Every year one of my New Year’s resolutions is to post a new recipe on my blog each week. And every year, I don’t ever manage it! Time just flies, not only do I write this blog and post on the associated social media accounts, namely Instagram, Twitter, Facebook & Pinterest, but I also work full time as a Science Teacher, tutor science part-time and since October we took on a cockapoo puppy called Louis named after our favourite documentary filmmaker, Mr Theroux! He’s a handful, but we couldn’t be without him!
So I’ve decided to cut myself some slack and post when I’m not too stressed, I’m feeling inspired or I’ve made something so tasty, yet low FODMAP, that I just have to share it! Here is my new recipe inspired by my colleague at work who was having a similar recipe for lunch! I used The Jolly Hog sausages which are gluten, onion and garlic free, then topped with lots of peppers, cheese and egg!
- 400 g Sausages (The Jolly Hog Proper Porker Sausages)
- 6 Eggs
- 200 g Mixed peppers I used red and orange
- 2 Tomatoes
- 15 g Fresh basil
- 100 g Cheddar cheese grated
- Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 or 200 degrees celsius.
- Remove the sausagemeat from the casings and squash down into the base of an ovenproof dish.
- Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, chop the pepper and tomatoes and fry in a little oil (you could use garlic-infused oil if you prefer).
- Whisk the eggs in a bowl and season well.
- Stir in the cheddar cheese and torn basil leaves.
- Place the peppers on top of the sausage base and cover with the egg mixture.
- Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden. Serve with a light salad.
This recipe is nice and quick to make, requires little preparation and provides plenty for leftovers. To make it more tummy-friendly, you can swap the cheddar cheese for lactose-free cheddar or even vegan cheese for dairy free diets. You could also use vegetarian sausages (but I’m yet to find any decent low FODMAP alternatives).
Let me know if you give my sausage-based quiche a try, I really genuinely enjoy seeing you recreating my low FODMAP meals. And if you like this recipe, you may also like my Breakfast Frittata. A similar egg-based dish perfect for a weekend brunch!
