The Easy Way To Give Canned Baked Beans A Fancy Au Gratin Twist
You can create a decadent dish that could be on the menu at any fancy restaurant just by using ingredients similar to a traditional au gratin recipe and a can of baked beans.
Gratin recipes are satisfying oven-baked dishes that offer crumbly toppings of browned breadcrumbs and cheese that have been broiled into crunchy crowns of gold.
To give canned beans the au gratin treatment, add chopped fresh herbs to breadcrumbs and sprinkle them on top of beans, layered with your choice of cheese, then bake in the oven.
Experiment with cheeses you like, and add spices like paprika or cinnamon to enhance the tastes that will complement the other dishes you intend to serve.
Beans made au gratin and served with toast can give the fan-favorite beans on toast some seriously stiff competition.
