  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 35 mins


  • 7 large British Lion eggs
  • 175ml milk
  • 125g plain flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • A little oil for frying
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (400g) can red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 avocado, peeled, stoned and chopped
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 75g cheddar cheese, grated


1. First make the pancakes: Place 2 of the eggs, milk, flour and salt in a large jug and whisk together to form a smooth batter. 
2. Heat a medium frying pan, add a few drops of oil, then add a ladle of batter and swirl around the pan to make a thin pancake. Cook for 2 mins on each side, until golden on both sides and transfer to a plate. Repeat to make 8 pancakes in total.
3. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas Mark 6. 
4. Mix the onion, tomatoes, beans, avocado, chilli and two thirds of the cheese together. 
5. Lightly oil the base of a 25cm baking dish and lay down a pancake. 
6. Scatter over a sixth of the filling, make a well in the centre and crack an egg in into it.
7. Top with a second pancake. Repeat the layering ending in a pancake. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
