• 6–8 Wattie's frozen Hash Browns
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 rashers bacon or 100g chorizo sausage
  • 100g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 420g can Wattie’s Baked Beans 50% Less Added Sugar*
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup grated reduced-fat cheese
  • Chopped fresh parsley to garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 210°C (fan assisted). Lay the frozen Wattie's frozen Hash Browns in a single layer in the base of a 20 cm square baking dish, cutting to fit if necessary. Bake for 15 minutes.
  2. While the hash browns are cooking, prepare the filling. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bacon or chorizo and sauté until the onion is soft and meat is cooked. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking for a further minute. Add the Wattie’s Baked Beans 50% Less Added Sugar and stir while heating.
  3. Spoon the hot bean mixture over the cooked hash browns. Make 4 indentations in the beans and break in the eggs. Scatter over the grated cheese. Cover dish lightly with foil, making sure it doesn't touch the eggs. Return the baking dish to the oven and bake for a further 10–15 minutes or until the eggs are set to your liking. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

*Contains 50% less added sugar and 30% less salt than the regular Wattie’s Baked Beans in tomato sauce 420g.

Top Tips

  • If you’re using a bigger dish, you may like to add an extra can of Wattie’s Baked Beans 50% Less Added Sugar.

Swap it out

  • Replace Wattie’s frozen Hash Browns with a tightly packed single layer of Wattie’s frozen Hash Bites instead.
  • Use Wattie’s Mild Chilli Beans or Wattie’s Spaghetti (standard or 50% Less Added Sugar option) instead of Wattie’s Baked Beans.
  • Replace grated low fat cheese with grated smoked cheddar for a smokier flavor.

Switch it up

  • Add ½ diced red capsicum to the pan with the onion and bacon.
  • Brown breakfast sausages and place on the baked hash browns, prior to spooning over the bean mixture– bacon can be omitted if wished.

This is such a quick and easy meal to put together and can easily be served for lunch as well as breakfast. Cost was minimal, we had the chorizo sausages as not great fans of bacon. Will be a regular meal in our whare.

Tim's Review | Rating

The great thing about this recipe is it's flexibility - don't have mushrooms, throw in some cherry tomatoes, want to add more protein, cook some sausages or black pudding alongside the bacon, for extra zing, add spicy BBQ sauce into the baked beans!!!
