Mummy's homemade baked beans

As I mentioned yesterday, this one is a favourite of my kids (and us!) and is a great lazy dinner or lunch or a luxurious breakfast. We had ours for lunch yesterday - a winter warmer..

5 pieces shortcut bacon (i.e. only the eyes) diced
1/2 clove garlic, thinly sliced
1 420g can five bean mix, drained
1 420g can cannellini beans, drained
1 cup beef stock
2 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp treacle
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
2 sprigs parsley, chopped.

In a deep frypan, with a little olive oil, cook the bacon, garlic until soft - add Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, treacle, mustard, tomato paste and beef stock and simmer until bubbling. Add beans and stir well, simmer for 15 minutes until thickened.

Serve with crusty bread or on toast. My girls like it with a poached egg. They mix it and put it on their toast, mix their egg into it - it's fun!
