to save more time would it be possible to heat the beans in a microwave using a suitable container or would this impair their flavour?

Runny beans are disgusting!
If you want a great beans on toast you need to simmer the beans for at least twenty minutes until the sauce thickens. I sometimes add marmite to the toast or chilli to the beans.

Try frying some streaky bacon put to one side, put beans in frying pan with a small amount of the fat left in the pan, break the bacon into small pieces and add back to the beans. you can put this on your toast dry or buttered, or even with bread and butter

Thought I'd speed the cooking process up a bit, but the beans
made a right mess of the toaster.

Spice it up a bit, take half a can of beans - add 4 large spoons sweet chilli sauce and mix in - with the other half of beans put in another pot and add 3 table spoons of Tabasco sauce - still top the sweet and spicy chilli beans with full flavour cheese

I don't know how this recipe is not on page 1 of viewers comments - it deserves all 5 star ratings. It's so nutritious, low in fat (if you don't use butter) and it looks good too. I am definitely going to serve this at my next dinner party - being a busy working mum it will save me lots of time in the preparation and I am sure it will go down a storm with my guests. Any suggestions what to serve as afters? Crushed biscuits in ice cream maybe!!!!

add a nob of butter to the beans when heating.. then you don't need to butter the toast if your short of time

Not sure which brand of baked beans works best OR type of bread to toast? Recipe is very vague;) I did find that HP beans mixed with HP brown sauce were a nice spicy combination on toasted granary bread!

Slice some mushrooms and tomatoes in with the beans to warm through and add some ground pepper. Grated cheese on top of the lot and there's a real meal.
