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!
