Disclaimer: You are allowed to have this Syn Free Weekend Brunch any day of the week, not just the weekend!
Does this sound like your weekend morning thought process?
- I’m hungry.
- What shall I have for breakfast?
- I deserve something nice, its been a long week.
- No, stop thinking about McDonald’s Breakfasts!
- I should have a bacon/sausage/egg sarnie on my miniature bread.
- I don’t want to use up my healthy extras so early in the day! Damn you tiny loaf slices.
Look no further, here is the delicious Syn Free Weekend Brunch!
This breakfast does take a little while, so that is why I have suggested making it as a weekend brunch. It comprises of fried breakfast potato cubes, fresh baby spinach, sautéed mushrooms, Linda McCartney Red Onion Sausages and baked egg in red pepper.
If you prefer to have some meaty sausage (ha ha), why not add your fave low syn sausages instead? If you are feeling particularly hungry (or hungover), you could upgrade this posh breakfast nosh even further by adding some bacon medallions and baked beans.
Or if you want to stick to the vegetarian option you could add some extra tomatoes, sautéd courgettes or fried onions.
By making tasty breakfast potatoes, you can still get a carby filling and get to save your Healthy Extra b for later in the day (heeeelllllooooooo Alpen Light Cherry Bakewells on my evening treat plate!)
Frylight is your friend for this recipe. It delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower one is ideal for this Syn Free Weekend Brunch.

- Cut your potato into cubes and put in a pan with salted water to boil.
- Cut your red pepper in half right down the middle. Spray with a little Fry Light and crack an egg in. Sprinkle on a little salt and black pepper. My pepper was a little wobbly so I used a sharp knife to level off the bottom. Place in the oven at about 180 degrees. This will need to bake for about 30 minutes for the pepper to soften and the egg to cook.
- Check your sausages for cooking time- you might need to put them in now! If not, make a mental note about when you need to put them in so they are cooked in line with your egg.
- Prepare your mushrooms and arrange your spinach attractively on your plate in preparation for the inevitable Instagram picture.
- When your potato cubes are softened (but not falling apart), drain and dry. Then place them into a non-stick frying pan sprayed liberally with fry light. Fry the cubes adding some salt and pepper, garlic powder and some dried rosemary. If your timings are a little off, bung these in an oven-proof dish and put at the bottom of the oven to keep warm.
- When you have two minutes before you need to take the egg and sausages out, fry your mushrooms in some Fry Light. I prefer the Butter flavour for this.
- Get everything on the plate and devour before anyone else realises you didn't make them any!
