    cheese under and over is best. Money is not a garnish though, you fool.

    In case we didn't know how big the baked beans were? :D

    eta: actually, now I think about it, I got it wrong, so they must be BIG baked beans. Good job you added it :cool:

    If it's not cheese & coleslaw then I could not care less what goes on top/bottom of such a foul food combination.

    Nonsense thread. We've already established mayonnaise and chilli sauce are required toppings.

    There is clearly only one right way, which is immediately obvious to all but the most deviant, morally reprehensible ne'er-do-wells.

    If you need to ask which it is, you are one of the deviant minority and deserve no place in a civilised society. You should move to France, where you'll fit in perfectly.

    Cheese under beans. The cheese melts and mixes a bit in with the potato then. The potato should have been softened first with a generous blob of butter first, worked in with a fork.

    The correct thing to do is to scoop out the middle and mix it with a good creamy, blue cheese. Put this back into the potato and grill slightly to get an nice crispness going. Then take the beans and put the carefully back into the cupboard. Beans are for mixing with chilli and putting on toast. They should never be served on a good potato.

    This. At my favourite spud van they put the cheese on first and this prevents it from blowing away in a sudden breeze. It also allows the cheese to infuse with the surface of the potato and create a protective buffer against the bean juice which might otherwise lead to excessive sogginess.

    Would you put the tomato sauce on top of the cheese on a pizza? No! So why would you put beans in a TOMATO sauce on top of cheese?
