Shepherds pie to me is proper comfort food for me, perfect for a cold winter's…
You cannot beat a Full English breakfast on a Saturday morning, even more so when you have a full day of jobs to do. A good breakfast can really set you up for the day, the downside though is if you are trying to either watch your weight or lose some weight like me a full English is not the best thing for the diet.
With the Slimming World diet it is possible to have a nice full english breakfast and not worry about eating something you shouldn’t, it’s all about how is cooked.
The first thing you need to do is ensure you don’t use any oil and as little fat as possible. If you do need oil then you want to replace this with fry light. You also want to keep the meat fat content to a low if you’re going to have sausages then you want low fat ones, bacon should have the fat trimmed off so it’s only the medallions.
When making I cover a baking tray with foil and spray fry light on it and then put the sausages and bacon on the tray and again spray with a bit of fry light. Place this in the oven at roughly 180C and leave to fully cook. Whilst the meat is cooking you then want to put a pan on water on to boil as we will be using this for the poached eggs (although you could fry eggs but again make sure you use fry light!).
As well as the water you then want to place two more pans one with beans and one with chopped tomatoes. Finally you want to get a large pan and put a few sprays of frylight, this saucepan is for the spinach and some chopped mushrooms. This will all take around 20-30 minutes but continue cooking until everything is cooked completely.
Once the water has boiled for the eggs create the poached eggs, if you’re not comfortable doing it – check out a great method on making poached eggs here. Once you have plated up you only have to enjoy!!
I’d love to know what you think about this meal, please comment below and let me know how you get one! 🙂
I have enjoyed cooking for some years now, its one of the only things that I can do that makes me relaxed and forget any worries I have. I love trying new foods and visiting restaurants. Other hobbies include writing, game development and work :)
