Overnight Breakfast: Sausage, Egg, Mushroom and Tomato


overnight breakfast

Are you are short on time in the mornings and need to wake up to an instant breakfast, but want something nutritious and high in protein to keep you feeling fuller for longer?

If you don’t have a butler, well-trained children or a subservient husband then I recommend investing in a slow-cooker – It’s cheaper, quieter and wont leave its pants on the floor!

This breakfast is OMG amaze-balls!  It is so simple, but there is something about slow cooking that really brings out the flavour in food.  The sugars from the tomatoes start to caramelise into a sweet, sticky sauce.  The mushrooms take on a deep, rich flavour (I recommend using portabello mushrooms) and its worth throwing some money at a good flavoured sausages.

You can buy gluten-free, grain free sausages in the supermarkets. They are not marked as such so you just need to check the ingredients.  Unfortunately it’s usually the more expensive ranges like Tesco Finest or Sainsburys Taste the Difference.

Who knew a high protein, nutritious breakfast could be so simple and so good?

This recipe is:

Snip 14Snip 9Snip 8Snip 5Snip 4Snip 3


Snip 12Serve with bread or toast to mop up the juices or sautéed sweet potato

Snip 10Use a cheaper sausage

Snip 6A sprig of fresh rosemary would be lovely

Snip 2This freezes well for some easy breakfasts, lunches or dinners in the future

Capture Any left over mushrooms can be use in my Mushroom Soup, Protein Smash Fest Stirfry or Quinoa Hash.
