Start your morning with this healthy protein breakfast - delicious Syn Free Baked Egg with Spinach and Tomatoes
This recipe is great for getting speed foods into your breakfast and also freeing up your healthy extra’s if you wish to save them for later in the day. It's filling and really delicious. I like to serve with some Canadian Peameal Bacon, but regular back bacon is fine too. I also often have a side of fruity speed berries because you can never have enough speed foods, right?
Don't just keep this baked egg with spinach and tomatoes just for breakfast, it would also make a great lunch with a salad or you could ever serve it for dinner with some of these Perfect Syn Free Chips.
It is perfectly acceptable to dunk some yummy chips in the yolk of an egg. Actually, it's like one of the best things ever.
and what if you fancy that toast after all? Well, that is perfectly fine too. But sometimes we just want that burger night in the evening and it's nice to have the option of a delicious breakfast that doesn't need to use up any of your healthy extra choices.
It means you can enjoy this Big Mac and Fries Fakeaway - That is totally worth saving your healthy extra b choice for.
Wait!! don't go getting distracted by the amazing burger in that link above, you still need to make this Baked Egg with Spinach and Tomatoes first, because now you really do want to save your healthy extra b choice for later, right?

I like to use fresh tomatoes in this Baked Egg with Spinach and Tomatoes, you can't beat the taste of fresh tomatoes, with their natural sweetness, but if canned is all you have, those are totally fine too.
I do prefer to use fresh spinach, frozen can become a little wet, if you are using spinach, I recommend defrosting and draining any excess water.
Don't fancy bacon? This would be perfect with some low syn or syn free sausages. If you fancy making your own, try these delicious Pork Sausage Breakfast Patties. If you are vegetarian, you can skip the bacon or serve with a veggie sausage or choice. I hear the Linda McCartney Red Onion and Rosemary ones are amazing and syn free too.
