Bean Casserole

It’s a bit like a chili, minus the chili powder, but it’s not soupy. It’s meaty, bean-y and soooo flavourful. You are going to LOVE this easy recipe. Our family sure does.

It’s got a bit of a sweet and sour thing going on with the sweetness of the brown sugar and the tang of the vinegar.

And it has bacon! Everything is better with a little bacon added in.

Can You Freeze Bean Casserole?

Double or triple the recipe so you can freeze it! Once I clear out my basement, I’m buying a deep freeze. I want to get into freezer cooking. I think it will save me from my dinner rut of never knowing what to make. I can batch cook a bunch of recipes like this Bean Casserole and then I always have something for dinner.

What to Serve with Bean Casserole

It’s a meal on its own, but if you wanted to add a nice side salad you could. I wouldn’t recommend potatoes or rice with it because I think that would be too much starch. It’s already a heavy meal with all the beans.
