turkey chiliIngredients

• 2 flat mushrooms
• 2 links sausages
• 2-3 slices canadian bacon
• 1 ripe tomato
• 1 large egg
• sliced bread
• Baked beans
• Cooked potatoes


Heat the flat grill plate over a low heat, on top of 2 rings/flames if it fits, and brush sparingly with light olive oil or vegetable oil. Add the sausages to the hot grill plate cook slowly for about 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden. After 10 minutes, change heat to medium before beginning to cook the other ingredients. I

Snip a few small cuts into the fatty edge of the bacon. Place the bacon straight on to the grill plate and fry for 2-4 minutes each side or until your preferred crispiness is reached. The cooked bacon can be kept hot on a plate in the oven.

Clean mushrooms using a pastry brush and trim the stalk level with the mushroom top. Add salt and pepper and drizzle over a little olive oil. Place stalk-side up on the grill plate and cook for 1-2 minutes before turning and cooking 3-4 minutes more. Don't over stir mushrooms so as to not get soggy.

Cut the tomatoes across in half, and with a small knife remove the green 'eye'. Add a dash of salt and pepper and drizzle with a olive oil. Place cut-side down on the grill plate and cook without moving for 2 minutes. Gently turn over and re-season. Cook 2-3 minutes until tender.

For the fried bread it's best to use bread that is a couple of days old. Heat frying pan to medium heat and cover with oil. Add the bread and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until crispy and golden brown. For a richer flavor you can add a pat of butter after you turn the slice.

Crack the egg straight into the pan with the fried bread and leave for 30 seconds. Add a pat of butter and lightly splash/baste the egg with the butter after melted. Cook and season, then remove from heat.

Heat the baked beans in a saucepan and serve on top of the fried bread. Serve your English Breakfast immediately on warm plates.
