Dee's weekend brunch

This weekend brunch recipe from Dee of Dee's Wholefoods is suitable for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 35 minutes

Servings: 2 people


  • 1 packet Dee’s Traditional Vegan Sausages
  • 40g rocket
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 eggs for poaching
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Knob of butter
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 1 egg (For mixing)
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 floury potatoes, peeled
  • Olive oil
  • 150g cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 25g feta


Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a baking tray with baking paper, place Dee's Traditional Vegan Sausages and cherry tomatoes on the tray, drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, turning the sausages halfway through.

Coarsely grate the potatoes onto a clean tea towel or cloth. Holding the cloth together at the top, squeeze out the liquid from the grated potato over the sink.

Tip the potato into a bowl, add the flour and stir well to coat.

Crack in the egg, season well with sea salt and pepper and mix again until the egg is fully combined.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil and a knob of butter in a frying pan.

Once hot, spoon half of the mixture into one side of the pan and spread out into a circle (approx 10cm) and do the same with the remaining half of the mixture.

Fry on a medium heat for about 4-5 minutes on each side. If the potato is beginning to brown too quickly you can turn the heat down and cook for a little longer.

When cooked, drain on kitchen paper and keep warm in the oven. 

Halve, peel and remove the stones from the avocados. Roughly mash them in a bowl, squeeze over the juice of one lime, season with sea salt and pepper and set aside. 

Perfect poached eggs are easily achieved with just a couple of tablespoons of white wine vinegar added to a pan of water at a rolling boil.

Crack in the eggs from a low height, turn the heat up high to make sure they don’t stick to the bottom of the pan and then immediately turn it down to a simmer.

Cook the eggs for 3-4 minutes for the perfect runny yolk. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

To assemble your brunch, place a hash brown on each plate, top with the crushed avocado and a poached egg.

Add the sausages and roasted tomatoes and finally dress each plate with some rocket and crumbled feta.
