Home Style Beans with Eggs

I like to spend some of my free time looking around second hand bookshops for old or out of print recipe books. A lot of the time you only find the same unpopular titles but, from time to time, you will find something special or something that just appeals because it is unusual or novel. A book that falls into the category of being unusual or novel is The Heinz Book of Baked Bean Recipes!

As someone who grew up loving baked beans this really appealed to me. Presumably as a book which was produced to promote Heinz Beans they will not mind me reproducing a few of the recipes for you to enjoy - especially the kids, old and young!

"A protein-filled recipe from Heinz that makes an ideal vegetarian lunch or supper dish".


2 tbsps oil
100g / 4oz onion, sliced
450g / 1 lb potatoes, cooked and diced
2 x 225g / 7.94oz cans Heinz Curried Beans with
4 eggs
50g / 2oz Cheddar cheese, grated

  • Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole and fry the onion until transparent.
  • Stir in the potatoes and curried beans and add salt to taste.
  • Make four 'nests' in the bean mixture and break an egg into each one.
  • Sprinkle with the grated cheese and bake in a preheated oven at 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6, for 15 - 20 minutes, until bubbling.

Preparation takes about 15 minutes and cooking takes 25 minutes.

Serving ideas :
Serve this dish with some crusty French bread for a satisfying meal.

Many different types of cheese could be used for this recipe. Try a blue cheese for a stronger flavour.
