Baked Potato with Chilli and a Fried Egg

I wasn't feeling very well and didn't want to be stuck in the kitchen cooking a meal, so i got a portion of Beef Chilli out the freezer and stuck a potato in the oven, while i was in the fridge getting the cheese, i noticed the eggs and suddenly had a craving for one on the top of my Baked potato. Well i was very pleasantly surprised, it went really well and was delicious, the richness of the yolk cut through the sharpness of the cheese and the kick from the spicy chilli!!

Syn free on extra easy, as long as you use the cheese as your healthy A.

Preheat oven 200c, 400f, gas mark 5


1 Large baking potato
1 portion of Beef Chilli
40g reduced fat cheddar cheese or 30g full fat cheddar cheese
1 egg (i used a duck egg)
Chipotle tabasco sauce (optional)

An afterthought, a handful of jalapenos would be good too!


Wash the potato and prick all over, bake for about an hour, until the skin is crispy and the centre is tender.
Reheat the Beef Chilli on the hob for about 10 minutes till hot, or in the microwave for 5 minutes till hot.
Put the potato on a plate and cut a cross in it, then push down on the edge of each quarter, pour over the chilli and if using Jalapenos sprinkle them over, then sprinkle with the cheese.

Heat a frying pan sprayed with frylight and fry you egg to your liking, then lay on top of the cheese, sprinkle with the tabasco sauce and serve.
