Bake the sausages and the tomato for 10 minutes. Turn off the oven, but do not remove the sausages and tomato. 6. Meanwhile, in the frying pan used to brown the sausages, melt a tablespoon of butter and fry the bacon, hash browns and the mushrooms over a high heat for 7 minutes until the mushrooms have softened, the bacon begins to crisp and the hash browns turn golden. Transfer to the oven to keep warm. 7. In a small saucepan over a medium heat, add the beans and stir frequently. 8. Finally, fry the egg with the yolk unbroken to desired consistency and toast the bread. Use the remainder of the butter to spread over the toast. 9.

Season well, garnish with parsley and serve immediately with a generous side of Mrs Ball's Chutney!
