English beans on toast?

DonShirer | Jun 29, 200612:03 AM     263

I like to read British mysteries. Strangely, the food most often mentioned
in this genre is "beans on toast", evidently an everyday item used for
breakfast lunch or dinner (at least according to the authors).

Being a lover of (Boston type) baked beans, I tried some on wheat toast.
Didn't seem to be different enough to make it worthwhile.

Am I missing something? Did I use the right kind of beans or bread?
Could some chowhound Brits fill in the blanks here?
