Can you cook Breakfast Bakes another way?

You can cook these Breakfast Bakes in the oven or the microwave.

Don’t forget, cooking times will vary depending on your microwave or oven, the size of dish you use and how you like your eggs, so we’ve given you a rough guide for both.

I like a runny yolk so 15 minutes in the oven was perfect for me!

Either bake in the preheated oven at 190°C for 15 – 20 minutes, or microwave on high for at least 60 – 90 seconds (don’t forget to cover with cling film in the microwave).

Make sure the egg is cooked as you like it and serve!

How do you know when the Breakfast Bakes are cooked?

When cooked the egg on top will be cooked to your preference, any white should be set.

This should take approx 15-20 minutes in the oven, 60-90 seconds in the microwave (high).

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

How long can you keep Breakfast Bakes in the fridge?

You can keep them prepared (minus the egg) in the fridge for up to 3 days. Make sure they are well covered.

We wouldn’t recommend keeping leftovers as the egg would be over cooked when reheating.

Can I freeze Breakfast Bakes?

We wouldn’t recommend freezing this recipe. It’s really quick to put together and you can always prepare it the night before (minus the egg) and keep it in the fridge if your morning is rushed!

Because of time I decided to microwave this instead. I poured the beans over, straigth from the tin as it doesn’t say to heat the beans first. I put it in the microwave for 1 minute 80 seconds; I like my egg with a soft yolk and my microwave is 900 watts. I had to keep cooking for a further 30 seconds, then another; in fact I lost count of how long they were cooking for, in order to get the egg white cooked. I think you should include in this recipe the fact that the beans obviously have to be heated through first

    Hi Jean, thanks for your question about the Breakfast Bakes and sorry to hear you’ve had a problem getting the egg to cook. I have checked, and can confirm that the baked beans do go into the dish cold. The timings given will vary depending on your microwave, the size of the dish used, how you like your eggs cooked and whether you covered the dish with cling film. Because of all these variables, the timings are a guide in this recipe. Did you cover the dish with cling film when microwaving the Breakfast Bakes, as this would affect the cooking time? Do hope this helps and many thanks for getting in touch.

I’m not a beans fan can I use spaghetti Instead

    Sharon FitzpatrickWednesday 13th May 2020

    Hi Anika, thanks for your question about spaghetti. We haven’t tried making this with spaghetti, but you could try using tinned spaghetti in tomato sauce, it should be fine. Let us know how you get on!

I’m not a massive fan of mushrooms, any suggestions of a substitute?

    Holly LevellMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Lousise, you could swap the mushrooms for some sliced peppers or sliced cherry tomatoes. Hope that helps!

Anyone making with frozen veggie sausage did you prebake first?

Reply

    Emma TFriday 13th September 2019

    Hi Becci,

    If the veggie sausages are frozen, I’d recommend baking them first!

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Christine,

    You could cook this in advance and then reheat (just make sure the container is microwaveable friendly!) ????

Hi, this sounds amazing but I Hate Baked Beans!! Can I use tinned Tomatoes instead? Xx

Reply

    Holly LevellFriday 15th May 2020

    Hi Emma, you could try to use tinned tomatoes but they may produce a lot more liquid so I’d suggest draining them just to remove some of the juice before pouring them over the bacon and mushrooms. Let us know how you get on!
