The kids love breakfast for dinner and my Breakfast Tray Bake does everything in one pan with loads of flavour and very little washing up. I use Scoville Neverstick oven trays because they are totally amazing and you need very little oil because food actually doesn’t stick to the surface. Whichever pan you use make sure it’s a big one so that the potatoes can crisp up. If they are too close to each other they steam rather than roast. I use reduced sodium and fat sausages for the kids; they look ugly but they taste yum.
If Paul and I are eating too I make an additional tray. I take as much of the papery skin off the garlic as I can (you can squeeze the cloves out of the garlic more easily when you get rid of lots of the papery skin at the start) and I cut the shallot into quarters then leave both in the tray to mix with the potatoes because they’re delicious.
Serves 2 Kids
2 medium sized potatoes (250-300g)
1 head of garlic
1 large shallot
handful of small tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
- Pre-heat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan) with a shelf in the middle of the oven. Peel the potatoes then cut into cubes that are 1-2cm big. Scatter the potatoes in a large baking tray then add the sausages. Cut the top off the bulb to expose the cloves and remove the excess paper skin then add to the tray, this is the flavour bomb of the dish.
- Peel the shallot and leave the base in tact then cut some slits into the shallot to expose more flavour then add to the tray, drizzle over the olive oil and give everything a good toss to coat.
- Make sure the garlic is clove side down in the pan and the potatoes are evenly spread out then put the tray into the hot oven for 20 minutes. While it’s cooking cut the tomatoes in half.
- Take the tray out of the oven and turn the heat down to 170°C (150°C fan). Give the pan a shake or use a spoon to move the potatoes around so they colour evenly. Remove the garlic and shallot.
- Divide the ingredients into two and move them to diagonal corners then scatter the tomato halves over the potatoes. Divide the beans between the two portions then crack the eggs into the centre of the tray .
- Pop the tray back into the oven for 5 minutes. The whites will cook, the yolks should be dippy and the tomatoes soft.
