For my three British readers.

In honor of All Click, Silverback, and Spike, I had beans and toast for breakfast today:

The beans are leftovers from Famous Dave's and the toast is Ezekiel 4:9 Sesame Sprouted Grain Bread. There was no need for a sausage, as there was more than enough pork floating around in the beans.

Overall, is was inauthentic and half-assed, but mighty tasty and fillin'. I'd have it again.

Just to be pedantic, Chris, we call it beans ON toast.

I hope you stayed in for a suitable time afterwards - although I've never quite felt (or smelt) the effects associated with this meal.

I prefer poached eggs on toast now anyway but still tell my US friends to try your meal as the very idea is so alien to them.

I applaud your bravery. What's next......spotted dick ?

Two Christmases ago, my husband ordered an entire box of goodies from England. There was Bird's custard powder, Rum sauce, treacle cake in a can, toffees, and Spotted Dick, among other things.

My dad was so amused by just the name alone, he bought a set of them just to give to people he knew. That joke never got old.

I'm gonna have to try this dish. I'm guessing it's better than spotted dick, which sound like it should be accompanied by a side of penicillin.

Beans for breakfast? Goddamn that's right up my alley. Some of my rougher mornings could have been more tolerable with a dish like that.

What sort of beans and bread would make for the most-authentic recipe?

Now if it was cornbread, I could understand.

authentic recipe? It's gotta be Heinz Baked Beans. I've found them in the foreign food aisle in my Kroger in a blue tin. Any thinly sliced bread will do.

I love beans for breakfast but never have it now.

Also, to "yummo" this dish up, try some cheddar on top of the beans while they are hot and let it melt mmm and sometimes i butter the bread too...

Been a while since I visited this post so forgive the delay. Ok, Heinz Baked Beans for starters. That's a given.
As for the bread, well it just has to be the special extra thick 'toastie' bread made just for such meals. Slap on the butter and then pour on the beans and let the juices soak into the crispy toasted bread.
Eat, enjoy and prepare to let the air turn blue.
