Create a mouth-watering lineup of meal ideas with two Kiwi classics – Wattie’s Baked Beans and mince. It all starts with a delicious Savoury Mince and Beans base – the perfect springboard to a host of hot snacks and dinner ideas the family will love.
For tasty toasties, butter bread, fill with mince and beans mixture, toast them and voilà – you’re the new family favourite too.
Forget store-bought pies. For an easy alternative, fill a flaky pastry case with the tasty mix and top with another layer of pastry. Bake until golden.
For a nutritious lunch, bake potatoes and fill with heated mince and bean mix, garnishing with a sprig of parsley to finish.
For a brunch-time treat, top toast with savoury mince and beans and a perfectly poached egg seasoned with cracked black pepper to taste.
Score a perfect 10 for deliciousness. Spoon dollops of freshly mashed potatoes over the hearty mince and beans base, sprinkle with grated cheese and bake until golden.
Boost the family intake of healthy beans with my new twist on Spaghetti Bolognese. And for an authentic kick sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bellissimo!
