Recipe: beany bacon (and sausage) breakfast bake SP

The recipe comes from here, the wonderful Pinch of Nom.  Scroll quickly down to the recipe so dodge the adverts!
Their recipes are well worth investigating; they're fantastic and so varied.

Here's my version.

Ingredients to serve one:
one egg, beaten
*30g parmesan or non specific equivalent (Sainsbury's value one is good) - one healthy extra
a splash of milk (not enough to be worth counting)
**1/4 can baked beans (I know they are not SP friendly, see below)
1 large or 2 small mushrooms, sliced
one or two bacon medallions
2 Heck chicken chipolatas - half a syn
fry light

Turn the oven to 190C
Crack the egg into a bowl and beat well.  Add the finely grated cheese, a splash of milk, pepper and a titchy bit of salt as the cheese has some salt.

Spray a pan and heat.  Cut the bacon into bits.  Take the skin off the sausages and cut into mall lengths.  Fry the bacon and sausage in the pan and when they are pretty much done, add the mushroom slices.

Spray round an appropriately sized oven proof dish.
Spread the beans over the bottom, then the contents of the pan.  Then pout over the egg mixture, making sure it is evenly distributed.

Pop the dish on a baking sheet and into the oven for about 20 mins or so until it is lovely and brown.

Eat immediately.

*  You could use any one healthy extras worth of grated cheese.  In this, I like a parmesan type as you get so much more flavour for your healthy extra and Sailsbury's Savers hard Italian cheese works really well in cooked dishes.

**Now that baked beans are not allowed on SP days, you can work round it.  I made a batch of Pinch of Nom's bbq sauce (thoroughly recommend it) and mixed a bit of it with some haricot beans (I had some in the freezer but you can use some from a can) to make a delicious alternative.


  1. This sounds delicious, Joy, I'll be making it, thank you.

  2. :-) It's good and filling too, which is nice. Really you
    can add anything appropriate to it.
