Weightwatchers Sunday "Fry up"

Sunday brunch for those lazy days 

Nothing wakes you up on a Sunday morning like the smell of a fry wafting up the stairs at you.  You still can, even on WeightWatchers. 

Well if there was one food that I really missed when I started my Weightwatchers journey was the Fry up.  

Especially seen as I felt that I really needed it after lets called it a "boogie night" as soakage.  That's my word and I'm sticking to it. 

You see Sunday's pose the problem where most people would sleep late that day and have the big breakfast and then one more meal that evening.  

However, on the first few weeks on Weightwatchers, whereby most of us are at the most regimental stage of the program, this is not a problem, however after a couple of weeks 
you have actually ventured outside of the WeightWatchers bubble for a night out, the next day poses the problem of craving the "fry".

Well, now I don't crave it, I have, I just do it WeightWatchers style and I've still been able to keep on track by changing a few things on what i call a fry and by simply not frying it with oil or frytex, sorry to even mention it.

Now I love a dippy egg but I usually need a lot of bread for it, this being one of my many food problems.  

If your like me, hard boil your eggs so no dippy problems or soft boil them and have with soldiers using calorie controlled bread.  

Weightwatchers Propoints per Serving 9
Weightwatchers Propoints per Recipe 18
Serves 2


4 Mallow Lighter Moments Sausages
6 Denny Instant Rashers or 4 reduced fat medallion rashers
2 medium eggs 
1 small punnet of mushrooms
8 cherry tomatoes 
Half an onion thinly sliced 
2 Adli soft bread rolls 
Spray oil and 10g of Weightwatchers Spread available in Dunnes Stores)
Salt and Pepper


In a large sauce pan, mist with spray oil and when the pan is hot add in the onion and allow to brown over a medium heat.

In the meantime over a medium heat on the grill place the sausages and grill until brown and turning so that there evenly cooked.

After you turn the sausages for the first time place the rashers on the grill.  Or if your using the Denny instant rashers wait, because these literally take 10 seconds to cook. 

Cook the onions until soft and browning.  Remove from the pan and place unto a plate and store in a warming oven so they they keep warm. 

Check the rashers and sausages and keep turning.

Add the mushrooms, tomatoes and salt and pepper.  Cook until the tomatoes start to char and the mushrooms change colour,  remove from the pan and place on the warm plate. 

Mist the pan with more spray oil and break the eggs unto the pan and cook until desired. 

Plate up 2 sausages and 2 rashers per person, 1 egg and as much tomato, mushrooms and onions as you choose.

You can half each bun and dry fry the open part of the bread if you choose and then spread some Weightwatchers Margarine on each side. 

Serve and eat with a nice cup of coffee. 

Enjoy the Niptuck way, so you don't have too!
