My favourite foodie server on Steemit @steemkitchen is having a weekly contest where you can win 10 STEEM! Cowabunga dudes! This week's theme is CHEAP AND CHEERFUL, and they have asked us to make something amazing with ingredients that are in our store cupboards.

I chose to make my favourite, Posh Beans on Toast. The name stems back to when @morkrock and I had a restaurant, back in 2013, and our British friend, Dave, named my Beans on Toast, POSH. I love this dish, and make some variation of it most weeks. Some weeks I just have a bowl of beans with a fried egg, and others I'll go the full monty with toast too.

So without further ado, here is my recipe for Posh Beans on Toast, made completely with items out of my kitchen cupboard. Not one item was bought specifically for this dish!

  • one white onion, sliced in half circles
  • 400g can of baked beans
  • 400g can of cannelini beans
  • 4 eggs
  • chopped bacon (this is an extra, I had leftover from the weekend)
  • a handful of cherry tomatoes
  • half a cup of tomato puree
  • one beef or veg stock cube
  • fresh basil
  • one piece of toast per person

Heat up a little olive oil in a pan, and fry the onions until translucent. Once cooked thoroughly, add the baked beans in their tomato sauce, and the drained cannelini beans. Add the basil, salt and pepper to taste, the tomato paste and the stock, along with half a cup of water.

Turn the heat down to a simmer, and cook until the liquid has thickened. Once it is almost ready, add the bacon and the cherry tomatoes. Cook for a further minute, and take off the heat.

Now, fry each person an egg, and toast their bread. It's important to toast the bread, as it will turn to mush if you don't.

Plate with the toast as the bottom layer, then the beans, and top with a delicious fried egg.

Garnish with a few torn basil leaves, and VOILA.

This dish costs approximately R60 ($5) in total to make, but if you have a well stocked pantry cupboard, you could easily adjust it to be made from some surplus ingredients you have.

Oh this is something I could definitely make! Would be fabulous for a brunch on a cool autumn Sunday morning.

Only ingredient I'm short on in the pantry and kitchen is the cherry tomatoes; but my favorite farmer's roadside stand is still open and just a quick jaunt up the road.

Good luck with your entry!!


thanks Dawne! You can even omit the tomatoes, the puree is pretty strong, you can just add a little more

nom to the nom, I like the plate a lot
and the plating lol


ahhh thanks battlebutt! i love the plate too, i've broken it and fixed it twice!

I am a big Fan of Baked beans on Toast, but I am picky with my beans I only buy Heinz or Bachelors which Luckily one of the supermarket here has them, but done this way with extras sounds so good I may try it next time I am making beans on toast

Oh YUMMY! I adore beans on toast, though nowadays I have it sans toast, but it's still yummy. And I'm now happily in the land that originated beans on toast, good ole' England so this is even more exciting for me.

The addition of the egg is genius as I love egg on anything! And the final wonderful moment...That transferware plate. I adore transferware.

Good luck in the contest.
