Heinz Baked Beans
Disadvantages: They give you wind!
Mmmm...the original (I think) and best. What would Friday tea time be without a plate of beans on toast and Crackerjack?
Heinz Baked Beans have been on the shelves since 1901, when they were only available from Fortnum and Masons. They cost the equivalent of £1.50 in todays money! Thankfully for students everywhere, they have gone down in price quite a lot since then. Nowadays they are exported to over 60 countries and 1.5 million cans are made every day!
Heinz Baked Beans are haricot beans in a tomato-based sauce. They are pre-cooked, so only need heating through either in a saucepan over a low heat or in the microwave.
Because of the tomato sauce, baked beans go fabulously with a range f dishes including shepherds pie, meat pies, fish fingers and fried breakfasts. Propabably the most popular way of serving them is as Beans On Toast.
The best beans on toast (in my opinion) comes from toasting good quality read and spreading with butter. Heat the beans in a saucepan and add a dash of Worcester Sauce and a couple of drops of Tabasco. Grate some cheese over the toast and pour the beans over. You'll have melted cheese with every mouthful - scrummy!
Baked beans come most commonly in a 415g can costing about 50p, but Heinz now also do a range of other sizes - 150g, 200g and 800g. They also do a range of other beans including reduced salt and sugar beans, organic beans, Weightwatchers beans, jalfrezi beans, mexican beans and chili beans. You can get beans with miniature sausages in too.
Baked beans are a very healthy food, containing plenty of protein and fibre and not much fat. The sugar content is faily high, so if you are watching our weight you may want to try reduced sugar beans.
