Jennifer’s Beanz Meanz Fitz
Picture by Hamburger Helper
I am not British so it took me a whilst to realize what Jennifer was referring to when she named this dish "Beanz Meanz Fitz" on Two Fat Women. Only not too long ago did I discover that Heinz had (has?) a well-known advert stating "Beanz Meanz Heinz". Anyway, not understanding any of this, I just genuinely liked the recipe Jennifer Paterson created using broad beans, which I believe to be Lima beans in the US (possibly various? I do not know but it really is the closest issue I can get).
Here I employed a package of frozen Lima beans and they appear a bit shrivelly compared to the great fresh ones employed on the display.
one package deal frozen lima beans
2 thick lower slices of bacon
2 big eggs
one can anchovies
juice of one really juicy lemon
olive oil equivalent to the amount of lemon juice squeezed or much more
scallions or parsley or chives or a blend
salt and pepper
Boil your eggs. I do it the Jacques Pepin way, pricking the rounder finish with a thumb tack and cooking in boiling water. I like mine accomplished for 9 minutes to make certain some moisture in the yolks. Slice the bacon so you have slivers and cook until finally crispy. Drain.
Steam or boil your beans for a few minutes just to heat them through. Drain and arrange on a shallow serving plate. Chop the eggs and sprinkle more than the beans. Jennifer utilizes chopped parsley and chives but as I had neither, I chopped some greens of a few scallions and sprinkled them above the eggs. Then sprinkle your crispy bacon. Lattice the anchovy fillets above every little thing. Whisk some lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper with each other and pour over. Very tasty.
