Baked Beans And Cheese Loaf Recipe

Updated on February 24, 2016

These measurements will serve six people.

I remember when I was growing up, we didn't have a lot of money, so my mother always seemed to be coming up with good ideas for making the simplest of foods into great meals.

I have tried over the years to copy her, and sometimes ideas come back to me. This recipe Baked Bean and Cheese Loaf is a variation of the one that my mother made. And it is so easy to bake.

This recipe is great for vegetarians as there is no meat source, or fat involved. The other great thing about it is the fact that you can eat it hot or cold. It's lovely eaten with a salad, but if you prefer hot food, like me, then you can pile up your plate with baked potatoes and loads of vegetables.

You will need:


1 x 227 g / 8 oz of packet of sage and onion stuffing mix.

225 ml /8 fl oz of boiling water.

1 x 450 g /15.9 oz can of baked beans

Salt and fresh ground black pepper.

1 beaten egg

2 teaspoons of cream

75 g / 3 oz chopped nuts.

The topping you can vary according to taste, but tomato and grated cheese is the best.

1. Before you start cooking make sure you grease and line the base of a medium sized loaf tin.

2. Pour the stuffing mix into the boiling water, then add the baked beans, salt and pepper to taste, adding the beaten egg, cream and chopped nuts last.

3. Pour the mixture into the baking tray, taking care to smooth the top level.

4.Make sure you cover it with a piece of greased foil. Bake at 190 C /375 F gas mark 5 for 45 minutes.

5. After the 45 minutes, take it out of the oven, top it with the sliced tomato and cheese or which ever topping you prefer, and pop it back in the oven for about 8-10 minutes.

Follow up notes

If you wish to freeze it, make sure you leave it to cool for at least half and hour before you put it in the freezer. This will allow it to stabilize before freezing. Otherwise it might start to crumble or go mushy in the freezer.

You can vary this recipe by adding peas or any vegetables that you want to add. I always find adding a small drop of tomato sauce to the recipe adds to the taste.

Another good tip is to sprinkle some basil over the tomatoes before adding them to the top of the loaf. This gives a lovely tangy taste to the meal.

      Hi Nell Rose

      I am going to bake this tomorrow as I have two children (fussy eaters) who love beans on toast and this is a far more sophisticated and chic meal. Thanks for this wonderful new recipe.

      I will bookmark it too, I am really trying to get away from meats and beans are a great substitute and I have several recipes but this looks really good and I think I would like the tomatoes and cheese. I knew right off I didn't wanna be in a recipe contest, my best ones are too fattening and I don't want the temptation. There is a poem contest somewhere if its not too late I think I will enter either My Mothers Daffodils or the Motherless Child one, hope its not too late, been busy with work and lose track of time. After midnight, better jump in bed, Habee got 100 did you see?!

      Hi, Audrey, I am a bit of a cheat where the cooking is concerned, my mum used to bake this, I have done it a couple of times and it was great, but I always seem to use the microwave a lot these days! lazy I guess !! thanks again nell

      And here I thought you said you never cooked! Great job, Nellie and now I'm hungry - and it's only 5:30 a.m. here. Meatloaf just can't be right at 5:30 in the morning but perhaps it is 5:00 p.m. somewhere as they say....

      Hi, BJB, thanks for reading it, I must admit I am not a very good cook! I can cook really well when I have the patience, but I am always shoving things in the microwave! But I must admit this one I do like doing. good luck on the fast, doctors always tell you what to eat that is healthy, and then go home and eat a big mac! thanks nell

      I really do cook a lot. One thing I have learned is those simple dishes some times are the best. Which makes us all good cooks.

      I have to fast this week for a blood test for my blood sugar. I understand. The things we must do to make our doctors happy.

I know how you feel, I have had operations before, like my kidney, and even though I was terrified I was also starving! how does that work? lol thanks for reading it, I have no idea why I did a cooking one, I have dried up with all the ideas now, so I am giving up! ha ha thanks again nell

      Pure cruelty, that's what it is. Looks like the ideal home cooked meal and right now I'm on a 42 hours liquid diet for a routine medical exam tomorrow. I'm on hour 27 and you're tempting me something terrible.

      Hi, Green Lotus, I know what you mean! lol i don't know what I was thinking of doing this! I am a useless cook. i can do this one though so I thought I would add it. My mum found it in an old cookbook ages ago, and changed some of the ingredients, like she added baked beans instead of other stuff, can't remember what! I won't be doing any more though as I drew a blank when I was thinking about it! ha ha thanks nell

      Hi, Hello Hello, it does taste good, but only when my mum cooked it, mine isn't bad, but mums always do it better! thanks again nell

      Hi, febriedethan, thanks for reading it, it does taste nice, if even a bit odd to put those things together! thanks nell

      Hi Nell. I cannot believe this is made without meat judging from the photo! It looks like good old fashioned meat loaf. Certainly worth a try. Good luck with your entry. I'm deferring to the cooks, chefs and dietitions amongst us to handle the competition this month. The last one on health nearly killed me. LOL.

      Hi, Valerie, you start early! good morning. I actually wrote this the other day for the competition, but to be quiet honest, I know i am a crap cook, and I think this will be the only one I do! I realised when I wrote it, I ain't cut out for this! ha ha back to ghosts and strange things. have a great day. Nell

      Looks tasty. You must be entering the contest. I just can't make myself write about food right now, though I've done it a lot in the past. If you could enter something you've already written, I would have many hubs to enter, but I just don't want to write about food at present. I will try this recipe. And am voting it up. (: v
