Homemade Big Breakfast

It seems to be in fashion now to serve an all day big breakfast on weekends at cafes. As far as I know, La Bodega Deli in Bangsar has been serving this some years back and it is very popular. A big breakfast is an English breakfast of eggs, sausages, bacon, sauteed mushroom, tomato, toasts served with coffee/tea and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. All these for round about of rm25++ (I can't recall the exact amount). It has since caught on with many cafes like Dome Cafe, Delicious Cafe, right down to Pizza Uno serves similar big breakfast.

Actually to think about it, one could actually recreate the breakfast right at home at a fraction of the price. I sort of did just that, well not intentional, else I would have gotten the appropriate ingredients to complete the big breakfast. One Sunday morning, I found a pack of fresh button mushroom in my fridge drawer which I had forgotten to add into my Stewed Lamb Shank the day before so I need to do something with them ASAP hahaha must be getting old... duh!

Since I'm not cooking lunch or dinner that Sunday, looks like I need to use it for breakfast... I checked my fridge again... I have enough eggs, some skiny sausages that my brother gotten from China (Don't ask me why he bought them!!! A bit mad to carry them back.) during one of his business trip, and a pack of Meidi-ya's English muffins.

Got on to work by first frying the sausages in some olive oil. Dish them up. Once done, melted some butter in the same pan and poured in a bit of milk. Cracked in the eggs and stirred to make scrambled eggs. Split them into two plates. Sliced the muffins into halves and toast a bit in the same pan. Placed the muffins onto the serving plates. Next, I chopped some garlic and fry them with some olive oil. Placed in sliced button mushrooms and stir fry a bit. Crack in some black pepper and a sprinkle of sea salt to taste. Pour them into the serving plates.

Squeezed some oranges for the juice, since I don't take coffee... I omitted that. There, my version of big breakfast, minus the tomato and bacon, oh yeah and coffee. The portion managed to serve myself, hubby and boiboi too... all in less than RM50 definitely!

Have you tried bacon, pancake and maple syrup before. I've watch Nigella do it b4, and I've tried it. Not bad. Everytime I make English brekky for the family, I will also add in the bacon and maple syrup.
