NSW:   EVERYDAY  ACT: GREEN

Ingredients

 Cooking oil spray, to grease muffin tins
 20 slices wholemeal bread
 6 eggs
 550 g baked beans (preferably salt-reduced)
 10 tbsp light tasty cheese, grated
 Ground pepper, to taste

Method

1

Preheat fan-forced oven to 200°C. Spray muffin tins with cooking oil.

2

Remove the crust from each slice of bread and flatten with a rolling pin. Press one slice of bread into each well of the muffin tin and flatten the bread along the sides and bottom of the well.

3

Whisk eggs in a bowl. Mix in the baked beans, cheese and pepper.

4

Spoon an even amount of the mixture into each bread cup and finish by sprinkling a little more cheese on top.

5

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the baked bean mixture has set and the bread is golden. Cooking time may be longer if baking multiple tins at once; rotate tins in oven if needed.

6

Remove from oven and leave to cool in tray for 5 minutes before serving.

Variations

  • Swap baked bean mixture with a vegetable quiche mixture to make ‘Egg and Veggie Bread Cups’.

Tips

  • The crusts could be used to make cinnamon or garlic flavoured bread stick snacks, or croutons for salads.
