  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the potatoes and boil for 5 mins until just tender. Drain well and leave in the colander to steam-dry.

  2. Meanwhile, spray an ovenproof pan with cooking spray. Add the leeks with a splash of water and fry until very soft and squishy. Add a few more sprays of the oil, tip in the potatoes along with the ham, and fry to crisp up a little. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  3. Stir in the mustard, 1 egg and a good amount of seasoning with a fork – break up some of the potatoes roughly as you do. Flatten down the mixture, spray the top with oil, and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until the top is crisp.

  4. When the hash is nearly ready, heat 200ml water in a non-stick frying pan with a lid (or use a baking sheet as a lid). When it is steaming (but before it simmers), crack in the remaining 4 eggs and cover with a lid. Cook for 2-4 mins until the eggs are done to your liking. Meanwhile, heat the beans.

  5. Lift an egg onto each plate, add a big scoop of hash and spoon on some beans.

Used red onion instead of leeks and added garlic, some left over sausage meat, and finally put eggs in on top after fifteen minutes to cook rather than using another pan!

For 'healthy' fried eggs all you need is a pan that needs no oil. I have pans that fry eggs with no oil and the eggs just slide out onto the plate like they are on ice. Sometimes I may use 1/2 tsp o/oil, just for the flavour.
