For the cheesy beans

  • 1 tins baked beans

3. Beat the eggs and the cream together and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

4. Place the cooked mushrooms onto the base of the flan, scatter the tomatoes over the top and then the sausage and bacon.

5. Pour over the egg mixture and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until set.
