Starting your weekend with the family’s favourite “vleisies” – serving Eskort Streaky Bacon with a magical fry up.

Recipe Time: 25 minutes      |      Serves: 4 – 6


5 ml freshly chopped thyme

4 extra large eggs



200 g Eskort Rindless Streaky Bacon

60 ml maple syrup

20 ml BBQ spice



80 ml mozzarella cheese

80 ml white cheddar cheese



250 g Portobellini mushrooms

60 ml basil pesto

125 ml fresh cream


To serve

crusty bread (sourdough bread/ciabatta loaf)

salt & pepper to taste

olive Oil


Home Made Baked Beans

410 g butter beans

375 ml tomato-based sauce (Napolitana)

zest of one lemon

10 ml cumin spice


Preheat your oven to 180ºC.


On a parchment-lined baking sheet, arrange bacon in a single layer and drizzle with maple syrup and sprinkle with BBQ spice. Bake until fat is rendered and bacon is beginning to brown (15 to 18 minutes).


Homemade Baked Beans:

While the bacon is in the oven add 10ml olive oil to a pan and fry the thyme and cumin spice for 1-2 minutes, add the butterbeans, lemon zest, tomato-based sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for another 5 – 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and break eggs on top of the beans.

Cover with mozzarella and white cheddar and bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your preference.



Creamy Basil Pesto Mushrooms:

In a pan, fry mushrooms on high heat in some olive oil until golden brown, add the basil pesto and cream, reduce the heat down to moderate and simmer until cream has thickened.


To serve:

Top your “Shakshuka” with the maple bacon and serve with the creamy pesto mushrooms and crusty bread.
