Easy like Sunday morning

Fancy a cooked breakfast occasionally and finding that your IBS symptoms are getting in the way? Then perhaps try this version, which is lower in fat than a ‘good old fry up’ and lower in fodmaps and therefore shouldn’t be too hard on your digestive system. Choose a wheat free bread that is <3g/100g of total fat, if you can. If you choose a bread that is lower in fat you can save calories, help your symptoms and the dish would come in at around 320 Kcal per portion – not too bad for a tasty breakfast! The added herbs gives the dish a nice flavour and added some vibrancy to the dish. If you choose a different aged ham or salami then check the label to ensure it doesn’t contain any fodmaps such as onion and garlic and is a lean meat. I found I didn’t need to add any salt to this dish as the ham provided plenty.

Ingredients

1 slice of wholegrain wheat free bread

1 slice of Serrano ham (trim any excess fat)

1 egg

Chives and thyme to serve.

Method

Add the bread to a plate and top with the Serrano ham, you can warm the bread and ham if you wish before you use it, but I didn’t bother.

Dry fry the egg or use a little 1 Kcal spray oil to the pan if you don’t have a non stick frying pan.

Cook the egg – then add on the top of the ham and sprinkle with chopped herbs. This works just as well with poached egg or scrambled – depending on your preference! Serves one.
