Half English Breakfast

A full English breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausages, baked beans, fried tomatoes, fried mushrooms and toast or fried bread) is one of my favorite meals. Pretty much anything with fried, soft-boiled or poached eggs in is one of my favorite meals but an English breakfast is delicious for so many other reasons too!

I’ve been trying to think up ways to eat more vegetables for breakfast and the English breakfast seemed like a good place to start. I mean, it contains two where most breakfasts contain none! I was also sure there must be a way to simplify an English breakfast to make it much quicker and simpler to prepare. Once I stopped trying to include the eggs it all fell into place. This version just uses the bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes but they’re cooked all together so the flavors really combine well. It also only takes about 15 minutes to cook.

Heat up a large frying pan over a medium-high heat and then lay the bacon out across the bottom. Cook the bacon for about 10 minutes without turning it over until it’s crispy on one side. While the bacon is cooking, slice the mushroom and tomato into pieces about 1/4″ thick. Once the bacon has cooked on the bottom, drain any fat, turn each slice over and then lay the tomato and mushroom over the bacon in a single layer. Cook for about 3 more minutes then turn the mushroom and tomato over and cook for another 3 minutes and serve!
