Ramadhan Mubarak & Labor Day


It is a long weekend for the United States for Sept 1 is Labor Day. This year it also coincides with the first day of Ramadhan where all Muslims around the world will be fasting from dawn to dusk for the whole month before celebrating Eid. I am taking this advantage wishing all muslim Ramadhan Mubarak.



This Malaysian-ised baked beans was my favourite when I grew up. I usually have it for breakfast but I think it is also good for sahur (or suhoor or sehri or sahari in other languages) which is an Islamic term referring to the meal consumed early in the morning by Muslims before fasting. It is easy and fast to make.

Baked Beans with Deep Fried Egg


Serves 2-3

1 can baked beans -I used Malaysian made which comes in tomato sauce.
1/2 onion, sliced
1 red chili, sliced
3tbsp ketchup, if you use the regular baked beans
salt & pepper to taste
2-3 eggs, deep fried
2 tbsp veggie oil


1. Deep fry eggs and set aside

2. In a wok or pan, saute the onion, add in the baked beans and lightly stir.

3. Add salt and pepper, taste to your liking

4. Add chili and eggs. Gently stir.

Serves with toast.

This looks good! Growing up, we ate the same thing too. I missed the baked beans back home. I really love the tomato base instead of the BBQ ones here (vegetarian baked beans). My mom used to fix the bake beans with fried eggs and homemade fries! Sedap!

Mat Salo said...

Sorry for the belated Ramadhan Mubarrak Kareem wishes, Farina...

BTW, it's so cruel of you, Sis. Why? It's mid afternoon and I was just outside on the main deck.. the sun sizzling down on me when I decided to cool myself in my air-conditioned cabin. And visit your blog...

Aargh... cannot tahan seeing all the goodies here!!!

I pun minat bake beans tomato dengan telur! Slurrrp!

I like baked beans with bread or toast. When I found Ayam Brand had baked beans with parmesan cheese, I almost scream coz I'm a big fan of cheese.
