Sausages with the Lot


Serves 4 (easily halved)

You can enjoy sausages with the lot in this one pan wonder! It’s perfect for breakfast, lunch or brinner!

You know that saying  “you can take the girl out of England but you can’t take England out of the girl”? Well, I think that is totally true for me, especially when it comes to English breakfasts. Even though I’m a bona fide Australian (complete with a blue passport,) and even if it’s hot enough to fry an egg on a car bonnet outside, I still love a cooked breakfast. More to the point, I love all the ingredients so much so that I could eat them for breakfast, lunch or brinner!

Of course, cooked breakfasts are not really healthy per se, although I like to think this version is the exception. You don’t need to use a lot of oil, there’s fresh veggies and I  like to use 98% fat free chipolatas, not because they’re low in fat but because they’re big in taste.

These quantities will easily feed four but if I’m home alone, I quarter the ingredients and make this one-pan wonder for one. It’s fresh, filling and thanks to the herbs and the chilli, it’s popping with flavour, although I do sometimes add a sneaky spoonful of Shirl’s Eggplant Chutney on the side. I just can’t resist it!

Do you like your breakfasts hot or cold? Are you a fan of brinner too?


12 beef or chicken chipolatas (360g)

How to
