I made this on ANZAC Day 2021 when the boys left for Dawn Sevice at 4am. It was really tasty and tomatoey just how I like it. Yum.

I think that’d be nice 🙂

Great recipe. Evan got a large portion in the freezer. Easy to do & tastes fantastic. For adults this is way better than the canned beans! Thank you for this recipe.

Just served these bad boys at a post dawn service breakfast for Anzac Day. They were a hit and at least 3 couples asked for the recipe! The only change I would make (personally), would be to use onion powder in place of the onion, although I cooked it down with the bacon, it wasn’t enough cooking time to completely soften them up. But that’s minor!
