Baked bean nests
( SERVES 8 )
These old-fashioned favourites are so simple to make for breakfast or for after-school munchies, and are ideal for a shared lunch at school. Of course, you can swap the beans for spaghetti or even try bacon and egg.
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Butter the bread slices generously and place a slice (buttered side against the tin) in each muffin hole, pushing down to create a flat bottom and sides like a nest.
- Combine the baked beans, beaten egg and grated cheese, then spoon mix into the bread cases.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until the bread is golden and the beans are set in the centre.
