English Breakfast stir fry recipe

This is really just a chuck it in the pan recipe. I first made this recipe when i was feeling a little worse for wear on a Sunday morning. I tell you something! This must be the BEST hangover cure there is! lol! Another reason i like this recipe as a refreshing change from a full English breakfast as there is hardly any washing up to do afterwards. It really is sometimes the one thing that puts me off a homemade breakfast, is all the effort that goes into all of the preparation, timing and tidying up. As if you can really be bothered after a good weekend! :-)

You will need:- for 2 people

A big wok / large frying pan. (but a wok works best)
2 medium potatoes cubed
2 small onions or 1 medium or 1/2 large roughly chopped
4 rashers of bacon roughly chopped
2 eggs
1/2 tsp paprika (this is what i use as it really does make the dish. Black pepper in this dish is fine if you don't have any paprika but a pinch black pepper is all that is needed)
1 tbs oil
(no added salt should be needed as you are cooking the bacon in the same pan.)


1)Heat the oil in the wok on a medium heat and add the potatoes.

2)Fry covered for about 10 minutes, giving it a couple of stirs in that time. you need to fry the potatoes quite a bit because the other ingredients don't take very long to cook.

3)When the potatoes are browning nicely, add the bacon and the onion. Stir fry everything until nice and crispy.

4)Turn the heat down to low and add the paprika and mix everything really well

5)Push everything over to one side, Crack the egg into the pan and let it gently fry until nearly done and then give it a bit of a scramble in the pan, trying to keep it like a cross between scrambled and a fried egg.

6)When the egg is cooked, mix it all together and serve hot with a dollop of tomato sauce. Enjoy!
