Pork and Pork Beans Casserole


 When I was a kid, I could eat an entire can of pork and beans as a meal. I loved beans on buttered toast, beans warm, hot or even cold.  I decided to make some fancier beans by doubling the pork in this dish.  There is bacon as well as ground pork so these are even porkier!  I made some cornbread to go with this meal and a salad and we called it lunch.    This is a great dish for a bbq or even for breakfast.  Yes... I am definitely eating this for breakfast tomorrow over some hot buttered toast. YUM! 

5-6 slices bacon
1lb lean ground pork
4 (16oz) cans of Pork and Beans
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili con carne powder
2 cloves garlic minced or grated
1 red onion diced
1 bell pepper diced
1-2 jalapeno or green chilies diced
salt an black pepper to taste
red chili powder (cayenne) to taste

Saute bacon until crispy.  Remove bacon from pan and discard all bacon drippings except for 2Tbs.  Saute ground pork, diced peppers and garlic and onions in remaining bacon drippings.  Season with salt, black pepper, cumin, chili con carne powder, red chili powder. Then add the canned beans and cook for 5-7 minutes.  Taste for seasoning.  Serve as a side, over butter toast or cornbread.     Enjoy.

  2. Never heard of beans on toast, but it sounds yummy! I love baked beans with bacon, adding ground pork is something new to me!
