    I love 'em.

    None of the less salt and sugar variety, though. Needs to be the full deal.

    Noone has mentioned curried beans yet. Oh yes, mix in a bit of your favourite curry paste to your taste (not powder) and you've got a great tasting mini meal that hits the Ruby Murray spot.

    This is a problem, if you eat in cafes. Worse, if you prefer white bread- or the cafe only serves the pallid varieties. Three-day-old wholemeal, with butter, is my perfect accompaniment for beans.

    I buy cheap beans and expensive bread.

    I like mine with the toast on a side plate, and the beans surrounded by lorne, eggs, bacon, mushrooms and BLACK PUDDING!!!

    With a cup of builder's.

    I was curious, so I tried it once. It was OK, but not something I'd either seek out or avoid. Must be cultural.

    Heck yea!!! Crisp rye toast, a slice of sharp cheddar, Jackie’s world famous baked beans, & a few jalapeño slices. That is good eating right there. Occasionally we’ll add sliced hot dogs for beans & weenies on toast. Easily a ***** meal for a .* price. Yum

    Maybe its just a U.S.A thing? Doesn't the sight of this bloodsausage,sauerkraut strudel make your mouth water?

    I also used to love the fried lambs kidneys on toast for breakfast that my mum used to cook-up for me before I headed off to school. Baked beans every day is to much, I like to think of them as a treat.

    Lots of us had this as kids- either for breakfast or as a quick meal, at other times. It probably seems a bit bland, if you first encounter it in adulthood- especially nowadays, when highly seasoned foods are more widely popular.

    It was a cheap, quick, meal for one when I was a kid.

    Slice of bread, small tin of beans. Protein, carbs, a few essential minerals and low fat, better than a Big Mac

    The British Empire was built on victuals such as this. I laugh in the face of croissants and muesli.

    Totally agree- full fat beans for me, though not Heinz. Life's too short for those. Branston beans every time.

    Sometimes I go for a spot of chipotle paste. Thank me later!

    French toast doesn't even exist in my universe. Eggy bread. Nothing French about that!
