No-Fuss English Breakfast

Last month’s theme for the Breakfast Club run by Fingers and Toes and Fuss Free Flavours is British.  A big cooked breakfast is surely one of the best ways to start the weekend- and most of the ingredients are quick to cook as well.  It doesn’t take long to throw one together!

The only problem with  this, I find, is that fry-ups seem to use nearly every pan you’ve got, and all of them normally need attention at the same time.  Not exactly a calm occupation for a Saturday or Sunday morning!

It has recently occurred to me, however, that there might be another way of doing it.  It’s an approach of mine you may be familiar with: Bung it all in the oven!


No-Fuss English Breakfast
Save Recipe


  • 6 good sausages
  • Some tomatoes
  • Some mushrooms
  • 2 eggs
  • Bread for toasting


  1. Chop up the mushrooms and tomatoes and arrange them in a layer on the bottom of an ovenproof dish- I used a flat rectangular one
  2. Prick the sausages and place them on top of the vegetables. Put the dish in a fairly hot oven- mine was at 200°C
  3. Now you can go back to bed, or put the coffee machine on, and come back in 40 minutes!
  4. After 40 minutes, turn the sausages over and clear a space in two corners of the dish. Crack an egg into each of these spaces.
  5. Now turn your oven down- I set mine to 160°C- and leave it for another 15 minutes.
  6. After 15 minutes you can come back, put the toast on and pour another coffee.
  7. When it's been in the oven for an hour in total it will be ready to serve.

This breakfast was superb-  I’ll definitely be doing it again!  A great no-fuss Saturday morning.  Next question, how to incorporate bacon …

    Haha, awesome! I dunno, I think bacon could go in fairly easily… I actually rather like bacon baked until it’s super crispy, but your mileage may vary. I like both the simplicity of this and also the fact that it would probably be fairly easy to adapt, especially to make vegetarian.

    Indeed! Pretty much anything can be baked, so the adaptability is endless. If softer bacon was desired I think it could go underneath the vegetables.
