Spicy Bean & Tomato Eggs

You may or may not know that I’ve been suffering with bubonic plague since Christmas. Bubonic plague/bronchitis, same difference. Anyway, aside from the coughing, fever and wheeziness, the worst side effect has been my loss of appetite. Yes dear reader, pigs have flown, hell has frozen over, Tara Reid is a healthy size twelve and Corrie isn’t hungry.
So seeing as it’s the end of the world, we might as eat have breakfast. Well you can, I’ll cook it, pick at it and then cough all over it. Don’t worry, if I ever get hungry again, I’ll eat it out the bin. Enjoy!

Spicy bean & tomato eggs
Serves 1 / Hands on time 10 mins / Total time 15 mins / V Df
You’ll need:
 Non-stick frying pan – I like to use a small pan but I used a large pan in the picture. If making for 2, use a large frying pan.
1 tsp rapeseed oil
2 spring onions, sliced
¼ tsp smoked paprika
Dash of Tabasco sauce (optional)
1 or 2 eggs
1 large or 2 regular tomatoes, chopped
½ can kidney beans
Handful fresh coriander, chopped
Extra virgin olive oil to serve
Toast to serve (optional)

1. Fry the spring onions in the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat for 2 mins. Add the chopped tomatoes, Tabasco and smoked paprika and cook for a further 2 mins. Season well with salt and pepper and add the beans. Cook for 5 mins.
2. Using a spoon, make  a well in the mixture and crack in your egg/eggs. Cover the pan with a lid or with sheet of foil and cook for 2-4 minutes or until the whites have set but the yolks are still soft. Serve in the pan topped with a handful of chopped coriander, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and toast for dunking.

Potted Swiss cheese eggs

Now, I know it’s the New Year and you’re all busy quaffing smoothies from your Nutribullets but let’s take a break and have some breakfast. Everyone knows breakfast is the best time of day to eat cheese… Probably.
Anyway, admittedly I’ve been on a health kick too – my wine paunch has alarmingly turned into a wine gut over the festive season. Something has to be done! Although, it’s the eighth of January and I’ve already grown tired of soup, oat cakes and those annoyingly small loaves of bread. IT’S TIME TO EAT SOME CHEESE! So fuck the diet, grab the sourdough and lets have a dippy egg and cheese party. Bran flakes can wait.

Potted Swiss cheese eggs
Serves 2 / Hands on time 15 mins / Total time 25 mins /
You’ll need:
4 ramekins
4 large eggs
1 heaped tsp unsalted butter
1 heaped tsp plain flour
70g vegetarian cheddar or Gruyere* cheese, finely grated
½ tsp Dijon mustard
100ml semi-skimmed milk
¼ tsp nutmeg
Handful fresh parsley, chopped
Toast and butter to serve (optional) 

1. Preheat an oven to 180°C/160°C fan/ 350°F/gas mark 4. Finely grate all the cheese and put to one side. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over a low heat and then whisk in the flour until the lumps are removed.
2. Leaving a small handful of cheese to one side for the topping, add the rest to the pan and whisk in the milk bit by bit. Add the mustard, nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Once the cheese sauce is nice and smooth, take off the heat.
3. Crack an egg into each ramekin and divide the cheese sauce between each. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and top with chopped parsley and season.
4. Place on a baking tray and bake on the middle shelf for 12-14 mins or until the whites have set and the yolks are still soft – keep an eye on these or they can easily overcook.
5. Meanwhile, toast the bread and spread with butter. Remove the potted eggs from the oven (they will be very hot so be careful). Serve topped with chopped parsley and buttered toast.
