Recipe - Sausagemeat and Pineapple Breakfast Muffins
If you're getting bored of cereal, porridege or whatever you are having for breakfast - try this as an alternative on a weekend morning.
It will take you a little bit longer to whip up than just pouring milk over some cereal, but it will be worth it.
I'm sure you will have seen something like this in one or more of the fast food chains. The added bonus with these is that you don't have to get dressed and get outside to get them. Also, you can have them as late as you want without some pimply faced youth telling you that it's too late in the day for breakfast.
I used a frying ring both to the patties as well as to fry the egg in. That way I got a somewhat uniform size to it all. I tried to make the patties a bit thinner so that would make about 8 muffins, if you go for fatter patties you'll probably end up with 4 or so. The egg is optional but adds some extra goodness to it all.
The sausagemeat already has a bit of seasoning so it doesn't really need any added salt and pepper either.
Ingredients (makes 4 -8 muffins)
4 - 8 English muffins, sliced in half
450g pork sausagemeat
80 - 100g pineapple chunks
Drain and finely chop the pineapple. Mix the pineapple and sausagemeat in a bowl.
Make patties out of the sausagemeat mix and fry on a medium heat on both sides until done. Remove from the heat as they're done and keep warm.
If you are using the eggs, fry them to your liking.
Toast the cut sides of the muffins, spread with butter if you want to, and stack on the patties and eggs. Add any condiments you like.
