Its a yorkshire chef but the recipe is both english and european since it includes Rosti and traditional eggs and european sausages. Homemade potato rosti, regular sausage meat kicked up a notch, eggs, fried bread and tomatoes..and all in less than 30 mins to prepare YUM. Make this for your sweetie on a cold morning, or the whole family by increasing the ingredients.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the rosti, place the grated potato, spring onion and seasoning into a bowl and mix together until combined.
  2. Heat the oil in a small pan and scatter the potato in, spreading it out evenly.
  3. Gently fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until crisp, golden and cooked through.
  4. Place the sausage meat, breadcrumbs, ketchup and mustard into a large bowl and mix together until well combined. Shape the mixture into a sausage.
  5. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the sausage for 6-8 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally.
  6. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a griddle pan and griddle the bread for 2 minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden. Transfer the fried bread to a serving plate.
  7. Cook the tomato in the griddle pan for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  8. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a medium frying pan and crack the eggs in beside each other. Gently fry for 1-2 minutes, carefully spooning the oil over the top to cook the top.
  9. Transfer the eggs, tomato, rosti and sausage onto a serving plate with the fried bread and serve at once.

As expected from Brian Turner....this is a real belly buster no nonsense breakfast, that hits the spot.....and keeps hitting it!!!<br/>I shaped my sausage meat into patties, which meant that after colouring them up in a griddle pan, and getting a nice crust on them, I had to pop them into the oven to ensure that they cooked all of the way through.......deeeelicious!<br/>I used garlic chives straight from the garden in the rosti, which was really tasty, and some day old Pane Di Casa bread griddled up with a beautifully fried sunny side up egg on top was just out of this world.<br/>The breakfast of champions.....that will keep you going all day long!!<br/>Made for PRMR.

We are so full! What a great idea - an EU fry-up!!! The rosti were great, the sausage was spiced just right and fried egg on fried toast! Going to run around the block 3 times. Thanks (I think ;-) ).

FABULOUS and BIG! I used local Toulouse sausages for the sausage and a friend's free range chicken's eggs. We had this for lunch and needed very little to east for supper! I did not have any spring onions, so I used some normal onions and sprinkled some parsley on for colour. Made for Holiday Tag and very much enjoyed - merci encore Marra! FT:-)
