Grandma's Pork and Bean Sandwiches

Recipe by  

"This is a baked version of an American favorite. My grandma used to make these for us. It's more like a half sandwich since the ingredients are actually baked on top of a slice of bread."

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Place bread slices on a broiling pan that has been lined with aluminum foil. Spoon about 1/2 cup of beans onto each piece of bread. Cover each pile of beans with a slice of cheese. Place three half-slices of bacon onto each sandwich so that they are not hanging over the edge.
  3. Broil for 5 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bacon is cooked and cheese is melted. Watch them carefully! I suggest leaving the oven door cracked near the 5 minute mark to allow some of the oven heat to escape.

A no-frills dish - not gourmet but tasty. I fried the bacon, heated the beans, and toasted the bread before assembling and broiling in the toaster oven until the (cheddar) cheese melted. More work and more dishes, but the final product came out better. This way there wasn't bacon grease all over everything, the cheese didn't disappear into the beans, and the bread didn't disintegrate - my husband was able to eat it by picking it up.

My eight year old rated this. I would have given it one star. The bread turns out soggy and the bacon doens't crisp. You do need to keep a close eye on it the last minute or two. I would recommend this for teenage boys. I can see why they would like it, but I'm deleteing it from my recipe box.

Very good!!! I was skeptical about my husband liking this, but he did. He said he wouldn't want it every week or anything, but every now and then. It was so simple and FAST to make. I will use this recipe again when I am in a big hurry. Thanks.

I know..kind of dumb to rate your own recipe BUT this is really good. It's quick and it's easy to please even most teenage boys' appetites. Turkey bacon may also be used to make it more healthy. In fact, that is what I use almost all the time.

I took the suggestion of cooking the bacon and toasting the bread first because I like crunchy things. I always drain pork 'n beans. I liked the combination of ingredients.

This recipe brought back memories of my childhood. My mother made these often but used hamburger buns. She buttered the halves before putting the beans on--helps to keep the bread from getting soggy!

I would make this again. I used whole wheat instead of white bread, since that's what I had. Next time though, I will cook the bacon prior to putting the sandwiches into the broiler.

Sounded gross at first, but I looked again and tried it. Simple but very good.
