( MAKES 6 )

For traditional poached eggs, try changing them up a bit and make a more substantial meal by serving them on a tasty bean mash filled with lemon and feta. It’s a winner, especially with a large mushroom to contain the mixture. This is also a great way to use any leftover mashed potato, with a few flavours added.
- Into a bowl place the mashed potato, butter beans, zest, feta and olive oil. Mash roughly with fork to combine. Add a little lemon juice if necessary to help soften. Heat in a pan or microwave for 1 minute.
- In a frying pan melt the butter and cook the mushrooms on both sides until cooked through, seasoning well. Set aside.
- Poach the eggs.
- To serve, place a mushroom on each plate, top with some mash, an egg and sprinkle over some chopped parsley. Serve a bowl of pickle on the side to finish.
