Getting everything ready

  • Cut the crusts off the bread and cut into 1cm croûtons.

  1. Fry the croûtons and keep them warm.
  2. Place the tray of mushrooms and black pudding under the grill and cook for about 4 minutes.
  3. Remove the tray from the grill, turn over both the mushrooms and the black pudding.
  4. Add the bacon and tomatoes to the tray and replace under the grill and cook for about a further 3-4 minutes.
  5. Turn the bacon half way through cooking.
  6. Meanwhile, gently heat the tomato ketchup.
  7. Bring the water for poaching the eggs to a gentle boil and poach the eggs.
  8. When the breakfast is cooked, place a flat mushroom in the centre of a warmed plate, add a slice of black pudding followed by two small rashers of bacon and top with a soft poached egg.  Place three tomatoes and a few croutons around each plate and drizzle over with ketchup.  Mill over some back pepper and serve your breakfast while hot.

Mini cooked breakfast – hints and tips

If you are not a lover of black pudding, use your favourite sausage instead.

This cooked breakfast is nice served with small triangles of hot toast.

Be careful with salt as the bacon may be salty enough.  Don’t forget – you can always add seasoning but never take it away!
