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.

And it takes LESS THAN five minutes to make.

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