I am going to try making beanies this week. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan title. Text with a plate and knife and fork

We ate everything last week! Hooray! It was a good week for food. Every meal was eaten and enjoyed. Simple meals like Fish fingers, chips and spaghetti hoops even though my teen said it was a childish meal. Hmmf. What is wrong with being childish now and again. I told her to make her own tea if she wanted something different. She soon changed her tune.

This week I am going to try making "beanies". I think they are a north east thing? The only place we can get them from is the chip shop in Amble. I always get two when we visit Amble. One to eat then and one to bring home and eat later.

Beanies are baked beans wrapped in sausage meat which is battered and deep fried. I tried making them a good few years ago but I made them too thick and the sausage meat wasn't cooked in the middle. This time it will work and if they do I will write a blog post on how to make them.

This week on the menu we have:

Monday - Beanies (hopefully) and chips.
Tuesday - Chicken curry and rice.
Wednesday - Minced Beef Hotpot.
Thursday - Spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - Burgers in buns with corn on the cob & salad.
Sunday - A roast dinner of some sort.

  1. My first thought was "ok-aaaaaay, what on earth are beanies?" I thought you were going to be sewing some small teddy bears. They're definitely not from round 'ere (South East). I hope they turn out well I'm looking forward to seeing how to make them, it seems hard enough to wrap a hard-boiled egg in sausage meat I can imagine a soggy heap of beans is even more difficult!

  2. Beanies are a new one on me. Thought you were about to take up knitting/crochet and make hats. Hope they turn out well. I do a baking version of scotch eggs, which must be a similar idea, as deep fat fryer and me don't mix. Meal planning is on my list of things to do this morning. #MMBC

  9. I hope you don't mind me posting here, I have tried Beanies about 30 years ago when chip shops used to sell them. I believe they were made by a company in Washington before they went out of business.

    These days I make my own for the other half and daughter, They love them. I use 400 grams of seasoned sausage meat divided into six portions of approx 66 grams. I roll each portion between two pieces of grease proof paper till they are about 1/4 inch think, Remove the top piece of paper, Lay the pattie on the palm of my hand and gently remove the second piece of paper. Next I put the beans in the centre of the pattie with as little of the bean sauce as possible. Next I bring the edges of the pattie over of the beans and gently seal all the sausage meat together and shape it similar to a fish cake. Next step would be to coat it batter and drop them into a deep fat fryer with the basket removed, Turning them occasionally. Remove from fryer after 10 - 15 minutes or golden brown.

    Serve them with chips and the baked beans that were left over from the filling.
