Whenever I make this for breakfast, my daughter has to grab a fork and come share. She won’t accept her own plate. I suppose it has now become kind of routine. I don’t mind though, if it means she eats some vegetables that should would not normally eat.
This is alsoa great dish to make up a big pan of in advance and then tub up and just heat up each morning. Occasionally I will serve with eggs but sometimes we have it just as it is.
- 1 butternut squash peeled and chopped
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 large zucchini sliced lengthways and chopped
- ½ red pepper finely chopped
- 5 mushrooms chopped
- few handfuls of spinach
- 455 g of extra lean ground pork 1lb
- 1 tsp of salt
- ½ tsp of black pepper
- ½ tsp of paprika
- ½ tsp of ground sage
- 1 tablespoon of ghee or oil of choice
- Preheat oven to 200c or 400f (gas mark 6)
- Place butternut squash in an oven proof dish, toss with the ghee, sprinkle with paprika and place in the oven and roast for 30 mins
- Remove from oven - add zucchini (courgette), onion, mushrooms, red pepper, mix all together and add back to the oven and cook for a further 15 mins.
- Remove from oven and set aside.
- Place ground pork, salt, pepper, paprika and ground sage in a food processor and pulse a few times until it all comes together.
- Heat a frying pan over a medium high heat, drizzle with a little oil, add the sausage mix and fry till browned, breaking up into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon.
