Baked Beans with Crispy Bacon Bits
According to Kathryne our Shop Manager this is something of a delicacy where she lives. The secret is to cook the bacon until it is really crispy and then cut it into small pieces and add to your beans and heat through.
With a hungry 10 year old to feed, Joanne swears by this as a special camping breakfast treat with a Mexican flavour, a beanie version of Huevos Rancheros.
You'll need a tin of baked beans, 2 tbsp olive oil, a chopped onion, 1 chopped red pepper, 2 tbsp tomato puree, 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic (optional), 1 or 2 chillies chopped; or 1 tsp of ground chilli, 4 eggs, 2 tortilla wraps
Heat your oil in a large frying pan and then add the onion and peppers and cook until soft. This should take about 5 minutes. Then add the tomoato puree, garlic and fresh chillies or chilli powder and cook for another minute before adding the beans and stir well and cook for another 5 minutes.
Make 4 dents in the top of the mixture then crack the eggs into each one. Put a lid on the pan or cover with tin foil and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes until the eggs have cooked.
While your eggs are cooking, warm your tortillas then serve alongside your Mexican breakfast feast. Vamos!!!
Jacket Spud Beans - otherwise known as The Best Baked Beans Ever.
Thanks to Nicole who works at our shop at Elsecar Heritage Centre for sharing this one with us.
She uses 2 cans baked beans (or beans with sausages), 2-3 tablespoons ketchup, 2-3 teaspoons mustard, 500g bacon chopped into little chunks (smoked, unsmoked, streaky, whatever you like), one pepper (any colour), 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar and 4 chopped spring onions
You need to heat a pan over your campfire or camping stove and then fry your bacon pieces until crispy. Add the peppers and spring onions and cook over a few minutes until they are soft. Then add the baked beans and the rest of the ingredients and cook for another 5 minutes until hot and bubbly.
Chilli with Baked Beans
Any student will agree, adding baked beans to a chilli rather than kidney beans is far tastier and, even better as it makes a bigger pot so there's seconds for everyone. Make it as hot as you dare!!!!!
Baked Bean Pizzas
Moving on a level from the baked beans and crispy bacon bits. Use them as a topping for a pizza. You need a pizza base, flat bread or tortilla put in a frying pan. Top with your baked beans and grate some cheese over the beans. When the cheese has melted your pizza is ready.
Baked Bean Toasties
A homage to the much loved Breville sandwich maker of yesteryear. You will have to improvise a little with some foil and a burger or fish grill holder thingy (think that's the technical term).
Stir a blob or two of English mustard and a few drops of Worcestershire Sauce into your beans. Grill your sausages, fry some onions and then.... it's hotdog assembly time. Open up your hotdog bun. Carefully place your sausage in the bun. top with the fried onions and beans. Press the bun to together and enjoy....
Little Trekkers Baked Bean Bubble and Squeak
We think we may have invented something here. Scoop out the insides of a leftover jacket potato (if there is such a thing as a leftover jacket potato)! Place in a bowl with a couple of spoonfuls of backed beans. Now get your hand in the mixture to make a couple of patties. Heat some oil in a pan over the campfire or stove and add the patties. Heat over a few minutes on each side until cooked through. Serve with a good dollop of brown sauce.
Baked Bean Pasta
The foodie gourmets amongst you will know that baked beans and cheese are a classic combination. So why not add them to your favourite pasta shapes (or spaghetti for all you Lady and the Tramp fans)? Makes a change from jacket spuds.
Cold Baked Beans and Salad
Does this really count, not sure...One fussy eater we know loves to serve a side dish of cold baked beans with his salad, a little like you would serve coleslaw???!!!!
