Bacon and Beans on Toast


This is definitely the perfect hangover breakfast (or maybe dinner depending on when you wake up and decide to eat). When I was a kid, my mom used to make this for us (note: we were not hungover at that time).  If I recall her method correctly, the bacon was the top layer ... and only one side was cooked in a pan.  The uncooked side was faced up and finished cooking under the broiler.

But I like bacon to be really crisp and the minute or so it takes to brown the cheese while under the broiler is not enough to get the bacon the way I like.  So I fully cook the bacon before assembling.

Toast the bread.  Top with warmed baked beans.  Add a slice or some pieces of bacon, then the cheese.  Bake in oven at 350 degrees F for about 5-8 minutes to get all of the ingredients hot. Then pop the broiler on high.  Broil until cheese is brown and bubbly.
