Collection of Best Baked Bean Recipes

This week, it’s all about our “best” bean recipes. Here on  Turnips 2 Tangerines we love our baked beans. We have over 16 recipes that showcase the versatile legume. Dried beans, canned beans and beans made with bacon, hamburger and sausage. Recipes that turn beans into a casserole, that can be served as the main meal. You can never have to many bean recipes, I was once told and don’t ever argue with your mother-in-law, I was once told also. Yes, my mother-in-law was always right and you can never have enough beans recipes…

A Summertime Favorite

Beans are considered, at least in my house, a summertime staple. A must-have at picnic’s, grill out parties and everything in between. My husband comes from a family that served beans at all meals, so I guess that’s where I get my love for beans from. God knows, we never had beans when I was growing up and if we did, they most certainly were of the canned variety. When we did have beans, Aggie would have no doubt made the ever popular “bean hash.”

Bean Hash

Aggie made bean hash often and I actually liked her bean hash. She made bean hash in her big old cast-iron skillet. Aggie would brown hamburger and then add tomato soup and Van Camp’s Pork ‘n Beans. Then she would simmer the bean hash on the stove top and supper was served. Van Camp’s beans were the only beans she used. Their slogan on the website says that they have been making “delicious beans for more than 140 years.” That’s a long time to be making beans and a whole lot of bean hash too.

By Any Other Name

Bean hash in my house goes by many different names. Bean hash, bean crash, bean smash, bean bake dish, a$$-hole casserole and now coming in first place, is an expression my grand daughter recently came up with, “Stinky butt, toot toot.” Whatever name you chose to call this bean dish, one thing is for certain, it’s still as easy and economical to make as it was when Aggie made it for dinner, way back when.
