A ‘Fry Up’

And now the good news…  Since when did a ‘fry-up’ find it’s way onto a diet menu?  Well here goes.  Ok not fried but grilled, but still great.   They’re big breakfasts so more a weekend brunch than a weekday regular, perhaps.

Full English (for one):

  • An egg or two – poached or scrambled
  • 2 thin rashers of lean back bacon – all fat removed
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 Portobello mushroom
  • 1 lean sausage – if you really must
  • 1 slice of whole grain toast and a little butter.

You know how this goes don’t you?  Heat your grill to a medium high setting.  Grill or griddle the tomatoes and mushroom, but grill the bacon to allow fat to drain away. A sausage? – well it’s up to you.  You’re trying to lose weight so it’s better to save it for a Reload day but if you find yourself a good quality lean one it’ll be about 100 calories.  Poach your egg in simmering water with a little vinegar to help it hold together. Or whisk with a drop of milk and scramble softly in just a tiny smidgen of oil.
