ZWT8 - Great Britain.
