Description (Some HTML is OK)

A cheap, filling, mostly healthy dinner - vegetarian depending upon your choice of extras. Nice with a crisp green salad, or fresh fruit for pudding.


Makes 4 servings

  • Filling
  • 1 tbsp olive oil / butter
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp treacle
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce (or vegetarian equivalent)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 3 large (454g) cans baked beans
  • Optional extras - one (or none!) of:
  • 4 oz cooked ham, diced
  • 4 frankfurters, sliced
  • 100g bacon, sliced (cook with the onions if you use this)
  • 4 quorn sausages, sliced (no need to cook first)
  • Topping
  • 2 lbs floury potatoes
  • 2 oz butter
  • 4 fl oz milk
  • seasoning
  • 4 oz mature cheddar, grated

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)

Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F.

Peel the potatoes and chop into evenly sized pieces, and boil in salted water while making the filling.

Heat the oil in a large pan, and saute the onion (and bacon if using) until cooked. Add the sugar, treacle, worcestershire sauce, vinegar and mustard; simmer for a minute. Add the beans, and any of the optional proteins other than bacon. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 2 minutes. Pour into a casserole dish.

When the potatoes are fork-tender, drain and mash with the butter, milk and 3 oz of the cheese. Spread over the bean mix and roughen the top with a fork. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese.

Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the top browned.
