Ingredients

  • 8 Thin pork sausages See note 1 below
  • 400 g Bacon
  • 8 Tomatoes on the vine
  • 12 Portobello mushrooms See note 2 below
  • 100 g Butter
  • 8 Free range eggs
  • 120 g Fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp Canola oil

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 deg °C
  • Start with your mushrooms and tomatoes, place a piece of baking paper onto an oven tray.  Put your vine tomatoes in the center and sprinkle over a pinch of salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Peel the skin off your portobello mushrooms and remove the center stalk. Place onto the tray with your tomatoes. Place a knob of butter on each mushroom. Grind over a good pinch of salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Place the tray into your pre heated oven and bake for 15 minutes. While baking prepare the other ingredients.
  • Heat a large pan on your stove top, add a couple of tablespoons of canola oil and a knob of butter, add your Havoc thin sausages and brown on each side. Remove and set aside and then add your spinach to the pan and cook for 30 seconds until just wilted.
  • Grab your large oven proof dish, arrange your wilted spinach on the base, layer around the mushrooms, tomatoes, Havoc thins and bacon.
  • Make little pockets where you want your eggs to sit and crack in your eggs.
  • Season with a pinch of salad and a good grind of pepper. Place into your oven and cook for 12 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Note 1: You can also use breakfast sausages, this dish works best with smaller sausages.  If using thicker ones adjust cooking time.
Note 2: We love portobello mushrooms, you can substitute for whatever's available in your area but go for a larger flat variety if you can.
