Bacon and Baked Bean Bake

Bacon and Baked Bean Bake

I am a big fan of Baked beans.  I am a big fan of Bacon.  To my mind this is a match made in heaven.

What is it about Baked Beans? 

They are derided as a staple food of hippy students; easily heated in a microwave and very cheap. 
British supermarkets may sell store brand baked beans for less than thirty pence a can premium organic brands can see prices at nearly 80 pence but Baked beans are a classic example of aloss leader, a product sold by supermarkets for an abnormally low price, often less than cost.

Just be educated however, all your life you've been lied to, as they are not baked beans, they're stewed beans!

You can read more about Baked Beans here  and then try this recipe for your family.
