Breakfast Bake

This breakfast bake has everything you need for a great start to the day — potatoes, sausages and, of course, runny egg yolks.


  • 7 ounces of halved baby potatoes
  • 6 sausages, skinned and rolled into bite sized meatballs (you should get 4 meatballs per sausage)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato puree
  • Salt
  • Finely ground black pepper
  • 2 (14.5 ounces) can of plum tomatoes
  • 1 (14.5 ounces) can of haricot beans
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat your oven to 390 degrees F.
  2. Boil the potatoes in salt water for roughly 10 minutes until they are thoroughly cooked.
  3. While the spuds are boiling, using a large sauté pan with olive oil, brown your sausage meatballs all over. Once browned, remove from the pan and set aside. This should take about 5 minutes on a high heat.
  4. Using the same pan, add in your onions and fry until they start to go translucent, about ten minutes.
  5. Then add in your sugar and spices and thyme leaves, stir through to mix, then add your tomato puree, and stir through again.
  6. Then add in your plum tomatoes and haricot beans. If you are using whole plum tomatoes, break them down with a spoon as much as you can. Cook this mix for another ten minutes before pouring it into a large casserole dish.
  7. Add in your potatoes and sausage meatballs, stir through, and pop into the oven, uncovered, for 35 minutes.
  8. When the time is up, remove the dish from the oven, and make 2 wells within the sauce, in which to put a cracked egg.
  9. Place back into the oven for another 15 minutes. Check that the eggs are cooked through before removing from the oven. Once they're done, let it cool slightly before serving.
