Grandma's Pork and Bean Sandwiches

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"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 ...

Turkey bacon may also be used to make it more healthy. I agree with some of the reviews here. I like the taste of precooking the bacon and toasting the bread before assembly. Great suggestions! ...

I have not made this recipe yet but I did a search because I was craving what my Mama used to make. She called these by the same name but ours had a whole slice or three of onion on them (three ...

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...

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.
