Help................ We live in France and MIL sent us over some baked beans! Lovely - except they are the huge size catering cans! Presumably once they are opened, they have to be eaten within a few days. What else can i do with them except the obvious 'on toast' and 'with jackets'!

Many thanks,

You could stick them in a soup or casserole and freeze maybe?

Good idea thanks. They will bulk out a casserole nicely.

Casserole is good with sausages in.

I also like making toasties with them with cheese.

Also favourite quick tea as a teenage/student was pasta cheese and beans. The bean juice acts as a pasta sauce!

can also do a casserole with chicken or pork and i add a glug of tom sauce, garlic clove, chopped onion, glug of white wine, glug of stock and mixed herbs or thyme.

Never tried any of what I am about to suggest but reckon they would be lush:-

Shepherds pie with some baked beans in the mince

Baked bean pizza

Giant sausage roll with baked beans (layer of sausage meat with beans in the middle wrapped in pastry)
