1 min read
Make this five-ingredient baked eggs with tomatoes and beans using store cupboard staples. It's a quick, easy, tasty and healthy dish.

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes

Cooking Time: 20 Minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients: 

  • 2 x 400g cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 400g can mixed bean salad, drained
  • 200g baby spinach
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 50g thinly sliced smoked ham, torn
  • Wholemeal rye bread, to serve

Method:

  1. Tip the tomatoes and bean salad into an ovenproof frying pan or shallow flameproof casserole dish. Simmer for 10 mins, or until reduced. Stir in the spinach and cook for 5 mins more until wilted. 

  2. Heat the grill to medium. Make four indentations in the mixture using the back of a spoon, then crack one egg in each. Nestle the ham in the mixture, then grill for 4-5 mins, or until the whites are set and the yolks runny. Serve with rye bread, if you like.
