Baked beans, baked beans, they're the beans for me!
A few years ago two chefs, that worked for Heinz, reckoned there is an exact science in order to enjoy baked beans on toast at their best. According to them to get the perfect dish you need to follow this method:
- Use only white
bread, cut to a thickness of 1.56cm (just over half an inch).
- Toast it in
an oven grill and never in a toaster.
- Always butter
the toast - never use margarine.
- The butter must
be unsalted butter and chilled to exactly 16.5ºC.
- The beans themselves
should be cooked at 63.5ºC.
- Spooned over the toast and not poured over.
