In America, we have PB and J. In Ireland, they have Beans on toast. According to the Irish American mom, this affordable and tasty dish was a staple of her childhood. Some put cheese in between; others put a fried egg oozing over the top. Still some slide a little butter on the bottom of the toasted bread. No matter how you eat it, the simplicity and familiarity of Beans on Toast will continue to be an Irish favorite.
