This delicious Pork & Beans Cowboy Casserole is bound to be a new family favourite for camping OR at home! Sometimes Mr Magpie surprises me with what he loves to eat. While I didn’t think that he would hate this dish, I didn’t think that he would absolutely flip out over it and have two helpings. I enjoyed it : he is obsessed with it for camping now.

After 17 years of marriage you would think that there were very few surprises left to be surprised with. Of course, I’m the only one that’s married to Mr Kitchen Magpie, so it goes without saying that he adept at throwing curve balls now and then. This Pork & Beans Cowboy Casserole was one of those moments.  Don’t get me wrong, this is a good dish and I am keeping in on the camping menu for summer now, but Mike is literally obsessed with it.

I knew that he liked canned pork and beans, that was an easy one, I’ve also been camping with the man for 17 years. I didn’t know that a pork and beans casserole would make him flip out though.

He ate this the next day as leftovers.

If you know Mike, then you’ll know that he doesn’t eat leftovers easily. He is one of THOSE people. I’ll never be able to relate, to be honest, because I love leftovers. Cold steak for breakfast? Yum. Leftover chicken? Hellloooo sandwich!

Mike? He’ll pop two pieces of raisin toast in the toasted and slather it with peanut butter instead of eating leftovers if he had his way. This pork and beans cowboy casserole on the other hand he happily ate the next day.

This was a hearty, delicious casserole that can easily be made with homemade biscuits on top if you so desire. I think that would make this absolutely perfect! We were camping, so I just used canned biscuits instead.

The biscuits cook up beautifully on top of the beans mixture, you simply need a lid or tinfoil. This would be perfect in a dutch oven over the campfire, but I like using my cast iron. You can cook it in the oven at home as well, simply use the temperature that is listed on the biscuit dough container or the recipe.

Speaking of which, try my Best Biscuits Ever Recipe for some really good biscuits to put on top!

Happy cooking and camping!

Love,
