I need to know so I can convince my sons that it is the most wonderful thing man has ever invented.
Or is it just the memories of sitting on the aft bits eating one at 7am in the morning looking at the wake.

One slice of bread (Thick Slice) lighty toasted. Cover with baked beans - and a slice of ham on top of the beans - cover with grated cheddar and bake it or grill it.(Pint) Mind you can add tomato - onions - chili whatever you fancy. Enjoy(Eat)(Eat)(Pint)

I made them for my kids by buttering 2 slices of bread put beans ham and grated cheese between the bread, buttered side out, then put it in a hot, dry frying pan for a couple of minutes each side. Kids loved 'em

Slice of bread, cover with a slice of corned beef, cover with baked beans, add grated cheese and bake in oven for 15-20 minutes on 180.

Just a tip on this one coz the hallowed cheese beano has many variations depending on what you've got most of in the dry stores / fridges and of course personal prefrence.

If you have any beans left over that have already been heated and put in the fridge to cool use them because the sauce thickens and the whole beano holds together that much better.

As the cheesy beano and all other variations of cheese on toast are not exclusive to any one Company; Why isn't this on 'The Galley'?
I had a job finding it again to put in my two pennyworth.

Cheese on toast and it's numerous variations are found not only on ships but in student digs, squats and such - Anywhere that there are odd scraps to be used up.
My own favourite does not involve beans but is what I call a Welsh Crock-Monsiuer.

Take some sliced ham, cut it into thin strips,
Grate some cheese, course grated preferred.
Mix the Cheese and Ham together with any available relish, Worcester sauce is best.
Stack on thick lightly toasted, lightly buttered bread.
Grill until the cheese starts to bubble.
Serve immediately.

Alternative includes thinly sliced tomato, or anything else that need using up.

If eggs are available top off with a fried egg.

Of course not - You just lay the toaster on its side.

My version is a cross between a Welsh rarebit and a Crock Monsieur -
Hence the name...

As i remember it: Shell used Spam, other companies it was ham or Corned Beef. When i made them it was toast with a slice of Spam/Ham layer of beans grated cheese on top and piped potato around the edge, then under the grill.

My wife has just purchased a brand new, state of the art micro/crispy grill cooker. One of the aforementioned will be the first to disgrace its interior. Great memories of everything we used to scoff and now are told are bad for us!

Thanks guys.

B*******t!

After seeing what constitutes a C-B I don't think I'm allowed any of that any more.
I wonder if you can make COMPLAN C-Bs ?

Delicious with brown sauce, the "sausage" filling was, on occasion, a little suspect

Cheesie-hammie-eggie, in the RN was toast, Slice of ham, fried egg, topped off with cheese. The one dish most RN cabbage mechanics were unable to cock up.

I'm not allowed cheese now. Off to corner to cry now as I want one now, Mommy

I'm sure the egg is the last adition to the dish; it goes on top of the ham and cheese. Trust a non "cabbage machanic" to get it wrong!

All the ones I had at sea and have made since swallowing the pick have been toast with beans then grated cheddar under a hot grill till the cheese browns with a rasher of well grilled streaky bacon over the top. Well enhanced by some Houses of Parliament sauce tastefully drizzled over the top. Had one today, Great!

I seem to remember that a Cheese Beano had bacon, and not ham on it. An egg was a bonus. A great belly filler between meals, or in the evening. As said before, pre cooked beans and eaten on the poop in a quiet moment were the best ways to eat it.

I fondly remember kromeskies (spelling?), a BP standard in the 60s. Also dahl curry and rice with crispy fried onion rings on top.

A variation we had for late supper on cargo ferries was lightly toasted bread, onto which a thick mix of grated cheese, small dash of mayo, finely diced onion (all mixed into a paste) was spread.
These were made in advance.
A splash of Worcester sause on the top and then pop under the grill.
We sailed at midnight and they made a brilliant supper.

May I also suggest a banana squashed on to the toasted bread then grated cheese on top and grilled.

I'll post a recipe later mate. Dahl peas available from most supermarkets now. At sea we normally used yellow split peas.

I thought from the start (#1) that impressing the kids would be a tall order. I treasure the very few culinary compliments I have received and still bore people with them.
