Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a roasting tin about the size of A4 paper with enough baking parchment to cover the base and sides. Fry the sausages and bacon in a non-stick pan until golden, stirring them often to stop them sticking. Scoop into the tin.
  2. Place the pan back on the heat and fry the mushrooms for about 5 mins until golden, then add these to the tray, too. Whisk the egg whites with the milk and lots of seasoning. Pour into the tin, then dot the tomatoes on top.
  3. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins, until set. Meanwhile, tip the beans into a pan with the paprika and heat through. Scatter the frittata with the chives and serve with the beans on the side.

I cook this in muffin tins so it's a grab and go breakfast. It's delicious and very filling. I use whole eggs not egg whites which makes it taste like a real fry up.

Really loved this! I used Quorn sausages and bacon to make it vegetarian and thought it worked really well. Also loved the beans! Instead of 8 egg whites I added 6 whites and 2 whole eggs. Will make again!

Add some cooked potato, sage, rosemary and or thyme and definitely miss out the beans.

This recipe is tastes better with whole eggs. It is labled as healthy as it does not contain egg yolk which is high in cholesterol. If you want a fried breakfast, don't bother with this.

This was great and my boyfriend loved it for dinner, i did use whole eggs but only 6, had some left over for lunch with a salad next day.

Used whole eggs instead of just whites, very tasty indeed went down very well, only problem i found is that it stuck to paper, but easy meal and more feeling than a fry up.

I will make this, because it's a good way to make a full English breakfast, but I'll use whole eggs. If you're worried about cholesterol in eggs, read the British Heart Foundation's web page.

Liked this very much but couldn't see the point of just using 8x egg whites so I used the whole eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and seasoning. I cooked the sausages and bacon separately.
A tasty alternative to the usual full English.

This was delicious and went down very well with our guests - I'll definitely make it again. I used venison sausages to reduce the fat content but kept in 2 egg yolks for a bit of colour. I also added some spring onions.

We enjoyed this recipe but I did find the texture a bit strange. Might try adding whole egg next time.
