One-Pan Eggs & Beans

Serves 4 | Prep Time 5 minutes | Total Time 25 minutes


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 package of Chakalaka
  • 3 ounces feta cheese (or sub. any crumbled or shredded cheese)
  • Scallions for garnish (or sub. parsley or other fresh herbs)
  • Crusty bread for serving, sliced and lightly toasted


  1. Prepare 1 package of Chakalaka in a wide, shallow pan according to package instructions. Note: Chakalaka may cook more quickly in a shallow pan, so you should add more water as needed until the beans are tender.

  2. When the beans are almost tender and almost all of the liquid is absorbed, make 4 divots in the chakalaka using a large spoon. Then, carefully crack an egg into each of the 4 divots. Let cook until the whites are set but yolk is still runny, about 5-7 minutes.

  3. Garnish the dish with crumbled feta and sliced scallions. Split into individual portions and serve alongside crusty toasted bread.
