Toast, Egg, Beans and Plantain

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

Today I am posting one of my favourite meals for breakfast. This meal is very filling and perfect for a chilled morning when you are not in a rush because after eating you can just chill, relax and let the food settle. I often make this for myself on the weekend when I have more time in the mornings. This can be made in any order but I’ve left my method below. Also, anyone else mix their egg before frying? It’s a thing I’ve always done since I was young.

The eggs are a great source of vitamins and minerals. Wholemeal bread contains fibre and helps with digestion. Generally, baked beans tend to be quite sweet and salty but the actual bean itself is known for being a plant based source of protein. The easiest way to make this meal healthier is to use a non stick pan to avoid extra oil.

What are your favourite breakfast meals?

Recipe: Toast, egg, beans and plantain (serves 1)

Ingredients

Oil for frying

1/2 plantain

1 egg

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

2 slices of brown bread

Butter, for spreading

100g baked beans

Method

  • Heat some oil in a frying pan.
  • Then I like to peel and finely slice the plantain into circles.
  • Once the pan is hot enough start adding the plantain and cook on each side for a few minutes until golden brown. Once cooked, place onto a plate with kitchen paper to soak off the excess oil.
  • Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk gently with a fork then add a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  • Put the bread to toast and heat the beans in a pot.
  • Fry the egg on a low heat on both sides until cooked right through.
  • Once everything is cooked, put onto your plate and enjoy!

Breakfast Lunch or Dinner

I love this meal because it’s so versatile and you can literally eat it at any time of the day. It’s simple yet very tasty and filling therefore keeping you full for a long while after eating.

Ingredients I used:
– 2 slices of brown bread toasted
– 1 egg
– baked beans
– 1/2 plantain

There’s lots of different flavours going on you get the sweetness from the plantain, savoury from the beans and salty from the egg.

I like to cut my plantain into circles and fry until golden on each side, with my egg I always crack it into a bowl first add a little salt and pepper then whisk lightly before pouring into a frying pan. I didn’t butter my toast because I’ve already got 2 of the foods which are fried.

Even though this dish is quite healthy for and even healthier alternative I would suggest having a boiled egg and simmering the plantain with the skin on for 15mins.
