For 2 people [double for 4]
Preheat the oven to 210°C / 190°C (fan) / gas 6. Boil half a kettle. Chop the potatoes (skins on) into chips. Add the chips to one side of a large baking tray with a drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt.
Add the sausages to other side of the tray. Put the tray[s] in the oven for 30 min or until the sausages are cooked through and the chips are golden and crisp
Tip: Cooking for 4? Use 2 trays!
Meanwhile, drain and rinse the cannellini beans. Heat a pot with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Once hot, add the drained cannellini beans to the pot with the vegetable stock mix, tomato paste, 150ml [250ml] boiled water and 1/2 tsp [1 tsp] sugar. Give everything a good mix up and cook for 3-4 min or until thickened – these are your homemade beans.
Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes in half. Slice the chestnut mushrooms finely and slice the ciabatta[s] in half. Remove the homemade beans from the heat and set aside for later. Wash the rocket, then pat it dry with kitchen paper.
Once the sausages and chips have had 20 min, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid) with a knob of butter over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the sliced mushrooms and halved tomatoes and cook for 3 min on one side, then flip everything and cook for 3 min further. Transfer the softened mushrooms to the tray[s] in the oven alongside the chips and sausages to keep warm.
Return the pan with the tomatoes to a medium-low heat and add another knob of butter. Crack the eggs into the pan. Cover with a lid and cook for 2-3 min or until the tomatoes are softened and the eggs are done to your liking.
Tip: Give your eggs a little shake before you crack for perfectly centred yolks!
Meanwhile, reheat the homemade beans over a medium-high heat. Add the ciabatta halves to a toaster for 1-2 min or until warmed through. Spread the toasted ciabatta halves with butter and chop them into triangles. Serve the sausages, homemade beans, mushrooms, chips and cherry tomatoes with a fried egg, the buttery toasted ciabatta triangles and rocket to the side. Season with a grind of black pepper and enjoy!
