In this recipe, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of creating a hearty and satisfying Breakfast Meat.

Fun Fact:
Did you know that in the past, it was common for people to have a hearty breakfast to sustain them throughout the day? Breakfast Meat was a popular choice because it provided a substantial amount of protein and nutrients to keep people energized until lunchtime.


- 1 lb. Cold Meat
- 2 oz. Macaroni
- Pepper and Salt
- 3 Tomatoes
- 1/2 gill Stock
- Bread Crumbs

Total Cost: 5 1/2 d.


1. Mince up the cold meat, ensuring that it is well chopped into small pieces. If you have any leftover hash or mince, they can be used interchangeably with the cold meat.

2. If you don't have any cold macaroni, boil 2 oz. of macaroni according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain and set aside.

3. Slice up the tomatoes into thin slices.

4. Preheat your oven to the appropriate temperature, usually around 350°F (175°C).

5. Butter a suitable oven-safe dish that can be used for both cooking and serving. This will prevent the ingredients from sticking to the dish and make it easier to serve.

6. Begin layering the ingredients in the buttered dish. Start with a layer of minced meat, spreading it evenly across the bottom of the dish.

7. Add a layer of macaroni on top of the meat, ensuring an even distribution.

8. Follow this with a layer of tomato slices. The tomatoes will add a refreshing and tangy flavor to the dish.

9. Sprinkle pepper and salt over each layer to season the dish to your liking. Adjust the amount based on your preference.

10. Repeat the process of layering, alternating between meat, macaroni, and tomatoes until you have used up all the ingredients.

11. Once you have completed the layers, pour 1/2 gill of stock evenly over the top. The stock will help keep the dish moist and add depth of flavor.

12. Finally, sprinkle a generous amount of bread crumbs over the top of the dish. The bread crumbs will create a delicious crispy crust when baked.

13. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the ingredients are heated through.

14. Once cooked, remove the dish from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

15. Serve the Breakfast Meat hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
