What’s for dinner tonight?

Sometimes after a long day, this is one of the scariest questions you can hear. Getting home tired with no plan and a hungry family waiting can be a nightmare.

It’s times like these that it pays to have a go-to easy recipe to fall back on. This cheesy bean and bacon casserole fits the bill perfectly!

Chances are you can likely whip this dish together with ingredients you already have in your pantry or fridge, so you won’t have to run back out to the store! Chop up some of your favorite green, red or yellow peppers and onion and mix it up with some of Randall Beans’ famous mixed beans. Don’t forget the bacon, of course.

Casseroles are often thought to be cold-weather cooking. But, this recipe is one of our year-round favorites. Hearty enough to satisfy the winter chill, but light enough to enjoy out on the back porch in summer. Let’s recap: quick, easy and great all year. This casserole is definitely a culinary triple threat!

Perfect for family dinner, potlucks or any get-together. This is also a fun recipe to try to make several smaller portions and serve in ramekins or other small casserole dishes for personal servings.

Making 6 to 8 servings, this bean and bacon casserole is just enough to feed a hungry family and still have leftovers. Keeps well refrigerated for 3-4 days.

So, next time you are presented with the scary question of what’s for dinner, you’ve got yourself an answer! Try it for dinner tonight or this weekend!
