Sundays aren’t just about big roast dinners and falling in to a food induced coma.
They are about breakfast.
I’ve always eaten my breakfast at the table and have endless memories of smelling toast and coffee from my bedroom, tempting me downstairs. I have especially fond memories of Mum singing along to the radio-full pelt-in her dressing gown, waving a butter knife around.
Always an interesting experience for my friends who stayed over!
It was the perfect childhood but do people still do this? I hope so because it’s a process which allows people to just be together and then for the rest of the day, it feels as though you’ve done something worthwhile.
For me, there is nothing better than starting your day with the people you love and with food you love to eat!
What says sharing like omelette?
Sausage omelette with sweet & crunchy apples
2 free-range eggs
2 pork sausages
1 apple-I used Royal Gala
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
a knob of butter
1 teaspoon of fresh rosemary
salt & pepper
a little olive oil
This recipe take about 15 minutes and doesn’t use a lot of ingredients. It’s just perfect for days like these-big families or just the two of you. Food that is wonderfully simple tastes simply wonderful you know…
Peel and chop the apple in to cubes, taking out the core. Place the cubes and the sugar in to a pan on a medium heat.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and chop the sausage up in to pieces-about three per sausage.
Fry until golden on each side.
Check on the apples and shake the pan so that the apples evenly brown and caramelise. Add in the butter.
Whisk the eggs, milk and rosemary together and season well. Pour in the to the frying pan with the meat. Remember to continually check on the apples.
Allow to cook for a minute and with a spatula, push the edges of the omelette to the middle occasionally and tilt the pan so that the rest of the runny egg mix fills in the gaps. Once the omelette is solid, gently flip one side over the other so it’s in half.
Plate the omelette and sprinkle the apples on top and spoon on those wonderfully buttery, sweet juices.
Then, take to the table and start the Sunday sweetly!
