In this dish, three favourite breakfast ingredients – bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes – are cooked on skewers with new potatoes and patty pan squash. The kebabs are served on toasted ciabatta with a refreshing citrus salad. Enjoy them for brunch at the weekend or as a mid-week supper.
*Replace the toasted ciabatta with couscous or rice tossed with finely chopped parsley. *To make a meat-free version, omit the bacon. To add a vegetarian source of protein, use cubes of tofu instead of the mushrooms, and replace the tomatoes with 1 red pepper, seeded and cut into cubes. Make a basting sauce with the juice of 1 lime, 1 tsp honey, 1 tbsp light soy sauce, a pinch of cayenne pepper or chilli powder and a pinch of garlic salt. Serve with warm pitta bread and the citrus salad.
*Bacon, like other meat, provides iron. Another bonus of both pork and bacon is that they have a high vitamin B1 content. This vitamin is essential for maintaining a healthy nervous system. *These kebabs provide excellent quantities of vitamin C from the grapefruit, tomatoes and potatoes.
