Recipe Of The Week

57 Ways with Heinz Baked Beans, originally uploaded by Bollops.

Like Kano I'm getting back into cooking so I'm looking to try out some new, more bizarre flavours. In the first installment this week we go for a portion of Baked Bean Fritters. Warn your neighbours cause the wind speed is about to be increased...

You will need:

1& 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, salt & pepper (not the rap outfit, although playing it in the background isn't a bad idea), 4 eggs, 2 tins of beans, a green pepper, 1 small onion, a bit of brown sugar, garlic powder and some oil (they say a cup but boy, I don't want a heart attack just yet).

Mix up you flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and eggs until well blended. Add the remaining ingredients, except the reserved sauce and the oil. In a large skillet (dunno what this is either), heat the oil over medium-high heat. Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls into the oil; brown fritters on both sides, turning when the sides begin to bubble, after about 1 minute. When fritters are golden and crispy all over, drain on a paper towel lined plate. Repeat until all the batter is used or your bowels can't take the strain. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the reserved baked bean sauce over low heat until warm. Serve as a dipping sauce with the fritters.
