how to make a bean dish Wed, 02/1/06 6:35 PM (permalink)
i had a side order of beans with toast it's called beans on toast i'm a wacky englishman so that explains this crazy dish you could try it one day. you get some bread heat it put on a plate and heat up some beans and pour over the toast. for some variation you could melt some cheese on the toast and then pour the beans it is important to get it this way round as you may find out for yourself.

    The beans sound good but sorry, I do not do beans anyway any time.

      That sounds like a lunch dish an old aunt of ours used to make and it was good. Toast bread, put a layer of baked beans on each slice of toast, cover with a slice of cheese and atop that put slices of cooked bacon. Type of cheese and number of bacon slices up to the individual. These were truly tasty for quick lunches.

          I've mentioned elsewhere that baked beans (usually cold) on toast is one of my New England Yankee Mom's favorite breakfasts. Doesn't need any cheese, or butter, just beans on toast.

          A little criminal history. In the Louise Woodward "Nanny" trial here in Massachusetts a few years back, she testified that one day a week her employers would ask her to cook a dinner from her home in England. She stated that she'd heat up a can of beans and serve them beans on toast.

            Surprise sandwich:
            from the bottom:
            hot dog roll
            spread with mayo
            hot dog (pre-fried)
            baked beans
            crisp bacon
            cheese
            Bake at 350 degrees until piping hot. You could add onions, too, of you like. A friend taught me this, she made it for her kids and I still love it. Bon appetit!

              A British friend of mine served them thusly
              Fried bread instead of toast, topped with hot baked beans, with Colmans mustard and worcestershire saue stirred in.

                Hello All,
                I've always been a night owl, and like a after-midnight snack.
                Leftover beans in the frig would often stare me straight in the eye,
                daring me to do something with them. So like many of you, I made them
                into sandwiches.
                My favorite is navy beans, heavily sprinkled with pepper, on sandwich bread.
                I do the same with green beans. Please remember, my family cooked the green beans a
                long time, so this is not a crunchy green bean sandwich.
                I, also, like pork and beans on bread.
                But I like bean sandwiches with the beans warmed or microwaved, not cold.
                Take Care,
                Fieldthistle

                    well, I've eaten Beans on my entire life, but I can't imagine cheese on it.
                    Bacon, onion, yes.
                    This is a wonderful snack though.

                        One of my late father's favorite sandwiches was pinto beans on white bread with mayo and onions. I'm partial to bean sandwiches myself.. hold the onions.

                            Leftover beans. Put in food prosessor add what ever floats your boat {I like garlic} when done spread on crackers. Makes a great snack. Chow Jim

                                Please pick up the white courtesy phone and post your recipe again! Every time we go to parties at friends' houses they always say to me, "Bring Bushie's beans!"

                                  Actually thats a good idea Jim. I must try that with some good home cooked pintos. I usually cheat and use a can of Gebhart refied beans w/ jojopenas and add some...ugh oooo... velveta. Makes a pretty good dip. I will leave out the velveta for Jims idea. Just some garlic and, hmm, I wonder what else might be good? I use crackers allot but I might try some grilled rye toast for this.

                                  Where IS Bushie?

                                    Bushie is at the parade for the Pillsbury Bake-Off Queen of Austin. Just kidding, but I did email him to post his recipe because I don't want to take credit for it!

                                      Pretty neat that Bushie has met that lady!

                                      Someone said you can edit your post. I typoed jalapenos. How do you do that?

                                        Sorry, y'all, I didn't hear my name being called. Must have been in the can or something...

                                        Anyway, all this originally stemmed from a question on a thread many moons ago. I had made the comment to another poster that beans & cornbread was one of my favorite meals, as long as the beans were made "the right way". lleechef then asked me what "the right way" was. Here is how I replied:

                                        "The "right way" to me is to keep it simple. I cook pintos using only fresh-ground black pepper and a big piece of salt pork (or ham bone if we've recently had a ham), then salt to taste after they've cooked awhile. I cook them for many hours, first covered, then after a few hours I take the lid off. This allows the juice to thicken a little. I don't want them "sludgey", but I don't want the juice thin, either. I add enough liquid (usually just water, but chicken broth doesn't hurt) along the way to keep them from getting gloppy.

                                        The only concession I'll make is that sometimes I'll chop up some fresh (not pickled) jalapenos and cook those in there."


                                        Lisa took that and ran with it, dubbing them "Bushie's Beans" and making me a legend in Anchorage. The Zman really likes them thanks for your very kind words, Z), and I've been told some great bean stories from the Great White North.

                                        As you can see, it's really more of a "way of cooking" than it is a recipe. And, if Lisa will admit it, she has improved on my "recipe" by adding a few touches of her own. Being the awesome cook she is, it would naturally follow that she took them to the next level. In fact, I'm looking forward to the day I visit up there and can eat Bushie's Beans cooked by lleechef!

                                          Thanks Bushie! That is just the way they get cooked at my house. Hard to improve on a classic but I'm bettin llee could do it if anyone can.

                                            Dino's restaurant in Worcester Mass gives about 1/4 cup of a white bean dip along with other stuff on a relish tray within 60 seconds of you being seated. The white bean dip looks a lot like hummus but is whiter and has a very different taste. I have tried to duplicate it at home, but mine is not nearly as good.

                                            If you garden there are seeds that you can plant to come up with some very interesting meals. Johnny's Selected seeds in Albion Me, www.johnnyseeds.com and the Vermont Bean Seeed company come to mind. Because a lot of the seed from Johnney is organic and untreated you can cook with the seeds directly if you like. In my experience, dry beans are very easy to grow, but it takes a lot of time when you cosider how cheap dry beans are in the store. When I grow them, I grow kinds that you can not find in the store. On year I grew adzugi (sp?) from Japan for example. You don't find them at the supermarket.

                                              Actually, the only ingredient that I added was a small can of diced tomatoes, a little chopped onion, that's it. But I think he posted that in his original recipe. Cooked 'em just the way he said to. Divine. Can't improve on simplicity.

                                              When Mr. and Mrs. Bushie come to the Great White North, I'm gonna stick Bushie in the galley and make him cook them for me! On the boat!!!! I'll grill the ribs out on the deck!!
