You can’t beat a cooked breakfast of bubble and squeak with fried eggs and Lincolnshire sausages in a tasty tomato sauce.
Serves: 4
Costs: Cheap as chips


    • 8 Lincolnshire sausages
    • Salt and ground black pepper
    • 2tbsp vegetable oil
    • 4 eggs

For the tomato sauce:

    • 400g can chopped tomatoes
    • 2-3 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
    • ½-1 red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
    • 1tsp dark muscovado sugar

For the bubble and squeak:

    • 2 large potatoes (about 600g/1¼lb), peeled and quartered
    • ¼ Savoy cabbage (about 150g/5oz), stem removed, thinly sliced


    1. To make the tomato sauce, put all the ingredients into a pan, bring to the boil, and simmer for 10 mins until thickened. Whizz to a smooth sauce using a stick blender.
    1. To make the bubble and squeak, add the potatoes to a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil, cook for 15 mins, then put the cabbage on the top to steam for 5 mins or until potatoes are tender. Drain well using a colander and leave in the colander.
    1. Meanwhile, cook the sausages slowly in a frying pan, with half the oil, for 15 mins. Take out and keep them warm.
    1. Put the rest of the oil in the frying pan on high heat. When sizzling, tip in the potato and cabbage mixture. Squash it with a fork and cook for 4-5 mins, so that it starts to form a crust. Mash it around with the fork, and cook for another 5 mins. Season well.
    1. Fry the eggs in a non-stick pan, without using fat then serve the bubble and squeak from the pan, with the sausages, eggs and warm sauce.
