Baked Eggs, Chorizo & Cannellini Beans – Three Blue Ducks recipe & a Thermomix version


I love baked eggs and I really like Three Blue Ducks, in Sydney’s Bronte, as well so to have found this recipe in one of the trashy magazines while I was hanging about doing the ballet run made for a good start to the day last Saturday.  We came home and made it for a late lunch as we just happened to have all the ingredients, happy days.  Now that I know how easy it can be we are going to have it again and again and most likely next Sunday for Father’s Day breakfast too.  This is a great dish as any meal really. Do you like baked eggs?

It serves 6 and you can make the chorizo and beans ahead of time if you need to – so great if you are having friends over for brunch and don’t want to be tied up in the kitchen!  There were only 2 of us eating this when I made it so I set some of the chorizo bean mix aside for breakfast the next morning.

(The recipe is from Mark LaBrooy & Darren Robertson of the Three Blue Ducks and was found in New Idea Magazine, August 2014)

Baked Eggs, Chorizo & Cannellini Beans – Three Blue Ducks recipe & a Thermomix version


  • Few Tbs oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 250 g spicy chorizo, thinly sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, roughly chopped
  • 1 long red chilli, finely chopped
  • 400g can cannellini beans, rinse and drained
  • 400 g can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • salt & pepper
  • Handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 12 eggs (I only used 4 and did it in a big pot as was only cooking for 2 of us, I set some of the chorizo bean mix aside for the next mornings breakfast and added more eggs then)
  • Sourdough to serve


  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add onion, garlic and chorizo and fry until onion becomes translucent.
  2. Add capsicum, chilli, beans, tomatoes and paprika. Stir and simmer for a further 10 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200 C.
  3. The mixture should become thick but still be a sauce. Season to taste, take off the heat and add the parsley.
  4. Place a large spoonful of the bean mixture in the centre of 6 individual ramekins (or put it all into one large oven proof pot) then crack an egg either side of the beans. Season and place in the oven and bake for 6 - 8 minutes or until the eggs are cooked as you like them.
  5. Serve with crusty sourdough.

I did the chorizo and bean mix in the Thermomix so the ingredients are all the same but the method I used was this:

1. Chop onions and garlic, speed 5 / 3 seconds

2. Add thinly sliced chorizo and saute for 3 minutes / Varoma / speed 1

3. Add capsicum, chilli, beans, tomatoes and paprika and cook 10 minutes / 100 degrees / Reverse / Speed 1

4. Season to taste and add parsley.

5. Transfer to serving dishes (as in the recipe above) add eggs and bake in the oven for 6 – 8 minutes

    Sometimes trashy magazines contain real gems, don’t they?! Sometimes I’ll be looking through one in a waiting room (feeling rather self-conscious due to the poor quality of my reading material) but then will actually find some great recipe inspiration and whip out my phone to take a photo. I’ve actually never made baked eggs – they look simple and oh so delicious, Vicki!

      Baked eggs are the biz – they go well in your baked bean recipe too – I tried it the other day!
