Tasty Tuesday: Baked Beans ala Trinity

Every third Tuesday or so, I'll be taking a break from spreading the message of Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi (that scantily clad women cause earthquakes) to bring you simple recipes inspired by some of the movies reviewed at Cinema Steve and related blogs. The dishes will be simple and hopefully fun to share with your movie-watching buddies.

Up first, is Baked Beans ala Trinity (although it is inspired just as much by any number of Spaghetti Western comedies as baked beans eaten straight from the pan seem to be a common theme in them).

Baked Beans ala Trinity


1 can of Bush Country Style Baked Beans (16 oz. can for 2-3 servings, 28 oz. can for 5-6 servings)
4% fat ground beef (1/4 pound for 2-3 servings, 1/2 pound for 5-6 servings)

Step One: Brown ground beef in a no-stick (or lightly greased) small frying pan for 2-3 servings, or a large frying pan for 5-6 servings.

Step Two: Pour baked beans from can into frying pan. Stir. Heat to simmer.

Serve in pan with thick-sliced pieces of French bread and butter. Be careful, because the pan will be hot.

While Trinity always eats directly from the pan, you probably want to provide a serving spoon and individual plates and spoons for your guests. They can still use the bread slices to mop up any leftover sauce in the pan, just like Trinity, however.


  1. I wonder if they served this in Gitmo.

  2. There's usually a piece of bacon (or just a lump of bacon fat in some brands) in each can, so one would think not.

    But if I had been warden....
