Oven Fry Up
This is the best way to make a full English breakfast even more fun and super easy for a weekend treat. The Oven Fry Up is my family favourite breakfast.
I love a full English breakfast and for a special treat I tend to pop it in the oven. Especially if I’m going to be baking other things during the day. It saves using all the frying pans and making a huge mess in the kitchen. Plus I really believe the finished result tastes so much better. There is something in it being roasted over frying that gives a great flavour.
Oven Fry Up – Full English Breakfast Traybake
There will need to be different times for each thing in the fry up but you can group things together. Sausages go in first for about 10 minutes, then you add everything else apart from the eggs. Then finally the eggs in their little pots for the last few minutes. It requires a little checking but it’s really easy.
Vine ripen tomatoes for the Oven Fry Up
I love using tomatoes on the vineyard for this roast. They look gorgeous in the finished dish and they taste rather wonderful too. Check with your guests who wants tomatoes. As we always all want them we need to add extra to make sure we all get some.
What you need for a fry up?
For a proper fry up you need sausages, bacon, beans, eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes. You can also have hash browns and blood pudding if you really like those too.
You also need some good thick cut toast with lashings of butter too. Then comes the questions – white bread/ brown bread or even the king of breads the sourdough loaf.
How long do bacon rashers take in the oven?
Bacon in the oven can take about 15 minutes. In a large traybake like this it took a little longer and was beautifully crisp on the edges while soft in the centre. It also needed a little longer because of all the other ingredients in the tray also cooking.
Full breakfast ideas
There are a good few ways to cook a full English breakfast. You have frying and saucepans, microwave and of course the oven. I love the oven as you get a more intense flavour… and less washing which is always bonus to me.
What is a cooked breakfast?
Exactly what it sounds like. A breakfast which is cooked and for the United Kingdom it usually has to incorporate a few key ingredients including bacon, tomato, eggs and beans. There are more lavish options like hash browns, blood pudding and vine ripened tomatoes.
Oven English breakfast
Cooking a full English breakfast is made even easier when you pop it all in the oven. An oven English breakfast is delicious and there does seem to be a more wonderful flavour given off when cooked this way.
How to cook bacon and sausage in the oven
Sausages and bacon are really easy to cook in the oven. I would recommend cooking them in shifts. Cook the sausages first and when they are approaching golden brown add the bacon. You will need to turn the bacon over after a few minutes. As soon as they are done they are ready to serve.
How long to sausages take in the oven?
I wish there was an easy way to cook it all without adding things at different times but this works really well to produce a great dinner. The little pots are great for adding in at different times. Plus it’s worth it for how the finished breakfast looks. I love placing the big tray down in the middle of the table and allowing people to take out what they want. An oven English breakfast is a wonderful way to cook this recipe. The sausages when cooked in the oven take on a stronger taste and I don’t know why I definitely prefer them like this. Maybe from having the heat around cooking them, instead of just from the bottom. I don’t know the magic but it definitely exist.
Before and After – oven fry up
I place everything in the dish before I cook it so I know it will fit. I find it helps so I don’t find out half way through cooking that I need another dish. Rookie mistake but it’s worth making sure it all fits. If it doesn’t then use multiple trays. Sometimes I put the little ramekins on a baking tray if I have more bacon and sausages to cook for more people.
I love seeing how gorgeous the fry up looks after being oven roasted. An oven English breakfast will be your new favourite thing! Adding the butter to the mushrooms keeps them really soft and having the eggs ready to be added at the right time makes sure they are still delicious. If they are cooked too much they can go a bit rubbery. It’s great to be able to make something in one dish ready for you. If you need feed a few people you might need to do two oven proof trays. For three this was big enough.
