When I was younger, we use to camp out on the river and fish, this was pretty much a staple when going there.

1 lb bacon
3 cans pork and beans

Fry up bacon (leave all the grease in)
Dump in the 3 cans beans and heat....
I add onion to mine.

Quick and easy and good.

Thanks for that, reminds of camping and fishing with my Dad and Grandad years ago. Here's a similar recipe that's great for camping, almost as easy as yours, from French chef Jacques Pepin believe it or not. When I make it I usually double his recipe and substitute one can of tomatoes for two fresh ones, and dried herbs (herbes de Provence, Italian seasoning, whatever). You basically just precook the sausage in oil (if raw like Italian sausage) and then add the onions, or cook the sausage and onions together if the sausage is already cooked (hot dogs, kielbasa, etc.), then the add the garlic for the last minute, then add beans and tomatoes and seasoning, mix it up, let it simmer. It's enough for four hungry people.


Olive oil
6 sausages, roughly sliced
2 onions, roughly chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed and roughly chopped
2 cans of white beans (any kind, big or small)
2 fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped or 1 can diced tomatos
2 tbsp mixed dried herbs (whatever you like)
salt and pepper
hot sauce
