  • 16 rashers streaky bacon
  • 4 croissants, cut in half horizontally
  • 100g cheddar, finely grated
  • 400g tin baked beans
  • a few dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • a few dashes hot sauce, plus extra to serve
  • 4 (we used Burford Browns) eggs
  • for frying vegetable oil


  • STEP 1

    Heat the grill to high and cook the bacon, turning once, until really crisp. Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

  • STEP 2

    Put the croissants onto a baking tray and divide the bacon, cheese and beans between the croissants bases, splashing some Worcestershire and hot sauce over each. Put on the tops and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the croissants are crisp, cheese melted and beans bubbling.

  • STEP 3

    Fry the eggs in a little oil to your liking then drain on kitchen paper. Carefully remove the tops of the croissants, put on the eggs, replace the tops and serve.
