DG's Baked Bean Cases
« on: August 12, 2012, 12:26:26 pm »
I thought I'd post this recipe here so that it is easy to find - thanks DG, it is a little beauty and not just for the kids either  ;)

My baked bean cases which were published in Additive Free Lunch Box Ideas are always a winner (and I even won a prize for best additive free lunch box recipe)

•12 slices wholemeal bread (crust removed)
•2 tablespoons melted butter
•1 can 420g baked beans
•4 eggs
•Grated cheese


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Using a rolling pin, roll bread slices lightly until thin. Brush one side with melted butter.
 2. Press buttered side down into a 12 hole muffin tin. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden and crisp.
 3. Spoon baked beans evenly into the bread cases. Lightly whisk the eggs and pour over the baked beans. Sprinkle grated cheese  on top of each bread case.
 4. Bake for further 15-20 minutes or until hot and golden.

These freeze well and can be eaten hot or cold.

a great way to get extra protein into kids diets.

I love baked beans. We're off on a basic camping trip  later, (not the retreat!) so these would be lovely.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I haven't made the bigger muffin version, I made mine in my mini muffin tray - bite sized little morsels which the adults loved.  Funnily enough GD & GS didn't like them  :o  Maybe they weren't hungry at the time - these are supposed to be for kids ;D

I made these for dinner last night and they were great, so quick and easy for a Friday night! :D

They're now high on my list of "go-to" recipes for lunches or dinners, thanks DG and Judy! :) :) :)
