Recipe: Smoky Baked Beans

Oh well, I suppose as a student you had to expect me to bring out the heinz baked beans eventually!!! These delicious smoky beans with bacon are fab on top of a jacket potato, or on the side of a couple of grilled pork chops. Of course, this dish is also fabulous on toast- dare I say it! Well, if numbers of Michelin starred chefs relax at home with beans on toast (and they do!) then it's good enough for me.

Smoky Baked Beans with Bacon (side dish for two) 76p per serving.

1 tsp olive oil
1 rasher smoked back bacon, diced
½ white onion, diced
1 x (410g) tin Heinz Baked Beans
¼ tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp cumin
½ tsp chilli powder
½ tsp sugar
1 tsp Worchester sauce
Salt and pepper
Yoghurt and chopped chives to garnish.

1. Fry the bacon and onion in the olive oil, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Add the baked beans, paprika, cumin, chilli powder, sugar and Worchester sauce, and cook for 3 minutes, uncovered.
3. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and garnish with natural yoghurt and fresh chives- serve!

  1. Yep, you don't need a Michelin star to be able to make yummy baked beans. But I'd forget them as a side dish and eat them as a meal!  ツ
