  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 500g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 400g natural yoghurt
  • ½ can Branston Baked Beans
  • 100g grated cheese
  • 75g leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ bunch fresh chives, finely chopped
  • A few tablespoons of melted butter


  1. Combine the self-raising flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the yoghurt and mix until a shaggy dough forms, then turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly floured work surface and knead until mostly smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. The dough should feel a little sticky. Return the dough to the mixing bowl and cover with a tea towel while you prepare the filling.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the filling ingredients and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Divide the dough into 4 and roll each piece out into a 20cm-ish disk. Add a quarter of the filling to each disk, then wrap each up into a ball to seal. Gently roll each of the balls out into a 20cm-ish disk.
  4. Heat a griddle, cast-iron or non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the flatbreads for 3 minutes per side, or until browned on both sides and cooked through.
  5. To serve, brush with a bit of melted butter (or garlic butter if you’re feeling fancy!), then tuck in and enjoy!
