WAIT - I need super easy dinners all year round ;-)
This quick & easy meal idea can be served by itself, or with any side you like.
They also make great lunchbox items(with a lid) or a filling snack.
You will need a pie-maker! I picked one up for less than $15 a few years back & its just been a really handy item to have in the kitchen! To be honest I don't often use it for pastry pies(other than for my husband) but its amazing the amount of other uses it has too!
If you don't wish to use a pie-maker this idea would also work in a ramekin & baked in the oven!
All you need to do is use the bottom cutter & roughly cut out a piece of bread (old bread works well too!).
Line the pie dish with the bread & pour in baked beans in any flavour you desire!
Close the lid & in 7 minutes you'll have yummy as bread-bean pies :-)
I like these without a lid, but you can put a bread lid on too if you want!
Want something other than baked beans?
Try some of these recipes as fillings too:
--> Spiced chick peas
--> Lentil bolognese
--> Bean bolognese
--> Carrots, peas & corn bean stew
--> Silverbeet & sweet potato stew
