|Ingredients generally used
Baked beans is a dish made of beans, sometimes baked but, despite the name, usually stewed, in a sauce.
Most commercially canned baked beans are made from haricot beans, also known as navy beans (a variety of Phaseolus vulgaris) in a sauce.
In Ireland and the United Kingdom, a tomato sauce is most commonly used, and they are commonly eaten on toast or as part of a full English, Scottish, or Irish Breakfast.
