The Perfect Savoury Sunday Brunch
This Breakfast Bolognese is a go-to regardless of whether you’re searching for the perfect savoury Sunday brunch or more of a “eat-whatever’s-left-over-from-the-night-before”. There’s just something about the way the egg yolks break and combine with the really hearty, tomato-based sauce – it gets us every time!

Breakfast & Brunch,
400-500g Quality Mark beef mince
2 tbsp olive oil
2 red capsicum
seeds removed and chopped
2-3 garlic cloves
2 heaped tbsp tomato paste
400g chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup water
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 dessertspoon balsamic vinegar
A pinch of salt
A pinch of black pepper
4 slices sourdough
small handful of parsley
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
To Make Dish
Heat a splash of oil on medium heat and add onion, cooking until it becomes caramelised.
Add garlic and cook for a further 1 minute.
Add mince, dried oregano and dried basil and fry until browned. (If adding mushrooms and courgette or any other veges add toward the end of this stage).
Cook until vegetables have softened.
Add tomato paste and fry for 1 minute, then add chopped tomatoes and simmer over gentle heat until the sauce has thickened - about 20 minutes.
Add balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper according to taste.
Create four hollows in the bolognese mixture and drop an egg in each hollow.
Keeping pan on a low-medium heat, cover pan with lid until the eggs are cooked through but yolks still runny.
It takes longer to poach the eggs in the bolognese mixture than poaching in water so patience is essential.
