Baked Eggs With Basil, Red Kidney Beans, Pesto and Chilli

Recipe by Ricky Henry-Davies

Our local cafe made this and was a real hit on their breakfast menu. Alas they moved on and i had to recreate this amazing recipe at home! Its so delicious and sets you up for the rest of the day. Serve with your favorite toasted bread and more chilli if you fancy! I serve this straight from oven placed in the center of table with toasted Turkish bread. Optional to add your favorite cooked sausage or chorizo (Spanish sausage) to sauce before cooking in oven. Hope my UK conversions
