Vancouver Baked Bean Sandwich

Total Time

I found this on a Canadian restaurant recipe site and had to post it. It's been my favorite sandwich since I was a kid, so I couldn't believe it wasn't already posted on Zaar. Perfect way to use up leftover baked beans too. Interestingly, the article said that canned baked beans were illegal to import into Canada until after the Second World War because of the ratio of beans to tomato sauce Who knew!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 slice sourdough bread
  • 13 cup leftover baked beans
  • 1 ounce shredded cheddar cheese (or sliced thin)


  1. Place bread on small baking sheet, spread baked beans over bread and top with cheese.
  2. Broil in oven until cheese is melted.
  3. Enjoy!

This is also one of my favourite ways to have baked beans, sometimes I'll grill the cheese or sometimes I'll make these in a jaffle iron, today I used barbeque flavour baked beans with the cheese...mmmm delicious. made for ZWT 4.

I used to eat baked beans on bread with butter all the time so I knew I would love this recipe. This takes no time at all to make and I added a light layer of butter to my bread. Definitely use the sourdough bread! I used a can of Bush's beans - original flavor for supper the night before and had this sandwich for lunch. YUMMM!!! Made and reviewed for ZWT 4.
