30 Baked Beans Recipes for Preppers

Beans
are
a
prepper’s
friend

whether
dried
or
canned,
and
form
one
of
the
basics
of
food
stockpiles.
Baked
beans
are
known
to
be
rich
in
protein
and
fiber,
help
with
gut
health
and
can
have
a
beneficial
effect
on
cholesterol
levels.

We
all
use
baked
beans,
but
not
everyone
is
aware
that
the
botanical
name
for
the
beans
used
is

Phaseolus
vulgaris
,
also
known
as
common
or
navy
beans.
They
became
known
as
navy
beans
because
they
were
a
staple
in
the
US
Navy
stores
during
the
1900’s.

When
buying
commercially
prepared
baked
beans,
check
the
labels
carefully
as
you
want
to
avoid
ones
that
are
high
in
sodium
and
added
sugar.
Many
of
the
recipes
collated
below
add
extra
sugar,
so
you
don’t
want
to
overload
on
salt
and
sugar
with
a
product
already
high
in
these.

Canned
Versus
Dried
Beans

Often
a
person
doesn’t
even
have
the
time,
or
sufficient
power
to
cook
items
for
long
periods
when
hurricanes,
earthquakes,
or
tornadoes
hit.
This
is
why
the
list
below
has
some
really
easy
cooking
recipes
that
don’t
take
long
at
all.

For
those
who
believe
storing
dried
beans
is
best,
then
some
recipes
with
a
fairly
long
cooking
time
have
been
added.

If
you
have
dried
beans
stockpiled,
perhaps
cook
up
a
big
batch
and
can
them,
so
you
have
beans
ready
to
use
when
the
power
is
out
and
you
need
to
cook
quickly
over
a
gas
flame
or
a
small
wood
fire.

Dried
beans
will
last
a
long
time
but
after
5
years
much
of
the
nutritional
value
within
the
bean
will
have
depleted.
Canned
beans
last
three
to
five
years,
and
although
the
expiry
date
may
have
passed
they
will
be
good
to
eat.
Storage
in
a
cool
dry
place
helps
with
both
dried
and
canned
beans.

1.
Hawaiian
Baked
Beans

This
is
as
easy
as
opening
two
cans,
stirring
in
mustard
and
a
little
sugar.
The
sweet
tang
of
the
pineapple,
adds
to
the
canned
beans
that
are
enhanced
with
the
sugar
and
mustard.

The
recipe
suggests
baking
in
the
oven
for
an
hour.
See
how
you
go,
but
I
would
say
this
would
be
done
within
35
to
40
minutes

enough
time
for
the
sugars
in
the
pineapple
to
caramelize
and
combine
with
the
flavor
of
the
beans.

2.
Hawaiian
Meatball
Baked
Bean
Casserole

This
recipe
can
be
cooked
in
a
Dutch
oven
over
a
campfire,
or
in
your
kitchen.
Using
pork
for
the
meatballs
gives
a
rich
succulent
taste,
while
the
canned
baked
beans,
tomato
passata

also
known
as
tomato
puree,
the
crushed
pineapple,
peppers
and
herbs,
add
a
satisfying
deep
flavor.

Parmesan
sprinkled
on
top
makes
this
easy
recipe
something
special
that
can
be
served
with
rice,
crusty
homemade
bread,
quinoa
or
couscous.

3.
Beef
Baked
Beans
Cottage
Pie

A
variation
on
the
usual
cottage
pie,
this
one
includes
baked
beans
for
extra
flavor.
Although
there
seem
to
be
a
lot
of
ingredients
you
can
substitute
some

for
example
carrots
can
be
substituted
with
butternut
or
sweet
potato,
the
mushrooms
with
zucchini
or
eggplant.

Make
use
of
what
you
have
in
your
prepper
garden
or
stockpile,
as
long
as
you
include
the
beans
and
meat
and
top
with
the
potato
integral
to
this
delicious
recipe.

4.
Baked
Beans
Sausage
Rolls

These
are
ideal
to
bake
and
pack
for
lunchboxes,
or
a
day
out
in
the
wilderness

they
contain
beans
and
bacon
as
well
as
onion
and
cheese,
wrapped
in
puff
pastry.

If
you
don’t
fancy
making
individual
sausage
rolls,
make
one
large
pie
that
can
be
cut
and
served
at
a
family
dinner

it
takes
far
less
time.

the

5.
Beef
and
Beans
Casserole
with
Damper
Top

Damper
describes
a
wheat
bread
made
by
the
early
European
settlers
in
Australia.
The
Australian
Aboriginal
people
traditionally
made
their
bread
by
crushing
native
millet,
acacia
seed
and
spinifex,
as
well
as
other
seeds,
nuts
and
roots,
to
form
a
flour,
and
baking
it
over
the
coals.

These
days,
damper
consists
of
wheat
flour,
water,
and
butter,
and
is
baked
in
the
coals
of
a
campfire.
In
this
recipe
the
damper
dough
is
placed
in
balls
on
top
of
the
casserole
and
baked
either
in
the
home
oven,
or
in
a
Dutch
oven
in
the
coals
of
a
campfire.
It’s
a
great
all
in
one
meal
for
preppers.

6.
Poppy’s
Slow
Cooker
Vegetable
Soup

Fresh
vegetables
from
the
garden,
including
potatoes,
pumpkin,
celery,
carrots
and
onions,
go
into
this
dish
topped
up
with
canned
tomato
soup,
canned
baked
beans,
fresh
pork
sausage,
a
bacon
bone
and
bacon.

You
can
swap
out
vegetables
according
to
what
is
in
the
garden,
but
I
would
suggest
keeping
the
potato
as
it
thickens
the
soup.
This
does
not
need
to
be
made
in
a
slow
cooker

try
it
over
a
small
camp
fire
in
a
Dutch
oven,
and
let
it
cook
slowly
until
the
evening.

the
recipe.

Baked
Beans
Breakfast
Turkish
Style

Instead

the
items
separately

you

baked
beans,
bacon,
fried
eggs

sliced
tomato
all
sitting
separately
on
a
plate,
this
recipe
combines
them
into
one
simply
delicious
dish.

Canned
baked
beans,

tomato,
mushroom,

bacon
pieces
are
combined

a
skillet
with
the
eggs
gently
cooked
whole
on
their
bed
of
beans
and
tomato.
Cheese
grated
over
the
top
makes
it
a
yummy
breakfast!

This
recipe
doesn’t
call
for
the
addition
of
herbs,
but
if
you
have
in
your
herb
garden
then
parsley,
oregano
or
basil
would
go
well
with
this
dish.

Barbeque
Chicken
Tostadas

Loin
Chops

Braised
Lamb
Shanks
and
Baked
Beans
with
Molasses

This
takes
a
bit
of
time
as
dried
beans
are
used
instead
of
canned
beans,

as

shanks
take
a
while
to
cook
you
may
as
well
cook
the
beans
with
them.

Just
watch
the
level
of
liquid
as
the
beans
cook
as
they
will
absorb
the
liquid,
and
you
don’t
want
to
risk
the
dish
burning.
The
addition
of
beer
and
molasses
makes
for
a
great
flavor,
but
it
does
take
about
3
½
hours
until
it’s
done.

This
is
a
perfect
meal
to
cook
over
a
slow
campfire
in
a
Dutch
oven,
