Baked beans on toast

A great brunch idea...not too heavy, not too light..just right!

This recipe is actually for my mami-in-law. She wanted to come over when I make this dish..but something or the other keeps coming up and she keeps missing it. So this ones just for her.

My mom used to make this dish for us when we were kids and used to get bored with traditional home food..which happened quite often! But when my brother got married and my sister in law made her kind of baked beans on toast...they were just wayyyy this is her recipe for all of u.

Serves: 5 - 6 people
Level: Easy

2 cans of baked beans (i personally prefer the SIL brand)
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 tsp ginger, finely chopped
2 tsp garlic, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
Sliced bread
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp butter

Step 1 - Take a pan and heat some oil in it. When warm, add in the ginger, garlic and chillies. Saute for a min. Add in the onions and saute till transparent.

Step 2 - Pour in the 2 cans of baked beans (Directly from can to pot. Dont drain or wash them). Mix well lightly together. You dont want mashed baked beans on toast.

Top it over some toasted bread, cover with your choice of topping... Serve immediately.

You can make the beans in advance and keep it refrigerated till use. Just heat it in the microwave before using it.

My favorite toppings include - some chopped onion and little bit of butter
You could top it with grated cheese...chillies ....chaat masala...chilly sauce...coriander...anything.

Hope you enjoy making this super easy dish.


  1. Chilli powder topping was real nice.. Next time make some hot sauce .. would love to try that as well...
