A hearty breakfast is the best way to start the day and this simple Baked Egg and Beans is packed full of the protein you need to keep you going all day – well, at least until lunch.

One-dish Egg and Beans (serves two, or one really hungry person)
200g baked beans
2 eggs
1 tablespoon chopped chives
Spray oil
Toast to serve – optional

Method
Preheat oven to 1800C. Spray two small oven-proof dishes with oil. Divide the beans between the two bowls and crack an egg on each. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, which will give you a nice, runny yolk in your egg. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chives. Serve with toast if desired.

    A great alternative to the usual, beans and egg on toast. Yum!

    Whilst it might be a great new way to cook an egg and heat some beans it is hardly energy efficient. I would guess about 50c of electricity to cook this meal. (Don't mention the carbon released!) Other methods such as boiling, frying or microwave are quicker and use much less energy. As Seniors we should be setting an example, rather than just drifting on our merry ways

    i would avoid that dish. the eggs are good, but make sure you are eating the albumen not he yolk. There is risk of increasing your heart related problems if you consume yolk. But albumen is perfect for your health.
