Baked Beans Deluxe

Another one of my Mum's recipes that she would make, on the days she and Appa would head out for their weekly game of badminton back in the day when her children were still going to school.....

Cabbage - 450gms shredded
Potatoes - 3 medium sized
Baked beans - 450gms (1can)
Tomato Ketchup - 2tbs
Sweet paprika powder - 1tsp
Onions - 1 large finely chopped
Bechamal Sauce - 1 1/2cups (White Sauce)
Butter - 2tbs

Macerate the shredded cabbage with salt. Place the cabbage into a steamer and let it steam through for about 3minutes. Boil the potatoes, peel and cut into roundels, apply salt and pepper to taste and keep aside. Into a frying pan, melt the butter and sweat the onions, then add the paprika powder, baked beans and ketchup and saute for a while. Grease a baking dish. Arrange the cabbage at the bottom. Cover the leaves with the seasoned baked beans. Sprinkle some cheese over the beans and then top the beans with the potato rounds. Pour the white sauce over the potatoes. Top the potatoes with more cheese and bake in a hot oven at 180C for 25mins. Serve hot.

Bechamal Sauce (White Sauce):
Butter - 2tbs
Plain flour - 3tbs
Milk - 11/2cups
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat. Blend in the flour. Add the milk all at once and cook quickly constantly stirring, till the sauce thickens.
