Hurst's Pizza Beans

Hurst's Pizza Beans
I made Hurst's Pizza Beans for dinner on Saturday night. They were very good and hearty and I will be adding these to our menu rotation. 

You can find the recipe by clicking on the link above or here

The recipe can be very versatile. For example, the recipe calls for green peppers, which I like, but other family members don't and they do tend to permeate a dish when they are included, so I simply left them out. 

There is a list of suggested add-ins at the recipe site, which includes black olives. As we were eating these I was thinking black olives would be a good addition. 

The recipe actually says to add any of your favorite pizza toppings to the beans. 

My daughter said the dish reminded her of lasagna. Probably because of the use of the marinara sauce. We didn't even use much cheese either, just a small sprinkling on top, so there is a big savings on cheese for this dish verses actual lasagna. 

And of course using beans instead of noodles helps to keep my blood sugar stable. 

Please let me know if you decide to try the recipe and what you think of it.   :)

  1. That does look good! I wonder if just using tomato sauce would work, then add some Italian seasoning.

    1. I'm sure it would, Carol. I think anything you would add to pizza you could add to this. I was even thinking of adding Italian seasoning to mine yesterday, but didn't do it.

  2. That does sound delicious! Thanks for the recipe link, Belinda! I would think the addition of sausage and or pepperoni would not only add to the flavor, but also add good texture.

    Have a great= day!

    1. I agree, Lili. I think the sausage and pepperoni helped to make the dish hearty. :)

  3. These sound great! Love the versatility. I would make it without the meat and add vegetarian crumbles toward the end. Totally love meals like that.

    1. That would be good too, Busy Bee. I have used the Morningstar crumbles in many dishes.

  4. Belinda, I tried a new to me chili recipe that made me think of you. I think you might like it. I did share the link on my blog. I can't figure out how to put a clickable one in the comment.
