Baked Beans are an Anglo-Saxon speciality, often found in Irish breakfasts. They are white beans (or flageolets) cooked in a simmered tomato sauce. Often sold in cans, they are very popular with the Irish!
Baked Beans are most often eaten at the irish breakfast, with toasted bread, or farl soda (great for sauces!).
These beans are very popular in Ireland: tasty, they are cheap (less than a euro a tin), and allow you to go all morning without feeling hungry.
They go perfectly with eggs, sausages or bacon, and are cooked in water and then in the oven in a tomato sauce flavoured with herbs.
In Ireland, Baked Beans are mainly marketed by Heinz under the name ‘Baked Beanz’. Slightly sweetened by tomatoes, they are often unanimously acclaimed!
