Creating The Perfect Breakfast Bagel With McCain Hash Browns

June 25, 2013

I think I can safely say we are a McCain family, from their ready baked jacket potatoes which are great for making a fast but delicious lunch. Their wedges in a variety of flavours which helps Mr Boo get that added spice in his life without the preparation needed beforehand.

So when McCain contacted me regarding their Hash Browns, I was of course happy to accept them to review.

“These crisp, chunky Hash Browns have been specially prepared with a tasty new recipe, adding onion and seasoning to make them full of flavour. Oven ready in less than 20 minutes, McCain Hash Browns are perfect for mopping up that baked bean juice, catching the last dribble of egg yolk, or simply dunking in some tomato ketchup!”

Available in all good supermarkets and convenience stores, RRP £1.69 for a 700g bag 


McCain have challenged me to make and enjoy a delicious breakfast incorporating McCain Hash Browns. So as it was Father’s Day I decided to treat Mr Boo to a fabulous Breakfast Bagel…

Bagels – I used plain but you could add flavoured variety if you wanted
Sausages – Being a northerner only Cumberland sausage will do but again you could use a different variety
Bacon – Smoked or unsmoked, depending on taste
Cheese – Either cheese slices or grated

With the hash browns just 190kcals per serving, they are in fact the healthiest thing in the breakfast bagel… A great excuse to include them in many more recipes.
