Baked Bean Fritters

Baked beans are a great easy protein and iron packed meal, but I've never found the stuff very tasty without some additions.
As my littlest is mad keen on fritters, I've been playing around with the idea of baked beans in a fritter, and I think it works quite well. If you don't like the lumpiness of the baked beans you can always give them a bit of a mashing before you put the fritters together.
The end result will depend on the brand of baked beans you use, do check they don't have cheese added to the ingredients.

Baked Bean Fritters

1/2 onion, diced
1 can baked beans
3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste (this will depend on the baked beans your using)
Oil for frying

Fry the diced onion until soft and then place in a bowl with the baked beans and mix through, add the other ingredients and mix well. Fry in the same frypan yo cooked the onion in - turn when you can see the bottoms of the fritters browning and bubbles appear around the edges, cook until the fritters are cooked right through.
These are really nice served with chilli style sauce or chowchow.
