Ready in 50 minutes
800g floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, peeled and cut into chunks
2 tsp mustard powder
4 medium eggs, plus 2 medium egg yolks
200g spring greens, finely shredded
5 spring onions, finely sliced
25g fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves finely chopped, reserving some to serve
Low-calorie cooking spray
250g chestnut mushrooms, halved or quartered
250g tomatoes, halved
2 x 415g cans baked beans
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Boil the potatoes for 12-15 minutes until tender. Drain well, then return to the pan. Season and mash with the mustard and egg yolks until smooth.
2 Boil the spring greens for 3 minutes, then drain well and pat dry. Mix together the mashed potato, spring greens, spring onions and parsley. Shape into 8 cakes.
3 Place the cakes on a non-stick baking tray. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and cook for 30 minutes, or until golden and crisp. When the cakes have 10 minutes to go, place a non-stick griddle or frying pan over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the mushrooms and tomatoes, and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally, until softened.
4 Meanwhile, heat the beans until piping hot. Spray a non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Fry the eggs until cooked to your liking.
5 Divide the bubble and squeak cakes, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans and eggs between 4 plates. Scatter with the remaining parsley and season with freshly ground black pepper.

Also have one portion of wholemeal bread or breakfast cereal each day – your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice. To keep things simple we’ve built your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice into the menu plan each day.
Choose your Syns®
Foods and drinks that pose a risk to your weight loss – those high in fat or sugar, as well as alcohol – can be enjoyed as carefully counted Syns. We recommend you plan between 5 and 15 Syns into your day (see the bottom of the next page for some ideas).
Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
