Food: Breakfast Bake

Fatty Wants a Biscuit Breakfast Bake

I've often found that breakfast is one of the biggest ruts I find myself in, especially when trying to lose weight. (The joys of weight loss eh?)

I think it's because often I'm trying to find something that doesn't take too long to make, but that's also on plan AND will keep me going through the day,

I know, I do ask for a lot, but hey, I'm a growing girl after all...

As I thought some of you may be in the same boat, I thought I'd share with you this recipe, which I must say, is pretty "bangin'" (I hear that's what the cool kids say these days.)

Fatty Wants a Biscuit Breakfast Bake

It's a Make Ahead breakfast, that is one of those recipes that basically  uses up everything you have lying around in your fridge and makes a taste sensation.

It also involves cheese, and will all know that anything with melted cheese on is infinitely better than anything without melted cheese on.

I made this on a Meal Prep Sunday then shoved it in the freezer, defrosted overnight then microwaved in the morning and it tasted just a delish as before.

I also served mine with a side of scrambled egg, 'cause it is a Breakfast Bake afterall....

So I hope you enjoy, and if you fancy it, I've also put some added 'make it tastier/make it your own' options at the bottom.

You're welcome!

This recipe is synfree if using your cheese as HEXA, otherwise it would be 6 syns. If you're following No Count/Filling and Health the only points would be in the cheese, which you can measure/alter at your own discretion. 


Serves 4

4 medium potatoes
Fry Light
1 punnet of mushrooms
6 bacon medallions 
1 punnet of plum tomatoes/cherry tomatoes/ can of chopped tomatoes
1 tin of baked beans
1 tsp of Spicentice Chipolte rub (optional)*
160g Light cheese 

1. Chop up your potatoes into chunks then pop it into the microwave for 3-5 minutes.
2. Chop up your mushrooms, bacon and tomatoes (if not using tinned).
3. Heat a pan over the hob then add some FryLight.
4. Add your potatoes and season with salt and pepper and fry for a couple of minutes.
5. Add the bacon and mushrooms and fry until the bacon is cooked.
6. Add the tomatoes and fry for a couple of minutes.
7. Pour over the beans and stir in the Spicentice Chipoltle rub then cover with a lid for 5 minutes.
8. Grate the cheese and once the potatoes feel soft pour the mixture from the pan into an oven dish.
9. Top with the grated cheese and cook in a preheated oven for around 20-25 mins (until the cheese is melted to your liking).
10. Dish up and serve. 

*Make it your own*

1) You could easily add in some Heck sausages if you're willing to add some syns.
2) Before you pop the cheese on top, once the mix is in the dish you could crack in a few eggs, then cover with the cheese. I sadly don't like eggs with yolks, but if I did I would totes do this - be careful if you're serving this to a pregnant lady though.
3) Use whatever cheese you fancy out of your HEX A allowance. I used Asda 50% cheese which you get a lot for. 
4) If you want even more flavour, dice an onion finely and fry with some chopped garlic before you add the potatoes.
5) Add whatever veg you have lurking in your fridge, after all the speedier the better, right?

* I was very kindly sent some Spicentice products to try. I was not asked to blog or mention any of their products nor was I given any money to. Like with anything I mention on my blog, I geniunely think they're fab products :)
