    Why would beans go on the top? That's like having pizza with the tomatoes on the top. :D

    Jacket potato, cheese and beans is so last season!

    Now the summer is here it's all about Sweet potato, pine nuts, rocket and goats cheese topped with olive oil.

    As long as the goats cheese goes on top.

    Goats cheese, then pine nuts. The rocket dressed in the oil on the side.

    That's the point! Beans are put to the back of the store cupboard for the summer season.

    I had a cheese and baked bean pasty recently from a little independent bakers, it didn't really work. Gregg's are safe.

    Just seems like such a good idea.

    Crushed :(

    Actually I ordered this from my works canteen and they did cheese then beans. I had a chuckle to myself at their foolishness before discovering that it does, in fact, work better than beans then cheese.

    Reigniting this old argument, I asked this question of an oncology nurse just this very day. She said cheese on beans without even thinking about it. When explaining the alternative, she said it was wrong, had not considered it and never would.

    Sea Star this is not a tagline

    I mix cheese with the beans, then put cheese on the potato with beans/ cheese on top, then more cheese on top. I don't understand why anyone does it any differently. Best of all worlds!

    Mrs Miggins There's been a slight cheese accident

    Does she perhaps know of some cancerous risk of doing it any other way? Maybe we should take note :hmm:

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    She is correct.

    Ignore anything that Badgers has to say on the matter.

    I like beans, then cheese, cheese, cheese and more cheese on the side as a back up.

    You can do one step further as well.
    Scoop out the potato flesh and mash with cheese, replace in the skin and add all of the above :thumbs:

    Scoop out the potato. Mash it with parmesan, some brown anchovies and capers, put it back into the skin. More parmesan on the top, grill until golden. Finish with a little caviar or salmon roe. Eat and thoroughly enjoy the richness and decadence of a beanless potato. Best served with a glass or two of champagne.
