Mum reveals her unique way of cooking a full English breakfast


Everyone has their own way of doing things. Whether it's putting jam on a scone before the cream, or the milk in the tea before adding hot water. But when it comes to cooking a fry-up, you'd think the way to do it was pretty straightforward heat some oil in a pan and get frying. However, one mum has proved there's a very different way to go about cooking a full English breakfast.
 
Sonia Cheetham, 36, has come up with a simple and healthy way to give her family a treat before school, reports Liverpool Echo. Instead of throwing the mushrooms and bacon in a frying pan, she puts all her ingredients into a slow cooker. She says you could even cook scrambled eggs in a mug in the slow cooker the same way. The mum, from Little Fransham in Norfolk, first had the idea to do this in September, and when it worked out so successfully, she shared the hack on Facebook.
 
Her post, in a group called Slow Cooker Wonders, has since gone viral with over 27,000 shares. Miss Cheetham said: “Using a slow cooker is so easy, I'm typing one diabetic so I don't like cooking with all that fat, and it gets everywhere as well so this saves your arms."The slow cooker is a much healthier way of doing things, don't add any oil or water to the pan, just a bit of butter to the mushrooms."I find that the meat, in particular, the sausages, taste much better, they're far softer and have a lot more flavour."
She added: "It's been a hit with the children anyway! Now it's getting colder outside, it's nice to send them to school fed with warm food."It only takes about eight or nine hours, so when you wake up in the morning all you have to do is stick the toast on, and then dish up."Miss Cheetham described the reaction to her idea on social media and in the press as "overwhelming".She said: "My kids have been going into school and telling everyone that I’m famous."
