Prairie Berries

Someone somewhere has dubbed this day “Bean Day”, so in honor of that, I thought I’d share with you a dish My Cowboy loves for breakfast. Actually, we like it any time, but My Cowboy eats this for breakfast with a slice of fresh-baked cornbread that I bake in my iron skillet. Keeps his belly full and warm while he’s outside doing what cowboys do.

Prairie Berries

Cook 1 cup of navy beans according to package directions and drain.

Cook 8 slices of bacon, and crumble. Reserve 2 Tbsps. of the grease to use later. In the remaining bacon grease, saute 1/2 cup chopped onion. 

Mix together the beans, bacon grease, crumbled bacon, and onion. Add 1 Tbsp. Worchestershire sauce, 1 clove garlic (minced), 1 small can chili sauce, 1/2 tsp. chili powder, and 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. (I sprinkle a bit more cheddar on top before baking it, too.)

Bake in a small greased casserole dish at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

  1. That sounds good. I’ll have to try it.

  2. Sounds like a good Farmer Breakfast but I think that it would be good for supper tonight. Nothing like a great cast iron pan to cook in.

  3. Sounds perfect for a cold winter day!

  4. Thanks for the recipe and it is cold here too. Try to keep warm!

  5. mm… sounds great.. I’ll have to copy this to try later… thanks!
