Lift your baked beans to another level with this simple recipe.
I’m not the biggest fan of the tinned baked beans, although I do eat them in cafes or pubs when served together with the full English breakfast. So when at home, I try to make the tinned beans better, much better. This is a one pan dish, easy and quick to make, and you can eat it straight from the frying pan.
See the exact ingredients that you need below, watch the short video, only 1 minute 44 seconds, and elevate your own breakfast, or just the baked beans.
- 1 tsp lard (or 25 ml oil)
- 2 rashers of smoked or unsmoked bacon
- 1 small red onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 red chili
- 250 g tinned baked beans
- 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
- 1 tbsp light soy sauce
- 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
- black pepper
- 2 eggs
- spring garlic (optional)
- Crisp up the bacon in a frying pan. Use lard or oil, whatever you prefer. Remove and discard excess fat if any.
- Add the chopped onion, garlic and the sliced chili. Cook for a couple of minutes.
- Get the baked beans into the pan, add paprika, pour in the soy sauce, Worchestershire sauce and season with black pepper. No salt or sugar needed, the beans have enough of that. Plus the bacon is salty.
- Cook to warm through for 2-3 minutes. Break in the eggs, cover and cook on a low heat for a further 3 minutes.
- Garnish with chopped spring garlic, or parsley.
