INGREDIENTS
METHOD
 

5 ml freshly chopped thyme

4 extra large eggs

 

Bacon

200 g Eskort Rindless Streaky Bacon

60 ml maple syrup

20 ml BBQ spice

 

Topping

80 ml mozzarella cheese

80 ml white cheddar cheese

 

Mushrooms

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.

Bacon:

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.
