Sunday Breakfast Casserole

Sunday Breakfast Casserole

Raise your hand if you don’t love lazy Sunday breakfasts. My guess is; I won’t see many hands, including mine.

Sunday morning breakfast at my house is for those kind of dishes I don’t have time for during busy weekdays. Heck, on some those days I’m glad if I manage to grab a piece of toast or a cup of coffee on my way out. Not healthy, I know, but realistic.

This beautiful and simple dish is perfect for an indulgent Sunday breakfast. The flavours make so much sense together. The savoury chipolata with the honey & pungent mustard, sweet and tangy roasted tomatoes and eggs with perfect runny yolks and the oniony chives. Yum.

Best part, aside from the fact it’s absolutely delicious and looks summery and cheerful, it’s dead-simple, too. Just a handful ingredients, put it all in a casserole and the oven does the work for you.

 

Ingredients:

8 beef chipolata sausages (or more)
4 large eggs
1/2 pound cherry tomatoes
1 crusty French bread
1 tbsp whole grain mustard
1 tbsp honey
salt & pepper
fresh chives

 

Directions:

 
* Adjust the quantities to suit your family’s needs.
 

Mix the mustard with the honey.

Put the chipolata sausages in a shallow casserole.

Apply the honey mustard to the sausages.

Cut the bigger ones in half and leave the smaller ones whole.

Add the tomatoes to the casserole.

Cook the sausages and tomatoes in a preheated oven at 180C° (355F°) for 15 minutes.
 

Gives you time to get a couple of slices of bread. I added a few to the casserole and served the rest on the side.

Things have browned up a bit after those 15 minutes, and the tomatoes are starting to burst open. Lots of flavor there.

Add the eggs, make sure you keep the yolks whole.

Season them with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sprinkle a little on the tomatoes as well.

Top with a few French bread slices.

Put the casserole back into the oven for about 7 to 10 minutes, until the egg whites have set. Sprinkle finely minced chives all over and serve the rest of the bread slices on the side.
 

So simple, a full casserole breakfast, and so delicious!

Ridiculously Good Roasted Carrots

Looking down on this colourful bunch of carrots I picked up during my last market stroll, while munching on a big bag of French fries drowned in mayonnaise and peanut sauce, I still had no idea where this recipe would take me. I had a vague plan. Oh yes, I did: I was going to turn them into something with a slight Indonesian twist: sweet, fragrant and flavourful, yet still…

Jamaican-Style Chicken Burger

Burger binge! Not that I could ever tire of my comeback burger, but the last thing I need is to get stuck in a burger rut now that June’s around the corner. So I came up with this baby. Here’s what happens when you turn my Jamaican jerk chicken into a Jamaican-style chicken burger. It packs a delicious punch. I toned down the heat making it a bit more family…

Sel de Provence

My love for special spice or salt-mixes is one of the reasons I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. Especially now that I’m growing and drying my own hot peppers and herbs, I tend to go a little overboard. Coming up with new blends is my favourite form of entertainment because there’s no such thing as one seasoned salt to rule them all, well, my beloved Lawry’s comes…

Beef & Asparagus Stir-Fry

Trying to cut back on take-out food. Yes, I know how silly that sounds. I have to admit: I don’t always make the healthiest of choices when I’m ravenous, strapped for time and ordering something online. Anything with melted cheese and 2500 calories is fair game then. Also, it’s pretty expensive—especially in the Netherlands. So I’ve been working on creating several quick dinner ideas. Those are the best, really, good food…

Cube It!

Even though I’m pretty good at rolling sushi the traditional way, if I say so myself, still I got all excited over this bright red and fun gadget I got to test for Fonq. What is it? It’s a rice cube and it’s the best thing out there for sushi loving nori haters. I tolerate nori but am not crazy about it, far from it, which is why I prefer…

Gnocchi & Tomato Bake

I’ve never been a gnocchi fan. There. I’ve said it. In all honesty: I think it’s the most boring food in the world. But my son, well, the kid loves all things even remotely related to Italian food. If it as much as looks Italian, he’ll eat it. Gnocchi isn’t something I’d want to make myself. Granted, home-made does taste somewhat better, but I still find it boring. So now…
