You that has followed me for a while now … know that I can eat breakfast any time of the day. Also that I’m addicted to ice cream and Heinz Baked Beanz. Still I never had ice cream for breakfast, but I’m sure that day will come too.
Heinz Beanz – I can buy here but the tins are fare too big for me eating alone – so when I go over to Belfast I fill up my bag with their snap pots – perfect for one and just to put in the micro wave for 60 sec. Heinz Beanz I eat one per week with grilled bacon, poached egg and I love boiled potatoes with mine. Sometimes I also have some grilled mushrooms and soft fried onion with, if I have any at home.
In this leftover dish I have to give the credit to two bloggers – Wendy@Chez Chloe from whom I picked up the idea first from – she then related to a blogger, that I wasn’t familiar with – that she had taken the idea from.
So when I saw the dish, I thought what a great way to pimp up my weekly beanz.
English Breakfast with Bacon Egg Basket
served with boiled potatoes.
Wendy had told me that she soft grilled the bacon before she put in to the muffin tin, but her bacon was so much thicker than what I had in the freezer – so I followed Karista@Karista’s Kitchen recipe. My bacon was a bit too fatty – so I had cut some fat of, but not all – it was unsmoked.
Had everything at home – bacon, greeted cheese and chopped basil in the freezer – beans and egg in the cupboard plus and a fresh mushrooms in the fridge. The mushrooms I just washed and quarted – then into the grill pan until looking good.
I made sure that I greased the muffin tins properly – I use olive oil .. then just followed the recipe. The cheese I used, was just basic grated cheese .. and for herbs I used Findus chopped basil (that I adore *smile).
I baked my basket on +230C/+450F for about 10-12 min, I think my silicon tins made the cooking a bit slower – but it came out perfect, just a want my egg .. a little bit runny. I made 2 baskets, but one fell over in the oven – and became a bit messy. Glad I did 2 at the start.
This is definitely something I will do again – and great way to present bacon and egg.

By the way, if you can please read /review my short story Final Destination
Thanks for stopping by and taking your time – will have a look at your story. *smile
If I ate meat, I think I would be all over this recipe – no wait, I know I would be 😀
Choc Chip Uru
Uru, thank you so much … it was a really nice dish and – so straight forward – if I became vegetarian I would miss bacon most of all, I think.
Now this I will try… breakfast can be eaten at supper time as far as I’m concerned… baked beans Lovely… I love this share…
So easy to make and very tasty with the cheese and the herbs – yes, I’m like you – can eat breakfast anytime of the day. Something I took with me home from UK and Ireland.
Sounds yummy! I lOVE baked beans too, AND Icecream 🙂
Baked beans I can eat as snack. Never eat baked beanz before I moved to UK>
Beans for breakfast!!!! Never saw this until I traveled to Ireland. 🙂 It is still an odd concept to me. But I would certainly try this dish! For breakfast or whenever.
I never had beanz for breakfast before I came to UK and Ireland neither – never had baked beanz even.
Nothing like a full English or Irish breakfast, any time of the day … It’s the same that you American eat mayonnaise with fruit salad.
Bleck! Mayonnaise on fruit!!!! I didn’t get that in my USA genes! 😉
Colleen, the first ever starter I made for US passengers was fresh fruit salad with mayonnaise on top – that was in 1978.
Same as in UK they eat Lasange with fries.
Lasagna with fries….not such a bad idea. 😉 Still can’t stomach the fruit salad with mayo.
Pasta and potatoes … on the same time – be sure I wouldn’t eat fruit salad with mayonnaise.
We seem to agree whole heartedly on the fruit salad. I trust your tastes Viveka!
Colleen, I have to ask for your support .. for my photo again … it’s such close race .. need all the votes I can get.
I know I’m pushy … *smile
Ahhhhh! I did vote! YAY! You had over 60 votes already by the time I voted. It’s not being pushy to just point it out to me. I would hate to miss a chance to vote for you.
There is a new entry now that will be the winner … sure if it – a magical photo … but I don’t give up the fight. *smile
Never give up!
I hearty breakfast is a wonderful way to start the day!
Totally agree, but I couldn’t eat it for breakfast everyday – but I think I could eat for dinner everyday.
I Scotland you get Haggis with it too – even better. *smile
You don’t want to know … the Scottish National dish. *smile If you ever being served .. don’t ask just enjoy and you will love it.
Now that is a funny answer!
…. but it’s so tasty and if you ever visit Scotland you have to have it.
I love pork and beans but haven’t tried them for breakfast. You just made it beautifully imaginable!
In UK and Ireland they eat if for breakfast – got the habit from my years over there.
It’s a great way to serve bacon and egg .. really like it with the cheese and herbs.
Can’t take the credit for this dish. *smile
This looks incredible!
Thank you so much *smile .. can take the credit for the basket.
Sounds yummy. You have such a way with making new things that I wouldn’t even think about. I guess that’s why you’re the chef and I just use your ideas. 🙂 It makes me hungry just looking at it.
Maralee …. this is so easy a child can make it and it’s a great way to serve egg and bacon.
Just follow the recipe .. can’t go wrong.
I have nothing better to say.
Maybe … a dish for your brunch menu *smile .. it’s a great way to pimp up egg and bacon. Thanks ..
well now that is an unusual combination. I have never tried that………but may!!
This is a very British thing .. but cowboys always had bacon, egg, beans … at least in the movies.
I need to try this. I usually have beans as a side dish for hamburgers or hotdogs, but I know that they’re also good for breakfast.
Strange that you over there don’t eat beans for breakfast – it’s a must in UK and on Ireland.
I just love a cooked breakfast but in Turkey obviously there was no bacon or sausages but loads of ice-cream!
No pork what so ever … ????? Learn the something new today too. Nothing can beat a good cooked breakfast. *smile
We ALWAYS have beans with an English breakfast (and often eat an English breakfast for dinner) but not boiled potatoes!
However, if I have leftover mashed potatoes, I dry fry it to go with the bacon, etc. Yummy.
I love boil potatoes with my beans when I have it for dinner. Like potatoes cakes too – but not deep fried .. on the other hand you, guys … UK .. it deep fried bread with breakfast too .. poor heart. *smile
WE don’t eat fried bread! Yeurggh! 🙂
Beans for breakfast is very popular here…New England has carried on so many of the traditions of England. Lovely meal.
Yes, this with making a basket of the bacon .. great.
… sure that it comes from all good old Britannia.
