Really lovely but again we didn't use the baked beans, used a can of mixed beans instead and added extra tomato.

Good midweek meal but wouldn't rush to make it again. Served with crusty bread.

Just wondered if anyone has tried freezing this dish, and if so, at what point is the best to do so? Thanks

Haven't cooked this yet, but will do, in the coming week. However, it will be with haricot beans and chopped tomatoes, rather than baked beans.

Very nice. Might not bother again with the breadcrumbs even though that was delicious too. It was nice to have butter beans, as I hardly use them.
