There we have it; a smokey baked beans recipe, perfect for pairing with a Vale of Mowbray pork pie! We served our beans with a medium pork pie, they’re an individual pie so you’re really getting a treat and are big enough to be filling as a meal. If you prefer, you could grab a packet of our mini pork pies and share them with a friend or slice up a large pork pie. We also decided to serve with a blue cheese salad, the tomatoes compliment the base flavour of the baked beans and the rocket adds in a new peppery flavour to the dish. If you fancy, HP Brown Sauce would also work wonderfully with the flavours, a true Autumn treat!
Here in Yorkshire, the crisp air and turning leaves are already giving us Autumn vibes and we’re beginning to enjoy warming up our pork pies again to give us a warm treat when we get in from the colder walks home. What’s your favourite thing about Autumn? Though we’ve loved Summer and the heatwave we’ve had in Britain, we admit to being excited for Autumn. The festive events begin with Halloween and Bonfire Night, the colder nights bringing a little magic to the air as we switch on the fire and settle down under blankets to enjoy a movie or two. Of course, it goes without saying that when we’re settling down with friends and family in front of the telly, we all have a warm pork pie in hand!
We hope you’re enjoying our recipe section, if you do make any of our accompaniments for a pork pie, make sure to tag us on social media, we’d love to see!
