Beans on Toast

This is so simple I could cry!!!!  I can't believe I've lived without this all this time,  just because I've always hated canned baked beans.

Ingredients: 
  • Buttered toast (thick white bread for the school holidays!!)
  • Can of Butter Beans - drained and rinsed
  • butter
  • garlic - crushed (I resorted to garlic powder and it was fine)
Method:
  • In small saucepan combine beans, knob of butter and garlic.  
  • On medium heat, stir gently until heated through
  • Serve on toast
Verdict:
Delish!!  Ms C and Mr JR ate it down very quickly and then I had to make another batch for Mr Frillypants and me.  So very yummy....  and so surprising as I DON'T LIKE BEANS!!!!!  Fabulous for lunch or a light dinner.

Tweeks:

Last night I didn't have any Butter Beans,  so I used Borlotti Beans.  I also decided to add leek,  finely sliced diagonally and sauteed with the butter and garlic.  Then stirred the beans through.  Yummo!!!
