    They can't wrap their minds around the concept of beans in a tomato sauce beautifully draped over some buttery toast.

    But to the average British person, it's a CLASSIC. And for good reason.

    For starters, it's such a simple, easy to make meal.

    There's literally only TWO ingredients: Beans and, you guessed it, toast.

    And it takes LESS THAN five minutes to make.

    It takes Jamie Oliver 30 minutes to cook his dinner, and he's a professional kitchen wizard.

    But hey, if you want to be a little fancy you can cook the beans in a pan.

    There's the variety of presentation.

    Fully covered, half on/half off, on the side etc.

    And if you're feeling extra cheeky you can add a little cheese.

    Look at the way this butter melts into the fluffy, but not too fluffy, toast.

    This is the sight that greets you at the gate's of Heaven.

    Seriously, what other meal can you eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner???

    The answer is none.

    Beans on toast is always there for you. Always.
