One-pan breakfast fry-up (serves 2)

This is a great way to eat all your favourite things at breakfast and still only dirty one frying pan!  Perfect for lazy weekends.

2 medium potatoes, scrubbed and diced
1 medium onions, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
250g bacon, diced (or used ready-diced bacon)
2 large tomatoes, diced (looking at the pics, I don't think I had tomatoes on Boxing Day)
about 10 closed cup mushrooms, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, diced
4 eggs
about 50g soft goats cheese
salt and pepper
pinch of dried rosemary
toast to serve
olive oil


Heat a little olive oil in a large non-stick pan.  Add the potatoes, onions and garlic and fry over medium heat for about 5 minutes.  Then add the bacon and bell pepper and continue to fry, stirring often, until the bacon is cooked and the potatoes are beginning to soften.  

Add the tomatoes and mushrooms and simmer until the mushrooms are just soft and the tomato has been somewhat absorbed into the mix.  Add the rosemary and salt & pepper to taste.

With the back of a spoon, make 4 small hollows in the mixture in the pan.  Carefully crack an egg into each hollow.  Scatter the cheese around the pan, cover the pan with a lid and leave to cook until the eggs are as runny or as hard as you like - I only cook it for a minute or two as I like runny egg yolks. 

Serve with plenty of hot buttered toast and Bucks Fizz!
