Any ideas for canned pork n beans other than the obvious?

I have accumulated my share of canned pork n beans but my family wont eat them ( other than myself). Does anyone know of anything to do with them other than baking them or just heating them out of the can?

Jojo beans

Named after my Aunt Jojo!

Tow cans prok and beans, add barbeque sauce, brown sugar, and ground beef to taste.
Then put one can of ready made bicuts on top, I pull them in half so it cooks faster. After the biscuts are doen, I add some cheddar cheese, and melt it.
i cook it for about 1/2 hour at 375, then the melting time. Sorry there aren't measurements, i was never given any.
None of my kids eat Pork and Beans, but they all LOVE this!
I couldn't leave my kids for 8 hours a day, I'd miss their whole childhood!

To the above recipe I also add: onions, mustard, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, and whatever other flavorings you like to "dress them up". I just heat them in the crockpot--delicious!

I've never put the biscuits and cheese on top, but that sounds good too!

My mother adds them to chili along with the kidney beans - It adds a slightly sweet flavor - Sometimes she adds green beans & lima beans along with some brown sugar & some seasonings & makes what we call party beans - They are absolutely great!!!

I'm not real fond of P & B plain, so I cut up hot dogs, and add someketchup, mustard and brown sugar, mix up and bake. Really good with a fresh piece of bread and butter to sop up the juice, Mmmmmmmmm

Every since I was a kid I have loved this: toast a piece of bread, butter lightly, add heated up pork and beans on top of toast and top with a slice of cheese. Put in oven to melt cheese. Yummy!!

Before heating pork and beans I:
use 3 cans pork and beans, add babeque sauce, a package of cut up hot dogs, a can of diced green chilies and shredded cheddar cheese.

Just stocked up on pork and beans this weekend too. I like the idea of adding them to a sloppy joe type mixture would stretch the meat out. Thanks

Drain off the juice but keep it in reserve just in case dip looks a little to thick. Put the remainder in your food processer along with chopped onion, a dash of cayene or chili powder (either to taste) and a bit of salsa. Process them and call it tortilla dip. Can add cheese in for another texture. Could use in tortilla shells too.

I've added them to chili when I was short a bean or two and doctored them up like baked beans. Just thought, maybe you could rinse them off and add them to salads. Left over canned beans can be added to soup too.

One of my favorite lunches as a child (it's still a favorite!) was what my mother called bean sandwiches. It's very similar to momto3's recipe, but my mom always fried several slices of chopped bacon with a medium chopped onion and then added the can of pork and beans to the frying pan. She let it bubble away on medium heat for 5-10 minutes and then spooned it over buttered toast. The aroma when we walked into the house for lunch was almost as good as the food! The cheese on top idea sounds wonderful! This is what I alway think of as "comfort food".

Another really delicious, but easy, dish is this recipe for meatballs. In a blender or food processor, combine a can of pork and beans (the cheaper, the better), 1 package of taco seasoning mix, and one 8 oz. can of tomato sauce or an undiluted can of tomato soup. Blend or pulse until smooth. Add a small chopped onion and pour over browned meatballs (frozen pre-cooked or your own recipe). Simmer for 25-30 minutes or put into a crockpot on low for 3-4 hours. You can serve these as is, or put out tortillas, cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce to wrap and eat. They also make great "Mexican Meatball Subs", using the same add-ons and served on hoagie rolls. If you like hot foods as much as I do, add a tiny can of chopped jalapeno peppers or two chopped, seeded fresh jalapenos when you simmer the meatballs. Chopped, fresh cilantro is delicious sprinkled on top.
