Special Breakfast Tomatoes

Special Breakfast Tomatoes
When I was a child, Special Breakfast was a meal we'd have when we were camping in Wales, it's a rich tomatoey sauce with pieces of bacon, sausage and mushroom (yuk!) in it. I've distilled it down to just the tomato sauce component, which is a great side to have with sausages, bacon, eggs, hash browns and, of course, black pudding. 
Special Breakfast Tomatoes
tomatoes, garlic, breakfast accompaniment


Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 beef OXO stock cubes
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1/2tsp worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to season


  1. Heat the oil in a small saucepan - I use a small Le Creuset casserole as it distributes the heat well
  2. Whilst the oil's heating, thinly slice the garlic
  3. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for a minute, don't let the garlic burn though!
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes to the pan and stir well
  5. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pan and mix well
  6. Cook the tomatoes until they've thickened, stirring regularly
