Incredible. Just incredible. As we travelled Australia, we got inspired by the healthier brunch options. We had a veggie fry up and it was pretty good with likes of avocado and sourdough etc – just missed the meat! 🤣 So, we replaced the Sourdough for coconut-flour dusted Sweet Potato Fries which are so incredibly tasty whilst being health-boosting. Wow. Then, naturally, we added some caramelised red onion finest sausages into the mix and poached our eggs. I’m salivating just thinking back at this meal. Throw in fresh Avocado, grilled Baby Plum Tomatoes and some exotic mushrooms and that you have is the best (yet healthiest) fry up you will ever have! A bold statement, but isn’t overstated in my opinion. 😋
For a smaller lower calorie option without sacrificing the taste combo, reduce the Sweet Potato to 200g, drop to two eggs and two sausages and reduce your Butter and Rice Bran Oil by half. This will save you 476 calories.
