Made this the other night and it was so yummy! I didn’t have baked beans but had a can of red kidney beans so I added some home-made tomato sauce and some bbq sauce to the mix. I forgot to put in the baby spinach but it didn’t really matter (I’ll remember for next time hahaha). It was an absolute winner and we have 2 containers left over in the freezer — just so delicious! The fam. is now calling it Cowboy’s Balls!!

Made this tonight with a few little changes , absolutely delicious!!!
Used 2x Heinz’s baked beans in ham sauce and 1x Heinz bb in bbq sauce, with a good squirt of bbq added.
Added an extra bit of Heinz tomato soup (the smallest size can)
Only used one tray of meatballs and a packet of Hans Ham steaks (3 in the packet) sliced into 1cm cubes.
Hubby also cut up some Old El Paso jalapeños on top of his for a bit of kick.👌🏼
Served with sour dough, pecorino cheese and fried egg.
