After starting the blog a little over a year ago, I noticed that with all the good food I had been consuming (purely for research purposes, you understand) my waistline was starting to expand at a rapid rate. I had lost weight with Weight Watchers before and so decided to join again when my weight gain started to bother me. It’s a program that really works for me because nothing is restricted, but I’m not here to tell you about the diet…instead I’d like to share a recipe with you from Simple Start. It’s a ‘throw-it-all-in’ kind of dish that is delicious, keeps you satisfied and you would never feel like this was diet food!
Recipe #10: Breakfast hash with poached eggs
Author: Sam The Food Fan
Recipe type: Breakfast
- 1x red onion sliced into thin slices
- Bacon medallions sliced
- 8 -10 cherry tomatoes
- 8 -10 parboiled new potatoes, sliced in half
- Handful of mushrooms
- 2 x eggs
- Chopped parsley
- 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
- Splash of Tabasco sauce (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Spray a large frying pan with calorie-controlled cooking spray, or 1 teaspoon of good olive oil.Add the onions, bacon, potatoes and mushrooms and fry until the onions become translucent. Make sure you keep everything moving around.
- Add the whole grain mustard and mix well. Turn off the heat and add the cherry tomatoes and parsley.
- Add the Tabasco sauce (if using) and season to taste.
- In a separate pot, bring some water to the boil and add a splash of vinegar. Once the water is boiling, stir the water rapidly to form a whirlpool. Crack your eggs into the centre of the whirlpool and then let boil for about 2 minutes or until the eggs are poached to your liking. You could fry the eggs if you like, but I prefer poached eggs.
- Plate up your breakfast hash and then place the eggs on top. Sprinkle a little more chopped parsley on top and serve.
