Microwaved Baked Beans Recipe

This is a no-pride recipe – it is basically a can of baked beans in disguise. There is no “real” cooking involved as I let my microwave do all the work. When I was in school, I remembered the rice stall had this hot dog with baked beans dish which I liked very much. This is my lazy way of recreating it. I also added some lettuce and diced peppers for colour & fiber.

Microwaved Baked Beans Recipe

This easy dish of microwaved baked beans goes well with rice.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 5 mins


  • 1 small can 9(250 grams) baked beans
  • 2 to 3 hot dogs sliced thinly
  • 1/2 bell pepper diced; for colour, use red and green/yellow peppers
  • a few lettuce leaves shredded thinly


  1. Empty baked beans into a microwavable deep plate. Add hot dog. Cover with microwave-safe cling wrap and leave a small opening. Microwave for about 2 minutes on high or until warm.
  2. Use a spoon to mix the sausages and baked beans well.
  3. Microwave the bell peppers for 2 minutes on high.
  4. Mix in half of the cooked bell peppers.
  5. Garnish the dish with shredded lettuce and the remaining bell peppers. Serve with rice.

    I love baked beans with fried eggs. Haven’t tried with sausages. I’m sure it tastes very delicious.

    I’m not a big fans of canned bean. People here like to mix with with pork. So, I think pork and beans baked in maple syrup is one of Canadian comfort foods.

    But, your picture has made me think to make baked beans for my hubby. He should eat more beans since he is a pesco vegetarian.

      never tried baked beans with maple syrup. Sounds like an interesting combo. Maybe you can feature the dish with other meat substitution :)

    What a great idea! The end result looks gorgeous and I never would have guessed it came out of a can!
