Great snack to munch on while watching your favorite British programs. Drink with Strongbow cider ;-) Tip: DO NOT USE AMERICAN Pork & Beans, Boston Baked Beans or "Bush's Beans" etc... ONLY Heinz or Batchelor's brand please, otherwise it might be gross. Don't worry; most American grocery stores sell HEINZ and BATCHELOR'S, in the International/European/English/Irish aisle. I've been all over the US and found them in Safeway, Kroger, Stop & Shop, etc. I've never not been able to find one of those two brands in the USA.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices bread (white is traditional, but I use low-carb rye)
  • 1 (220 g) canof heinz baked beans in tomato sauce (both products come in a blue can, DO NOT USE AMERICAN Pork & Beans or "Bush's Beans" etc. ONLY Heinz)
  • Worcestershire sauce


  1. Toast bread.
  2. In a saucepan, heat up the beans.
  3. Spoon onto toast and top with Worcestershire sauce. (You could use Parmesan cheese too).
  4. ENJOY!

I just tried this for the first time and I see why it's a hit. I'd been hunting for high protein breakfasts that are non-meat/non-dairy, thinking beans or lentils, and figured I'd better try it as my wife is of English ancestry. Thank you to the other reviewers! -- I can't wait to eat it again, maybe with some HP sauce.

Thank YOU for posting an honest-to-goodness "regular" recipe for Beans on Toast...the offiicial food of college students and hangover sufferers! LOL I've been eating this for years, just as you posted it and Heinz Baked Beans from the U.K. are the ONLY way to make it! As a twist, when we're really ravenous is to toast the bread and butter it, make the beans, and add a slice of good English Cheddar on top of the toast before dumping on the beans. Even when I have a pocketful of money, sometimes you just need the simplest and cheapest of comfort foods to make the day feel better!
