One handed breakfasts are perfect. This recipe is easy to serve as a breakfast in bed or on the run.
By Tania Cusack
Breakfast in bed isn’t just for Mum, Dad’s love it too! There are no girly pancakes or fruit salads and neither is there Bircher muesli or French toast. This is a hold in one hand while reading the paper ( or ipad) kind of breakfast. The kind your Dad might like. Mostly, when we think about breakfast in bed, lets face it usually involves Mum. This is quite definitely a Dad breakfast. There will be crumbs, yes of course and lots of them and maybe drips of tomato sauce. This breakfast roll with it’s garlic-y cheesy sausage and it’s egg-y filled insides will be just what a Dad needs in bed and if he doesn’t eat it while laying down he can eat it on the run. This is one for the whole family.
- 4 Pane de Casa Rolls. (or another nice firm roll)
- 6 eggs
- ½ cup of heavy cream
- 1- 1½ cups of pizza cheese- or a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar cheese
- 3 Cheese or plain kransky sausage or hot dogs (or another part cooked sausage)
- Salt and pepper
- Make an incision into the top of each roll making it wide enough to pull out some of the bread in the centre. This will leave a kind of little bread shoe that will be filled with cheese and egg mixture
- Put the rolls onto the oven tray and prepare the filling
- Thickly slice the sausages so that you have enough for 3-4 slices for each roll
- Whip the whole eggs together in a bowl with the cream and salt and pepper.
- Start by filling the rolls with sausage and cheese, then egg by putting a slice of sausage into each roll at the very end standing up. Follow this with a pinch of cheese. This will help the sausage slices stay in place. Follow this with another slice of sausage and some cheese and continue till the rolls have at least 3 slices of sausage each.
- Press down on the cheese a little so that when you pour the egg in it has room inside the bread roll.
- Pour the egg into a jug and fill each roll with some of the egg mixture. If you don't have a jug use a spoon. Press the mixture a bit with your fingers so that as much egg as possible fits in without moving the sausages around.Clean up some of the egg spillage so your rolls dont stick to the tray.
- Bake for 15 minutes for fan forced and 20 for conventional or till done to your liking.
