Sunny Bacon & Eggs..

I love bacon and eggs... really I do, but sometimes I'd like something a little different for breakfast.

I've no doubt a few people reading will think they could never eat this meat & sweet potato hash for breakfast, but believe me, you will adapt very quickly to eating meat in the morning.... If you're still not sure, try this recipe as a quick lunch.. It really doesn't matter what time of the day you eat it, it's going to taste awesome...

This literally takes about 10 minutes to put together... time constraints really are no excuse for eating junk food... 

  • 1 small sweet potato, cut into wedges
  • 2 pieces smoked bacon, diced 
  • 50g chorizo, chopped 
  • 4 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tsp tomato purée
  • 2 tbsp passata
  • 1 egg
  • chopped fresh parsley

Start by placing the sweet potato wedges in the microwave for 5 minutes, tossing a couple of times to ensure they cook evenly. 

Meanwhile, start by cooking the chorizo & bacon together in a wok over a high heat. 

Add mushrooms (onions are yum here too). Continue to cook mixture for 2-3 minutes. 

Next add passata, tomato purée & chopped herbs. Allow to simmer over a low heat. 

At this stage, the sweet potato wedges will almost be ready so you can fry/poach the egg. 

Once the egg is cooked, serve with wedges and chorizo/bacon. 

Garnish with fresh parsley & sprinkle with a little smoked paprika. 

This literally looks like sunshine on a plate... you won't even consider that bowl of cereal after you've tried this in the morning!
