Breakfast of Champions

BR

Here’s what we had for breakfast this morning.

It turned out so darn good that I wanted to share the bare-naked, no-nonsense recipe here eventhough I didn’t make any step-by-step photos. This wasn’t intended to end up on Kayotic Kitchen but well, I’m a girl and allowed to change my mind!

We’re redecorating the house and a lot of painting, demolishing, running up and down the stairs and ending up completely wiped at night out is involved. So we needed a decent breakfast. And a decent breakfast this is.

It’s simple—almost like a skillet version of an English breakfast—it’s not too time consuming, no fancy ingredients and will fill you right up ’til lunchtime.


Directions:

1) Mince a small onion, chop 2 tomatoes and cut up 2 thick, long slices of bacon.

2) In a oven-proof skillet you crisp up the bacon for a few minutes, add the onions and cook for another 4 minutes.

3) Throw in your diced tomatoes and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes, then pour in half a can of white beans in tomato sauce (I always use Heinz).

4) Break a few eggs on top, sprinkle some salt and pepper all over and grate a little cheese over the eggs.

5) Bake it in a 350F° (175C°) oven for about 10 minutes, until the egg-whites are set but the yolk is still runny.

6) Sprinkle dried celery leaves on top for an extra flavor kick.

7) Best eaten with lightly buttered whole wheat toast.

It came out of the oven smelling and looking so good, I had no choice but to grab my camera and take a few quick shots.

This is probably the best breakfast I’ve had in quite some time. The sweetness of the tomato sauce completely blended in with the eggs. The onion and tomatoes gave it a wonderful edge and the bacon added the right amount of richness and saltiness.

It was wonderful. Definite do-again.
I’m off to do more painting! Real photo recipes will follow later, promise!

      Looks wonderful!  Sure wish Hubby was a bean eater, the little stinker, because this seriously would be a week-end happening in my kitchen if he did.  Suppose I could make a small frying pan version just for me though!

      In Israel we call this Shakshuka, a pretty common breakfast\lunch\dinner which is served in many restaurants (not the fancy kind, but still :))

      1. @ Maria:

        What made this dish so good to me was the tomato sauce from the white beans and the bacon. I didn’t use spices (besides salt and pepper), but will give it a try that next time!

        This is really my kind of food. Not fancy but so good!

      Oh Nummy!  We have a snow day today so I had extra time to make breakfast.  I didn’t have any fresh tomatoes or white beans in tomato sauce, so I fried up the bacon and onion (as directed) and then added a can of organic chili beans in sauce and proceeded with the eggs and cheese.  Also delicious!

      I made this today and my boyfriend (and me) loved it! I added some garlic and sweet pepper &  some dried oregano & basil. Served it with toast & added little tabasco on top of the eggs before serving. 
      Next time I might add some mushrooms.

      Would white beans in tomato sauce be a can of baked beans in the US?
