Baked beans is a dish traditionally containing white beans that are parboiled and then, in the US, baked in sauce at low temperature for a lengthy period.Baked beans are a source of protein and are high in fibre, so are not a bad choice, especially on wholegrain toast or a jacket potato. But they do contain salt and sugar. Too much salt over time can contribute to high blood pressure, while sugar adds energy (calories) without any other nutritional value.
I never knew baked beans could be this good. I never knew baked beans could be improved upon. I never knew baked beans could be such a triumph, such a prayer, such a song.They can be made the night before, but wait until you're ready to bake the beans to add the bacon on top to ensure optimum crispness.Baked beans are actually cooked inside the can. The raw beans are first soaked and blanched to soften them. They are then sealed in the can with the sauce and secret spice blend and steamed to fully cook and kill any bacteria.
