With Father’s Day nearly upon us, we have only a few days to grab Dad a special little something to let him know how much we care. Whether Dad’s an outdoor kinda guy, a Whiskey lover, a bookworm or an adrenaline junkie, a quick search on the internet will pull up loads of fab gifts.
But maybe you’ve left it just that little bit too late and missed the delivery cut offf or you can’t get into town and didn’t fancy buying him anything from the local supermarket, then getting creative in the kitchen might just be the answer. Cooking a delicious meal for your old man is sure to wow him and let him know how grateful you are that he’s your Pop!
How about this BBC Good Food Great British breakfast bap to start the day? It’s super easy and will go down a treat!
2 tbsp sunflower oil
4 pork or veggie sausages
3 handfuls frozen chips
4 rashers smoked back bacon or meat free slices
4 large floury soft white baps
400g can baked beans
butter, ketchup and brown sauce, to serve
Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Use 1 tbsp of the oil to lightly grease a large, shallow roasting tin. Scatter the chips over two-thirds of the tin and line the sausages up on the other third. Cook for 20 mins, then toss the chips around, turn the sausages and return to the oven 10 mins more until the chips are golden and the sausages browned. Push everything together to make room in the tin, then lay the bacon rashers in the space and return to the oven for 10-15 mins or until the bacon fat is crisp and sizzling.
Five mins before the bacon is ready, heat the remaining 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan and fry the eggs however you like them. Heat the beans in a saucepan or in a microwave.
Split the baps so they are still hinged at one edge. Butter and sauce as you like, split each sausage lengthways and, building from the bottom up, layer the chips, sausage, bacon and egg. Present the bap open for extra sauce and to keep the yolk intact. Serve small pots of beans on the side for dipping and spooning over.
And remember to clean up after yourself and don’t leave it for Dad!!
