Ditch the Diet Breakfast

Ditch the Diet Breakfast means bacon, sausage, cheese and any other unhealthy things that have been banned from meal time #NutsandBolts4Breakfast

At Midas Randburg we believe a full man is a happy man. There is nothing better than an amazing breakfast after a good night’s rest. If you need any tools for that DIY project to work that breakfast off, come and see us www.midasrandburg.co.za | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg.

Breakfast has always been the man’s meal. It’s usually men who are in charge of whipping up glorious fire cooked breakfasts on camping trips, and dad who’s flipping pancakes on Saturday morning. I’m not sure why this is. Maybe the hard working cowboys and frontiersmen of yesteryear understood the value of a hearty breakfast in the morning and always gave that meal extra attention. Perhaps back in the day when women were expected to make dinner, cooking breakfast on the weekend was a way for the man to take a turn in the kitchen. Maybe it’s because men have always had an affinity for greasy spoon establishments and have a deep appreciation for the diner breakfast.

Or maybe it’s just because we love sausage and bacon.

Most likely it has to do with the nature of breakfast food. It’s simple and straightforward-never fancy or fussy. There are no five star gourmet breakfast restaurants, no wine pairings with your pancakes, and no foie gras omelets. Breakfast is food without affectation.

At any rate, men love breakfast. We love to make it and we love to eat it.

And there’s no better time for a good breakfast than the winter months. It’s cold, dark, and dreary, and you want something in the morning that will stick to your ribs and fuel your day. Food so hearty and tasty that the anticipation of it actually gets you out of bed in the morning.

Portuguese Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casseroles are awesome. Their possibilities are limited only by your imagination. They can accommodate any combination of eggs, vegetables, meat, and bread; you can thus concoct one from anything you have hanging out in the fridge. But if you want a specific recipe, here’s a good one.

Prep: 20 minutes, Bake: 40 minutes

Serves 6 people or 1 SOUTH AFRICAN


500g of Portuguese Chorizo sausage, thinly sliced or thickly depending on your preference

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped red pepper

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1 finely diced jalapeno pepper – Or more if you like your food spicy

1 medium tomato, diced

6 large eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon Robertson Portuguese seasoning

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

dash of hot sauce – The more the better,

4 slices bread torn in 5cm pieces

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

salt and pepper


Heat oven to 200 degrees. Butter a baking dish.

  1. In a large skillet, cook sliced sausage with the onion and bell peppers until vegetables are translucent. As they near completion, throw in the tomatoes and let them cook a minute or two.
  2. Whisk eggs with milk in a bowl with the Portuguese seasoning, pepper, and any other spices you want to use. Add a few dashes of hot sauce to taste.
  3. Arrange the torn bread over the bottom of the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with the sausage and vegetables. Top with cheddar cheese and then pour the egg mixture evenly over the top.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned.
