Full English Breakfast (Baked Beans on Toast)


For 4 Person(s)


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp of Himalayan salt or ground salt alternative.
  • 8 rashers of bacon, smoked or unsmoked (to taste)
  • 150 g chestnut mushrooms
  • 800 g haricot beans (if using pre cooked tinned) OR 450 g dry haricot beans
  • 800 g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried, flaked chili (to taste)
  • 1 -2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 8 slices seeded granary bread/rye bread
  • butter for toast
  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 8 eggs


Heat the oil in a large flat pan. Finely chop the onion, crush the garlic and add to the oil with the salt. Allow to cook for 4 minutes until slightly brown and soft.

Cut the fat off the bacon, slice in to squares and add to  the pan to cook for a further 2 minutes.

Slice the mushrooms in half (discarding the bottom stalk) and add to pan for 2 minutes.

Drain the beans and add to the pan with the tinned tomatoes, stirring continually for 10-15 minutes until thickened and stewed. Add chili to taste. Add the tomato purée to thicken.

Prepare the bread to toast.

Cut the fresh tomatoes in half and add to the pan.

Space the ingredients out in the pan so everything is evenly spread.

Crack the eggs on top of the baked beans ensuring each one is separated from the next and cover immediately for 2 minutes (or until the egg white turns white).

Toast the bread and butter it once done.

Serve the beans and eggs on top of the toast.
