Cheap gourmet brunch - Brunch is one of those truly wonderful pass times on the weekend. In London, brunch can cost a small fortune. I threw this together and it cost less than a fiver.
The how - I picked up sausages from Waitrose - spicy beef with paprika and lamb chipolatas with herbs. The walnut bread was a last minute addition to my shopping basket since they didn't have the wholemeal bread that I normally buy. I added a generous slather of my homemade hummus to the walnut bread. And my salad consisted of peppery rocket, plum tomatoes, avocado (which always makes salad special), and a drizzle of extra light olive oil. It was all ready to serve in 10 minutes and it tasted phenomenal. Waitrose deliver. Or for a paradise of good food, check out a store near you at www.waitrose.com
Health tip - I rinsed my sausages in water after pan frying so they were less oily and fatty.
If you want a fuller breakfast, add a soft boiled egg with cayenne pepper and get your protein fix.

Fast fact - typically brunch is between 11am and 1 pm. If it's before 10am, it's considered breakfast.
