This morning for Father’s Day we made my dad a Traditional British Breakfast, which I wanted to share with you.  My little sister Laura studied abroad in London last summer and came back and made this for us and we all loved it!  It consists of British breakfast beans, “poached” eggs, baked tomatoes, stewed mushrooms, and bacon.  We also served some Arabic biscuits with our meal, since my Dad likes those, even though they do not go with the British theme!

My Dad, with his Father’s Day Breakfast!

This breakfast is actually really easy to make, it just has a lot of components!  For the breakfast beans, we just buy Heinz Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce, which you can buy at Wegmans or on Amazon.  These are just some beans in a light tomato sauce.  I thought this was so weird when she brought them home, but they are actually quite delicious!  For the eggs, we actually ran out of burners on our stove, so to “poach” them, we baked them in a cupcake pan.  They came out beautifully!  The tomatoes and mushrooms are simple recipes that I will share and are super easy to make!

British Baked Tomatoes

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 plumb tomatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.  Quarter the tomatoes and lay them out in a glass baking dish.  Drizzle the olive oil on top, and sprinkle the salt and pepper.  Bake for about 20 minutes and they are ready to serve!!  These are super yummy!!!

Serves: 6, WW P+ : 0!
