British Beans on Toast

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by BBCFan

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.

Top Review by Aanders Jarl

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.
