One-Pan Brunch

The perfect brunch for the hungry and the lazy.

The ideal time for this is a Sunday morning, although technically any day would work. The beauty of the recipe is that as far as ingredients are concerned, pretty much anything goes.


  • 2-3 bacon
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 1/2 can of baked beans
  • 6-8 Swiss button mushrooms, quartered
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • A stalk of cherry tomatoes
  • A splash of lemon juice
  • A spoonful of parsley, finely minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper


  1. Cook bacon on a wide cast-iron skillet with a bit of olive oil, for a few minutes.
  2. Add mushrooms with more olive oil, cook until they start to release water.
  3. Add beans and reheat, for 3-5 mins.
  4. Crack eggs in the middle of the pan, cook until whites are set, about 3-5 mins.
  5. Add tomatoes together with eggs, lightly grill.
  6. Season mushrooms with lemon juice and parsley, eggs with cayenne pepper and everything except bacon with salt & pepper.
  7. Serve directly on the pan!

Tips & Tricks

  • The pan is your playground. Swap bacon for sausages, mushrooms with onions, whatever rocks your boat (or whatever is left in the fridge).
  • Watch for timings. Mushrooms and onions took longer to cook than eggs and tomatoes.
  • Adding a bit of butter before cooking eggs is not necessary but highly recommended.
