Sausage Hash

This looks and feels naughty, but is less than 250 calories per portion if serving between 4 people

Sausage Hash is the first recipe I’ve tried from Lorna Cooper’s Feed your Family for £20 a week book and she also runs a very popular Facebook group based around the same concept. Although I’ve not put Lorna’s budget-saving ideas to the test yet, this particular breakfast dish can be made for less than 50p per portion.

But 2 sausages, 2 tomatoes, an onion and a tin of diced new potatoes (or 4 cooked potatoes) doesn’t stretch particularly far between four people, and I’ll confess that I ended up making this for just me and my teenage son Will when I was feeling hungover one morning! The addition of the grated cheese on top totally hit the spot and I’d have no hesitation in making this again, whether I was feeling delicate or not!

Prep time: Approx 10 mins

  • 1 tbsp oil for frying
  • 2 sausages (removed from their skins)
  • 1 onion (diced)

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Heat the oil in an oven-safe frying pan. Fry the sausages, breaking them up with a wooden spoon (as you would if you were browning mince) until cooked. Add the onion and cook for two minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for another two minutes. Add the potatoes and the garlic powder and stir well. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally.

Sprinkle the cheese on top and then place the pan under a hot grill until browned and the cheese melted. Remove and scatter the parsley.
