Beans and Things

When I was at college it was not unusual for me to need a quick meal between coming home from lectures and zooming out again to socialise. One of my stand-by meals was baked beans. The standard way of serving baked beans is simply to heat them in a pan and pour them over a piece of toast. But rarely did I do them this way. Usually I added another ingredient – Imagination! I still do this today when I'm feeling lazy.

Among Ingredients that you can add to spice up your Baked Beans are:-

Pickled onions;
Spring onions;
Pickled gherkins;
Mixed herbs;
Chopped ham;
Chopped Spam or tinned ham and pork;
Small pieces of cooked chicken;
Chopped tomato;
Cherry tomato;
Tinned Tomatoes;
Red pepper;
Green pepper;
Yellow pepper;

And you could always top the mixture with a poached egg!


Open the tin of beans and pour into a saucepan.
Add the other chosen ingredients;
Heat, stirring as necessary;
Serve on toast or with French bread and butter.

Can’t get easier than that!

  1. Hey, that looks really good. And coincidentally, I have no idea what I'm going to do for dinner tonight. Thanks for the tip.
