Healthy Fry Up

March 10, 2014

Fry Up

So I was talking to a good friend of mine who is a dancer currently on tour.  We were having a discussion about good British food and he started telling me how much he missed British fry ups but couldn’t have them even if he wanted because they are so fattening.  I explained to him that a fry up is so easy to make that it is not difficult to substitute the ingredients with more diet friendly additions.  My fry up was pretty simple but feel free to make your own changes.  As long as you are satisfied. 🙂

This recipe was adapted from Silvana Franco’s The Ultimate Student Cookbook (Murdoch Books, 2007).
