Author Notes

I mean, who doesn’t love baked beans, bar my ladies brother? Well, for those that don’t I wanted to take them up a notch, with my homemade baked beans!

Now, I am not saying these are any better than Heinz or other purveyors of baked beans (I prefer the Tescos ones to be honest), but you do have the ability to pimp them out.

As I carry a multitude of different beans in my cupboards, so the usual Haricot bean can be immediately changed. Then you are going to make a tomato sauce. Hmm, spices can be changed, herbs can be changed.

I suppose what I mean to say is, beans can be made your own very easily, you just gotta do it.

Anyway, at the very least, who doesn’t love a good fart joke? —FatLadFood
