These were very tasty beans. I really like the addition of savory, nice change. Wasn't sure what to expect with the breadcrumbs, but it all worked really well together. Depending on how you like your beans, 30 mins could be overdone for you...might shorten that up a bit next time. Nice and easy, thanks Ballarat!
