    We all know how to make the simple version of beans on toast, but I want to know what your own individual way of making it is (everyone I've met does something slightly different).

    Me, I toast the bread, then poor beans onto the toast followed by slices of red leicester cheese. Pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes, add salad, coleslaw, pepper and a little HP bbq sauce and there you have it.

    The perfect beans on toast!

    Mmmm, I used to live off beans on toast. I like to drown them in Tabasco sauce and black pepper.

    Beans, tuna and cheese griddled on herbed ciabatta with a little green salad for presentation and a glass of chianti to wash it down with.

    He he, I like it. A little too upmarket for me perhaps, but its something to aspire to :)

    Never, ever microwave beans. It ruins them

    You have to cook proper on an oven, till the beans themselves just start to break down

    Yea, I've heard it all before, but unfortunately I'm really lazy. Cooking on an oven = more time + more washing up. I know how it should be made though, also putting beans on the bread then cooking them in the microwave makes the toast a bit soggy, but its a price I'm willing to pay.

    With or over?

    I'm imagining some sort of Flash Gordon-esque rumble with Timothy Dalton over a gigantic patterned hotplate.

    *4 edits that took. I'm shit at posting.

    Add a dollop of HP sauce and lashings of Tabasco, along with salt & pepper to your taste, to the beans, before pouring over the cheese on toast that has been grilling in the oven for the last 5 minutes.

    I really must eat beans on toast more often. It's a hugely underrated meal :)

    house share

    breville went missing, everyone saying they didn`t have it etc etc

    eventually kicked some gumps door in after weeks of shit going missing and me suspecting him of nicking said breville, low and behold there is the fuckin breville (filthy too)

    what started out with me shouting at him to clean it ended up with me throwin it at him, then it all kicked off. In the kitchen

    he moved out a couple of days later

    the cunt

    I assume he refused to clean it then, the dirty bast. You should have swung the breville at his head whilst still holding it instead of throwing it. That would have taught him a lesson.

    From now on I will add a little tabasco sauce and salt to the meal then. Will certainly cook in a sauce pan when I can be bothered and might even try the 'cheese under beans' approach. Maybe an oxo cube or tuna aswell.

    Thanks guys :)

    Mix salad cream and HP with the beans, it makes them taste a lot better.

    Red leicester on un-toasted wholemeal bread. Then put it under the grill until the cheese is just about browning, then add piping hot beans on top and enjoy. Simple, Quick and delicious.

    Red Leicester is certainly the only cheese for beans on toast. Not too sure about the salad cream idea though, could work I suppose, but its a long shot.

    I`ll try the slad cream, its one of the most underrated condiments on the planet

    Gotta be Chedder I`m afraid, *under* the beans.

    I hope your Breville kills you then Bauhaus, because you are just wrong, wrong, wrong on your choice of cheese.

    Brevilles long gone now.

    Lets face, they are a novelty item

    Few weeks after you get one, you choke on some brevilled monstrosity then it goes into a cupboard never to be used (or cleaned) again.

    2 Slices of bread.
    1 tin of beans.
    1 teaspoon of curry powder.
    Butter
    Extra mature cheddar slices.
    Pepper.

    Cook the beans in a pot, add the curry powder, stir, toast the bread until golden brown, put butter on toast, pour beans over toast, place slices of cheese on beans, grill all until sizzling, add pepper.

    Eat and make homer simpson --gghhallalhhrrr noise.

    These aren't just normal beans on toast, these beans were planted by Jack and handpicked by Mother Teresa, smoothered in chopped, pureed tomato's picked from the bowels of Mars, and lovingly draped over fresh white bread baked in Uzbekistan.

    This isn't just food, this is M&S food.
