  1. Heat the grill to high. Heat the oil in a medium-sized, non-stick frying pan, add the mushrooms and fry over a high heat for 3 mins. Squeeze the sausagemeat out of their skins into nuggets, add to the pan and fry for a further 5 mins until golden brown. Add the garlic and asparagus and cook for another 1 min.

  2. Whisk the eggs, soured cream, mustard and tarragon in a jug. Season well, then pour the egg mixture in to the pan. Cook for 3-4 mins, then grill for a further 1-2 mins or until the top has just set with a slight wobble in the middle. Serve with the salad leaves, if you like.

I actually found this recipe quick, easy and utterly delicious! I have my own eggs, I had sausages in the freezer. I would say the chestnut mushrooms were essential as their flavour was fantastic, but apart from that you could add any veg. I had no tarragon, neither fresh nor dried, but it didn’t miss it. Adding sour cream and mustard to the egg was something I hadn’t tried before and the whole thing was delicious. Just a little bit of inspiration for something different, but very easy and you can’t really do much harm to it by not following it rigidly. I will definitely do this again.

Timing for prep is unrealistic. A meal of sausages and scrambled egg with some asparagus on the side would have more delicious without all the faff. Not a recipe I will be making again.
