Sunday morning found Big Boy happy that I was home with the family, so happy that he insisted I got up with him at a time too early for the morning after a blogging conference. As I came out of my bedroom, I was pretty sure I saw Daddy smile and snuggle down into the duvet as if he'd set Big Boy up to this, so I thought that we should cook breakfast for everyone else in the house, as a sneaky hint that we wanted them to get up too.
And so we did.
We fried eggs and mushrooms, toasted bread, grilled sausages and tomatoes, oven baked the hash browns, griddled pieces of bacon, microwaved baked beans and sliced fruit. Everyone got what they wanted and the Hash Browns went down a treat, both Big Boy and Top Ender thought they were better than the ones I make (I'm terrible at making them admittedly) and have asked if they can have them with dinner and not just breakfast, which is a great plan. As we savoured our breakfasts we couldn't help but think that surely a proper cooked breakfast is one of the best things about a Sunday?
Pippa's Sneaky Cooked Breakfast
2 McCain's Hash Browns
1 fillet Smoked Haddock
75ml Cheese Sauce (approx you could make up to 150ml if you wanted!)
A sprinkling of Chives
1 rasher Bacon
Serves 1 hungry Mum after she's done the School Run.
Bake the hash browns in the oven, whilst cooking the Haddock. I normally like to poach my haddock, but as I was using frozen fillets, I baked them all in the oven.
Poach an egg whilst you make up your cheese sauce and cook your bacon. I like to griddle my bacon, but you can grill it or fry it or microwave it or prepare it however you like it best.
When everything is cooked, place your hash browns on the plate, before drizzling over the cheese sauce, placing the haddock on top of that, followed by the poached egg with a drizzle more of Cheese Sauce and then balance the bacon on top along with the Chives.
Season and serve (with a quick instagram photo if you're that way inclined).
We received some McCain's Hash Browns and other food so we could review the new recipe.
