Eggy chip bake

Serves 1

Ready in 40 minutes

1 large potato, peeled and cut into wedges

low calorie cooking spray

large pinch of paprika

string of cherry tomatoes on the vine


2 eggs*

200g can baked beans in tomato sauce


Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Cook the potato wedges in lightly salted boiling water over a high heat for 6-7 minutes then drain well

Tip on to a non-stick baking tray. Spray the wedges with low calorie cooking spray and toss with the paprika.

Add the cherry tomatoes and cook in the oven for 25 minutes or until the potatoes start to crisp up.

Season with salt, make some space and break the eggs on to the tray.

Return the tray to the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until the eggs are set to your liking.

Meanwhile, heat the baked beans in a pan over a low heat. Serve the eggs, chips and tomatoes with the baked beans and tomato ketchup, if you like.

*Pregnant women, the elderly and babies are advised not to eat raw or partially cooked eggs
