Where have you bean?
There are a few Brits who wouldn't agree with the following ~ mainly those who live here with pembantus
(maids).I find this sort of thing awful - dumbing down food to that level. I think it's so disconnecting. It disconnects families. It disconnects communities. Everything now is so fast - we all demand things instantly, from instant internet access to instant food. Things like this have far-reaching effects. When everybody has to have everything instantly, where is the family? Where is sitting down and talking to each other? Where is preparing food together - even washing up together?
And what is Skye Gyngell (great name) upset about?"Instant" baked beans on toast
, a frozen, fused sandwich that goes in the toaster,
(which) is to be tested by Heinz in New Zealand and if successful, launched in the UK.
I do agree with Skye. One of the great 'nostalgic' treats I have here is beans on toast
(look and salivate!!) and Our Kid can cook them too. He likes his breakfast
All you need to do is to take a half sized can of Ayam Brand Baked Beans, although, if you really insist, you can get Heinz for twice the price, open it and pour the beans into a saucepan. Heat them gently until near boiling. Of course, you could microwave them. At the same time, put a couple of slices of bread into your toaster. When done to your favoured shade of brown, remove, butter and place on a plate. Now pour on the heated beans.
Some folk like to add a sprinkle of grated cheese, but I'm quite happy with a dash of black pepper.
This is completed within five minutes. The notion of an 'instant' beans on toast is somewhat abhorrent to me, even if the beans are the upmarket Heinz variety. Where would the fun of cooking be, eh?
You might as well stick with that other standby stomach filler ......
After all, it takes just as long to peel open the top, to empty all four sachets onto the mesh of dried noodles, to add near boiling water and then wait for the dehydrated soya stuff to rehydrate and then for it all to cool down to tongue temperature.
