Family favorite: "Stuff you put over toast"

We had a bbq last weekend and wound up with some leftover baked beans. I am not a big fan of baked beans but love them when I make Stuff You Put Over Toast.

This recipe is so easy, simple and can be eaten over toast or without toast. But then you would just have stuff. :)

{I apologize in advance for no pictures.}

Stuff You Put Over Toast

  • 1 large can of baked beans or pork and beans
  • 1 lb. of ground beef
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • Bug handful of baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1-2 TBSP sugar
  • Salt and pepper
1. In a large pan, add diced onion and green pepper. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Drain fat.

2. Add in everything else and continue to leave on heat until it is warm throughout.

2. Toast bread.

3. Served over toast.

I like to get me bread extra crispy so it does not become all soggy immediately. But I also hear my brother in law likes his to be soggy, so whatever your preference is will work.

The great thing about this recipe is it's versatility! Don't have enough baked beans? I have used a small can and it is been fine. Only have 1/2 pound of ground beef? Throw it in and it will still be perfect. I have subsituted so many things in this recipe and it still taste the same way.

Let me know if you try it!

This sounds very similar to what we call hamburger beans. Use pork 'n beans and add ketchup and brown sugar (baked beans) though. Yummy!

Ashley that is how I make my beans too, except we put just a tad bit of mustard in there too! This sounds really good. I think I might have to make it...I will let you know.
