  1. Turn the grill on to a high heat.
  2. Place 2.5 cm (1 in) of boiling water from the kettle into a deep frying pan and place over a low heat until tiny bubbles appear.
  3. Crack the egg directly over the water and slide it gently in – the fresher the egg the better (less than 3 days old), as it will stay more in shape, an old egg will be runnier and not hold together well. After 1 minute, turn the heat off from under the pan and let the eggs sit for a further 10 minutes.
  4. While the eggs are cooking, remove excess fat from the bacon and slice or quarter the tomatoes. Place under the grill until both are cooked to your liking.
  5. Heat baked beans as per the can instructions.
  6. Toast the bread.
  7. When the eggs are ready and the bacon, beans and tomatoes cooked, add them to the toast, serve and enjoy!
