Breakfast for 50

Part 2 of budget cooking for 50 – breakfast. Menu: scrambled eggs, sausages, grilled tomatoes, toast. (sorry but hash browns too fiddly).

Scrambled eggs: allow 2.5 eggs per person. So that’s 11 dozen eggs.  Find 2 massive casserole pots, and break half the eggs into each.  Using an electric handheld mixer, beat the eggs, and add in 5 teaspoons of salt into each as well as the same of cracked black pepper. Mix in 300ml of thickened cream (or full fat milk if you’re watching your weight ;) ).

Start the sausages on a BBQ - 2 per person.  Turn on the oven to 180degrees, and cut the tomatoes in half (across the width).  Lay them in a single layer, cut side up on a tray. Sprinkle salt and pepper, and splash olive oil over them as well as mixed herbs, and some salt and pepper. Place in the oven and baked until soft.

When the sausages and tomatoes are being cooked, put the pots of eggs on the stove on medium, and stir, while scraping the cooked egg from the bottom, until it’s almost cooked.  Take off the heat, and stir in half a bunch of finely chopped parsley or chives.  It should take around 20minutes as there is so much there.

Hopefully by then, the sausages and tomatoes will be ready, and hopefully you will have around 6 loaves of bread, or 50 english muffins toasted for you by anohter little helper, in which case you can line up everything ready for people to help themselves buffet style :)
