I cut the recipe back to 2 servings. A small can of beans (225g). Because it was so small I made to recipe stove top with excellent results. It didn't look as pretty but it tasted just as good. I chopped the bacon, used pickled onion vinegar. A perfect side dish for Sunday Brunch. Thanks ellie for this do again recipe

I made a double batch of this recipe to serve at our annual pot-luck dinner and it was well received. I only had a bit left to warm up for my lunch the next day.
