Beans … beans their good for the heart!!! yes I was singing this the other day to a seven-year-old who thought it was hilarious .. (the old ones are the best eh…) I’m a bad influence I know.. but it went on to inspire this recipe. I’m not a fan of baked beans to be honest and I don’t cook with them very often.. which is a pity as their so high in fibre and protein. I put my thinking cap on and had this brain wave of “pork and bean potato hash” (thinking it might not taste so beany).. I had 3 kids here who devoured it (while singing the beans… beans song)
Any slimming world folks this recipe is free (not syning the cooked apple, because life is too short and using the cheese as your healthy a)… This one tastes amazing … even if your like myself and not much of a fan of beans…
But don’t just take my word for it… it also gets the seal of approval from Annabel Karmel.. ..

One Yummy Mummy
- 500g pork mince
- 1 onion
- 1 apple
- 1 tablespoon of sage
- 1 tin of baked beans
- 1 tin of chopped tomato
- 1 tin of mixed beans drained and rinsed (optional)
- 6 potatoes
- a handful of grated cheddar
Pre heat oven to 180c.. you will need a mixing bowl, mini muffin tin or frypan and a casserole dish
whizz up your apple and onion in a food prosesser.. if you don’t have one grate it with a regular cheese grater and add
it to the mixing bowl with the pork mince
make the mixture into balls and either brown them on the pan.. or a “good hack” is to cook them in a muffin tin.. for 15 mins in the oven..
peel and whizz up your potato (grate them as well if you don’t have a food processor)
put your grated potato into a clean tea towel, wringing out all the moisture…
in a casserole dish… add your meatballs … then tomatoes and beans and finish off with the grated potato and
cheese.. cover with tinfoil pit in the oven for 35 mins..
after 35 mins finish off under the grill until the potato is crispy and the cheese has melted
