Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180°C (350°F). Heat a large frying pan, add a little oil and cook the bacon until just crispy.

Add the tomatoes, beans, spinach and rocket. Stir to combine. Cook for a couple of minutes until the spinach and rocket are beginning to wilt.

Stir through the cheese and cream, mix well. Taste and season. Pour the mixture into a large ovenproof dish. Make four wells with the back of a spoon, large enough to hold an egg. Break the eggs into the wells.

Place the dish in the oven and bake until the eggs are just set, 10 to 15 minutes.
