These one-pan brekkies give us all the happy feels for so many reasons. It's not just how good they taste. 'Tho they do! It's not just that less washing up is rather nice too. It certainly is!

Yes, you got it!
"Pyttipanna translates as ‘small bits in a pan’. Typically comprising onions, potatoes, minced meat, beetroot and a fried egg, it's a dish that is quickly put together with whatever you might have foraged from the kitchen," says Rachel Khoo of this vibrant Swedish take on breakfast. You can use two pans to speed things up, or one to cut down on the washing up. "There are no rules in my book when it comes to making this dish, so feel free to get creative with leftovers. I always seem to have rashers of smoky bacon in the fridge (in case of a bacon sarnie emergency), and lentils are always in the larder. Just don’t forget the obligatory fried egg on top!"

"Simple, comforting and wholesome - this is the perfect home-cooked comfort meal if you're craving some leafy green vegetables. It's also gluten-free and vegetarian."
"One of those dishes that proves you need very little to create a wonderful flavour. Serve as a fab dine-alone vegetarian dish or as part of a shared meal," says Poh Ling Yeow of this tasty fry-up.
