  1. Tip the tomatoes and bean salad into an ovenproof frying pan or shallow flameproof casserole dish. Simmer for 10 mins, or until reduced. Stir in the spinach and cook for 5 mins more until wilted. 

  2. Heat the grill to medium. Make four indentations in the mixture using the back of a spoon, then crack one egg in each. Nestle the ham in the mixture, then grill for 4-5 mins, or until the whites are set and the yolks runny. Serve with rye bread, if you like.

Bland & tasteless, 2nd time used smoked lardons instead of ham and spiced it up with smoked paprika and cayenne pepper

This was so simple to make and tasted lovely. I added in a squidge of tomato ketchup to thicken it and a good glug of balsamic vinegar. Served on toast with a poached egg on top instead of grilling the eggs as I find they either overcook or are not cooked enough using the grilling method.
