What You'll Need

  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 (16-ounce) cans baked beans, drained and sauce reserved
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and eggs until well blended. Add remaining ingredients, except reserved sauce and oil.

In response to tamibaker........or anyone using baked beans. Always add a little cloves to the beans. I use Bush's beans, add a little brown sugar and cloves. You would be amazed what cloves does for the beans.

what kind of baked beans? the traditional ones or those ghastly tomato things?

Hi there! The Test Kitchen used Grandma Brown's baked beans.

What a disappointment that there is not any nutritional information with your recipes. It kind of makes no sense for me since I am watching what I eat. You state that you are reworking old favorites with less calories but don't provide the critical information telling me fat, calories, sodium contet....

Not to be ugly but, if you are trying to watch what you eat maybe you should not be looking at recipes that requires frying as the cooking process. Regardless if they list the nutritional info or not..... Just saying.

A lot of time and ingredients for a ho-hum dish. Better to just open the can of baked beans and omit all the other unneccesary steps.
