Brian Turner's Big Brekkie (Swiss, German and English!)

"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."

Ready In:




  • To make the rosti, place the grated potato, spring onion and seasoning into a bowl and mix together until combined.
  • Heat the oil in a small pan and scatter the potato in, spreading it out evenly.
  • Gently fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until crisp, golden and cooked through.
  • Place the sausage meat, breadcrumbs, ketchup and mustard into a large bowl and mix together until well combined. Shape the mixture into a sausage.
  • Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the sausage for 6-8 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally.
  • 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.
  • Cook the tomato in the griddle pan for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • 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.
  • Transfer the eggs, tomato, rosti and sausage onto a serving plate with the fried bread and serve at once.

  1. 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.
  2. 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 ;-) ).
  3. 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:-)

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
