Big Brunch – one dish wonder

This has become a bit of a famous dish in our house. Whenever we host a brunch, we prepare this one dish breakfast . It’s all done in the oven and doesn’t require too much effort once guests arrive.

I made this recipe recently for a pre-ascot champagne brunch.

Ingredients (serves 6)
6- 10 sausages (I like Black Farmer Chipolatas)
20 button mushrooms
6 streaky bacon rashers
1 punet of cherry tomatoes
6 -10 eggs
1 bunch of spring onions
1 large handful of chopped basil
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 200°C. Chop spring onions and basil and mix together in a bowl and set aside.

Arrange the sausages and mushrooms in a large roasting pan. Drizzle over some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in oven, turning once, for 10 minutes. Add the bacon and bake for a further 10 minutes. Add in the tomatoes until cooked. Arrange the mixture in the pan to create spaces. Crack 1 egg into each space. Bake for 4-5 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your liking.

Sprinkle over spring onion and basil mixture and serve.

And off we go champers in hand!

This is epic. I do a similar thing in a frying pan and then grill it to finish the eggs – probably your version is far healthier!
