to think that having baked beans and salad on the same plate is an abomination?

I'm not, don't know why I'm asking really.

YANBU - and I don't know why you are asking - seems clear as day to me.

Perfectly fine as long as you don't get bean juice on the salad.

Eg many jacket potatoes come with a bit of salad and the filling could be beans.

You're right to ponder these things!

YANBU at all, that's just wrong!

Christ no!! lettuce touching hot beans sauce? boak!!

Quite often when you have a jacket potato with beans it will have a salad garnish on the side. That's ok I think.

YANBU! Baked beans don't belong on a baked potato (at least not without butter and a mountain of cheese)

Unfortunately this is the only meal my favourite local cafe do that is syn free on slimming world sad

Jacket potato with baked beans, cheese and a bit of salad is delicious, and totally normal.
Cold baked beans and salad however is odd, no matter what DH and his family think!

I love beans and salad. Delicious. Don't know what's wrong with the rest of you! grin

YANBU. I often find that if I order a jacket potato with cheese and beans, it comes with a salad 'garnish'. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The salad gets warm and soggy and tends to disintegrate so you can't even separate it out. So you then tuck into your spud only to find green slimy bits interspersed with your beans.

Also, my post refers to baked beans not belonging on the same plate as salad, as well as with a baked potato! Soggy warm salad is a no no

Foxy, its the jacket potato with beans on top and salad on the side scenario that I am thinking of! It is wrong-tastically wrong.

I adore cold baked beans. First had them served to me as part of a salad plate. Love at first bite. Mind you, my dad puts ketchup on lettuce so maybe we're just odd smile

Foxsticks Tue 18-Mar-14 19:56:45

Noooo - jacket, beans and salad is right! Especially with cheese, and even more so if there is cress on the salad. I love a cafe spud with cress garnish grin

JeanSeberg Tue 18-Mar-14 19:56:56

Mmmm cold baked bean tarts...

Foxsticks Tue 18-Mar-14 19:58:12

Hang on. Baked bean tart? What's that? And does it come with salad?

motherinferior Tue 18-Mar-14 20:00:31

Baked beans are usually wrong. They are bearable with bacon and/or sausages but that's it.

Don't start me on just how much they sully the sacred Friday night special of egg and chips....

usualsuspectt Tue 18-Mar-14 20:01:43

It's fine.

A jacket potato ,no matter what the filling needs a salad garnish. I work in a cafe so I know grin

JeanSeberg Tue 18-Mar-14 20:01:56

It's the little tart cases filled with cold beans. Not usually served with salad but your choice.

usualsuspectt Tue 18-Mar-14 20:03:23

Now come on, you can't eat egg and chips without baked beans.

And at least 2 slices of bread and butter to mop up the plate.

Mintyy Tue 18-Mar-14 20:05:17

Baked beans are acceptable in a tiny number of scenarios.

They absolutely definitely should never go near egg and chips. Egg and chips is a 2 ingredient menu of perfection (although one may require a little dab of brown sauce on the side).

motherinferior Tue 18-Mar-14 20:05:25

Nooooo! Egg and chips is one of life's great meals. Beans instantly ruin it.

Foxsticks Tue 18-Mar-14 20:07:06

It's the little tart cases filled with cold beans. Not usually served with salad but your choice.

With cheese, cream, egg etc to make it quichey or literally a can of beans poured into a pastry case?

Slubberdegullion Tue 18-Mar-14 20:07:53

You are actually being quite unreasonable to even mention beans and salad in the same sentence Mintyy, for now I have a moderate splayed toe. Half a minute ago I was relaxing comfortably on the sofa but now I have the splayed toe. That's your fault that is.
