No. 14 — Smoked Barbecue

Sublime Breakfast Beans

Wrenching yourself from bed on a Sunday. Devising a zinger that might have won an argument in 1997. Checking the fridge to establish whether anything better has materialised since last time. These are all things one might ostensibly do in a 15 minute window. How about you try this instead?

These breakfast beans — which are low in sugar and salt, FYI — put tinned beans to shame, for a Full English that stands head and shoulders above the rest.
