This recipe is SO much better if cooked in the oven rather than under the grill. Also, it really really needed spicing up, so chilli oil made a huge improvement, along with plenty of black pepper, instead of the suggested herbs. It was far too bland originally.

Unfortunately a very bland meal, even though I added chillies and Mexican spices.

This was not a great recipe at all really. Very boring, like a plate of really bad student grub. Half of it ended up going in the bin and the dog!

Delicious! I added a couple of leeks to the onions, just because I had some in the kitchen garden. It worked!

Basically, just beans and breadcrumbs! Very boring, with no particular flavour. Would be helped by a layer of sliced tomatoes or similar to give it some moisture.
Won't be doing it again.

This was ok, I used butter beans as they are our favourite, but I found the sauce a little rich for me, it made a change but I don't think I would make it again.

This was absolutely divine and has been a huge hit every time I've made it. Can't seem to get flageolet beans though, so have been using canellini instead. Have also made it using sour cream when I could't get creme fraiche, which made the beans really saucy and decadent.

This recipie was delicious and had a lovely crunchy topping. I have used it as a main meal but also as a veg dish when I have had a party of people round for a meal. Everyone thought it was great and it was simple to make. Will keep it as a good stand by.
