American’s hilarious response after trying beans on toast for the first time | UK | News

An American got a delightful jolt of flavour after trying out the classic British dish of beans on toast for the first time.

Moving online to share his thoughts on Reddit, he posted: « American Here. UK what the heck? I’ve only seen other people make fun of it so I tried it myself. This stuff was actually so frickin good. »

Alongside the post was a snap of the beans sat on a single piece of toast.

When one fellow Brit defended our food and shared in the joy of the recent food lover, they commented: « One of us! One of us! It’s only mocked by idiots that have never tried it. It’s the perfect blend of tasty, cheap and easy-to-do. »

They went on to suggest: « Even better with mature grated cheddar and black pepper on top, then drizzle Worcestershire sauce over. *Wooster-sheer. Glad you enjoyed it. Now try the rest of our food, as it’s largely the same deal. Unfounded bad reputation. »

Other people suggested adding toppings such as black pepper, poached eggs or even curry powder. When one user asked why beans and toast seemed so « weird » to Americans. One overseas user explained: « Usually it’s seen as very very bare bones. Not too much flavour. »

The comment read: « I mean, you gotta remember we basically eat dessert for breakfast with all of our pancakes, cereal waffles and stuff hahaha. And also it’s a texture thing normally. Mushy baked beans and juice turn the bread all soggy. (I’m on your side remember I love the stuff! But that’s what Americans generally view it as). »

The feedback was happily taken into account by the user who later posted an « Update from the American who tried the glorious beans on toast for the first time! I listened to all y’all’s feedback! » In the post, there was a picture showing two slices of beans on toast, one topped with a fried egg and garnish while the other had grated cheese on top.

The post read: « Left is egg on beans on cheese on toast! Right is cheese on beans on toast! Also mixed woosh-ter-sheer sauce and lots of pepper into the beans! The grated cheddar cheese melted a little weird because I don’t have a broiler or anything. »

However, a point of advice came from another responder saying: « You don’t have to melt the grated cheese, let the hot beans do the work, » to which they replied: « Oh okay! So I pretty much got it on this one? I also made sure to press down the edges of my toast so the whole thing got toasted lol everyone thought my last toast wasn’t toast because of the edges. »

People then told the American to try some classic British food like sausage and mash, fish fingers with chips and peas, and a sausage casserole in a big Yorkshire pudding.

The next day, the American shared a picture of beans on toast, saying: « I’m that American again! I’m loving this beans-on-toast thing! I’ll eat it every single day for the rest of the month to try out the different versions y’all tell me. »

They also said they put « bacon, hella pepper, and cheese mixed inside the beans. » Someone commented, laughing: « Americans realising beans on toast is actually really good after making fun of us for years over it is hilarious haha. »
