Baked beans is a dish made of beans, sometimes baked but, despite the name, usually stewed, in a sauce.[2]

Most commercially canned baked beans are made from haricot beans, also known as navy beans (a variety of Phaseolus vulgaris) in a sauce.

Varieties[change | change source]

Beans on Toast, with grated cheddar cheese and bacon.

In Ireland and the United Kingdom, a tomato sauce is most commonly used, and they are commonly eaten on toasted white bread or as part of a full English, Scottish, or Irish Breakfast. Some Americans have been known to dislike the dish.[3]
