Beans on Toast

Recipe by SarahBeth
READY IN: 20mins


  • 1
    (14 ounce) can of heinz baked beans in tomato sauce
  • 4
    large eggs
  • 4
    slices bread, for toasting
  • plenty butter (or equivalent if you prefer)


  • Empty the baked beans into a small saucepan.
  • Prepare a pan to either poach or fry the eggs (your choice, but poached is better).
  • Start toasting the bread. How many slices is, of course, up to you and your appetite at the time, but at least 2 slices each are needed for the beans, plus any additional slices for the jam later.
  • While the toast is toasting, don't forget to make a large pot of tea. It is an absolute fact that you cannot eat Beans on Toast without lots of tea.
  • Once the toast is on, gently warm the beans, and start to cook the eggs.
  • As the toast is done, place it on pre-warmed plates, and apply lots of butter to taste.
  • Divide the beans between the two plates, spreading them over the 2 slices of toast.
  • Place the cooked eggs on top of the beans, sprinkle a little pepper, (and if you prefer, maybe a dash of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce), and enjoy.
