In Australia, people
in the outback used to eat this for breakfast, where it may have been
difficult to find any food in the early morning. Obviously this dish
has once been imported by the British. Of course you can buy baked beans
in a tin and just heat them. This recipe allows you to make them from
scratch and they are delicious!
