    ♥ Actifry Full English Breakfast ♥

    SYN FREE ON EXTRA EASY. READY IN 20-25 MINUTES & USES LESS POTS/PANS THAN DOING A NORMAL FULL ENGLISH

    Ingredients:
    2 Joe's Sausages
    2-3 rashes of smoked bacon cut into chunks
    1 small potato cut into cubes
    A few mushrooms chopped into chunks
    Half a tin of baked beans
    Half a tin of chopped tomatoes
    1 Egg, poached or fried

    Method:
    I cooked the sausages & potatoes for 10 minutes in the Actifry first of all. Then added the chopped bacon for a further 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms & allow to brown for around 5 minutes.
    Add the baked beans & tomatoes.
    Cook your egg to your liking in a pan & serve altogether.

    ♥ Mmmm yummy homemade chips in only 25 minutes & even better that they are syn free ♥

    All I did was peel 640g worth of potatoes into chips, you can buy crinkle cutters if you want them to look like mine shown in the photo.
    I then put them in the Actifry, sprayed with frylight & left them to cook for 25 minutes.

    Thank you for sharing these recipes - I owned an Actifry for 3 years and all I used it for was to make syn free chips until it blew up. I wasn't going to buy another one but found I really missed it. I gave in and bought another one 2 weeks ago and am determined to make more use of it.

    I'm going to treat myself and give your full engligh breakfast a go on Sunday morning. Keep the recipe's coming.

    If I make anything exciting I will share it with you all.

    If you like "spicy" put some tandoori powder mix into a pepper pot and when you have sprayed the potatoes shake this over them.
    You can add chilli powder if you like them hotter - I also add garlic powder.

    Hi Mrs Wilsoncroft

    Silly question, but what exactly is an Actifry. I have seen so many people raving about them , but I don't know why?

    Hi it's a deep fat fryer without the deep fat. Basically made by tefal, you chop chips and throw in the fryer then spray with fry light or put in a spoon of oil, switch on and chips in 20 mins. You can do roast potatoes, nuggets, scampi, sausages etc. They are about 130 ish, currys have em 113. eBay have new and second hand for 60-150. Hope that helps. Well worth it but pricey. Ps the chips are syn free if using fry light .

    Another question ( from an actifry virgin) Why chose this over frylight plus an oven or frylight plus a frying pan?
