This came about one morning when baked beans were requested for brekkie by one of my daughters and I didn’t feel like the ones I normally made.
So I set about creating something a bit different and we ended up finishing the entire batch. Needless to say, from then on that was the recipe for baked beans in our house.
You can find an improved version of this recipe, along with a great selection of breakfasts, soups, dinners and desserts – in my cookbook, Feel Good Food Made Easy.
