What’s for Breakfast? English Beans and Toast

by in Healthy Recipes, November 10, 2012

eggs and beans on toast
Beans and toast is a breakfast tradition in the UK (it’s both adored and loathed) that has stood the test of time. The story goes that in 1927 an executive at Heinz decided to create a national dish in order to sell more canned beans and an iconic dish was born.

If you’re interested in becoming a convert then try Food Network Magazine’s Baked Eggs and Beans on Toast. We’ve modernized this classic by adding a fresh tomato salad and a baked egg. Make half the recipe to make a more responsible breakfast portion for four. Enjoy!

    This is a staple of more than just Great Britian.

    Chili and eggs on toast in the SW United Staes and parts of Mexico. They add some alvacodo (usually).

    I've been to both GB and Mexico and enjoyed both recipes. I've made your recipe and find it good too.

      Post Script:

      Here I usually add a slice of good cheese and (instead of your tomato salad) a nice slice of tomato (in season) to add some calcium and veggies to this nice basic meal.
