Gwen's Lambs Fry Cook-Up
For this recipe, you can add anything you like - it's up to what you enjoy! You could substitute the lambs fry with liver if you want.
There are no specific measurements - just use as much as you need for the number of people you're cooking for. The amounts below are for two servings, but it is up to you how much you use. You may want to use less or more (if you have a Brendon Pongia in your household you will need to use MORE).

1 can of tomatoes
1 can of mushrooms
Enough vegetable oil to cook with
