About this recipe: 'Begsy' was my Aunty Beryl. When her mother died, she brought up my uncles. This is something she used to feed them on a regular basis. As the family grew up and new families emerged, this recipe was passed on but we all have our different take on it. I'm not going to lie, it isn't going to be the most healthy meal you'll ever eat but it's one of the simplest, heart warming and filling ones. One where you can almost guarantee clean plates from everyone, including children.
One of my children didn't used to like tomatoes so we used to substitute these for baked beans.
If you'd like a spicier dish, you can substitute the plain cheese for a Mexicana (chilli cheese).
