Method
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Spread bread thinly with margarine and press slices into a muffin tin, spread-side down.
  3. In a large bowl, lightly whisk eggs, then stir in baked beans and cheese. Spoon egg mixture into the bread cups. Bake for 20 minutes until egg has set.


Recipe tip

  • Serve as a snack on days where more foods from the meat/ alternatives food group are required.
  • For best results use fresh, ‘sandwich’ sliced bread. If using less fresh or thicker ‘toast’ sliced bread, trim crusts and lightly roll with a rolling pin.
  • Trimmed crusts can be baked and served with dips as an afternoon tea snack.
  • Use mountain bread or filo pastry instead of bread for variety.
  • Serve with mixed vegetables or salad for a main meal.
