Smoky Baked Beans With Egg & Chorizo

Serves 4
Total Time
55 Minutes
2 tsp of oil
1 red onion, chopped
1 tbsp of black treacle
½ tsp of sweet smoked paprika
1 tsp of chipotle paste
2 x 400g cans of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
400g can of borlotti beans, drained and rinsed
½ x 400g can of chopped tomatoes
½ tbsp of cider vinegar, plus extra to taste
100g Waitrose Chorizo Ring, cut into thick slices
2 tsp of olive oil
4 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
1 tbsp of chopped parsley, to serve
Step 1

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a low heat. Add the onion and season. Cook, stirring occasionally, for five minutes. Stir in all the remaining ingredients for the beans. Add 150ml of water and simmer over a low heat, lid on, for 35-40 minutes, until tender and thickened. Season again to taste, adding a splash of extra vinegar if the beans seem too sweet.

Step 2

When the beans are almost ready, cook the chorizo. Lay the slices in a single layer in a large frying pan. Place over a low heat and cook gently until crisp, then turn over to crisp the other side. Remove the chorizo from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the oil to the pan and increase the heat to high. Crack in the eggs and cook until the whites are set and the yolks cooked to your liking.

Step 3

Serve the beans topped with the egg and the chorizo. Scatter with parsley and serve.
