  • 100ml Co-op British semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 Co-op smoked back bacon rashers
  • 4 Co-op British free range eggs

  3. Stir in the tomatoes, thyme, chickpeas and milk, then bring to a simmer
  4. Partially cover the pan and cook, stirring often, for 25 mins
  5. While it’s cooking, heat the grill and cook the bacon until it’s crisp, 8-10 mins, turning halfway, then keep warm
  6. When the sauce is done, make 4 wells in it and crack an egg into each
  7. Cover the pan fully, turn the heat to medium-low, and cook for 5-6 mins, until the egg whites have set
  8. Chop, then scatter the bacon around the pan, then serve with the pitta bread to mop up the juices
