  • ½ onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 rashers bacon, diced
  • 420 g can Wattie's Baked Beans
  • 2 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley

  1. Heat a dash of oil in a non-stick frying pan, gently fry onion and bacon until tender but not brown.
  2. In a bowl, combine Wattie’s Baked Beans, cooked onion and bacon, parsley, mashed potatoes, self raising flour and egg yolks. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a clean bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites carefully into the bean mixture with a large metal spoon.
  4. Heat a little oil in the frying pan and cook large spoonfuls over a low to moderate heat for about 3 minutes each side. Keep warm in the oven until the remaining mixture is cooked.
  5. Serve fritters with slices of fresh tomato, rocket and crispy rashers of bacon.
