David Beckham’s ‘favourite’ dinner featuring both baked beans and peas is very strange

David Beckham isn’t known for his culinary expertise, but last night’s dinner he proudly posted about is really quite odd.

So we’ve all heard of gammon, egg, and chips. But have you ever heard of that old classic combination – gammon, baked beans, peas, pineapple, chips, egg and coleslaw? It’s certainly a, er, mouthful.

We’re not sure how we feel about the bean-pea combination – surely just one or the other would suffice.

But then again, if you were worth of a reported £425million, then why not get both?

Without psychoanalysing for former Manchester United footballer, 48, too much, he revealed the dish is inspired by his mum – so it’s probably a bit of a homely comfort for the star. We’ve all got those.

The mummy’s boy posted the picture of his grub before tucking in, and tagged Sandra Beckham in the snap, admitting: ‘Not as good as yours mum, but not bad.’

David revealed this was his favourite dish previously when he posted about it for the first time last year, as per GB News. Yep, he really does like it.

Commenting on his staple meal back then, the footballer wrote: ‘Last night’s feast one of my favourites growing up. Thanks mum.’

The difference it seems between David’s recipe and his mum’s, is that Sandra made mushy peas, while his were whole. That’s why it’s not as good, David.

Cheffing is something that runs in the family, clearly, with David’s eldest child Brooklyn making his own cooking videos and getting rinsed more than his dishes for it.

The 24-year-old has been trolled many a times for his online foodie efforts and celebrity chef aspirations.

One particularly memorable moment came when he cooked a Sunday roast with a bit of beef that fans said was plated up ‘raw’.

Brooklyn’s ‘Michelin style’ meal began with him generously salting the beef before drenching it in two full blocks of butter, mixed with garlic, rosemary and thyme, and placing it in the oven.

‘Just like how I have it in England. The best Sunday roast!’ he enthused, after trying a bite of the finished product.

‘Might as well bite the cow while it’s grazing,’ commented one fan on the video of the pink beef, while another claimed: ‘A good vet could bring that back to life.’

Elsewhere in the world of celebrity food demonstrations, Katie Price’s spaghetti lesson was also quite something.

Meanwhile Molly-Mae proved her devotion to the Sunday roast with a massive – wait for it – actual Deliveroo – carvery. Eek.

It’s always bold to post your dinner on social media, but perhaps even more so for anyone with 86million followers like Becks…
