Basic savory wieners and beans – quick, easy and comforting.

Okay, so this is not a glamorous dish. It’s mostly suited to camping or sitting around a roaring fire. Maybe even a quick lunch at home. My dad used to make this for me sometimes. But this savory wieners and beans recipe made with canned brown beans in tomato sauce is:

  • full of protein – beans and tuna are the most popular canned proteins
  • filling – protein helps you feel fuller longer 
  • easy to make – my 12 year old actually made the wieners and beans for this post (she kinda rocks!)
