This was really good! I tried dipping it in a little ketchup, and that came out good, as well. I would not recommend slicing it in half, though, as this causes everything to fall apart very quickly. Make sure the beans are very smashed, too. I'll definitely make this again!
This was fun to try. Tasted good! We're gonna have fun playing with this recipe! Update: We made these again today and decided to add a little to it. So, we buttered one side on each slice of bread, added some sliced vegetarian hot dogs to the beans and grilled the sandwich on our Foreman grill. Yum! A little messy but a lot of delicious!!!
I used to make these as a kid,but haven't had one for years. I had it for lunch yesterday and even DH loved it. Thanks for posting.
Very tasty combination! I used a regular sandwich bun instead of the rye as it was what I had on hand. Thanks for the yummy and different sandwich idea Lori!
I thought this sandwich sounded a little strange but I like trying different things...Well let me tell you it is a FABULOUS COMBO OF FLAVORS....It works really well. I used Baked Beans Dressed for Dinner for the beans and they were sweet which went perfect with the quality kosher pickle and sharp cheddar cheese. I tried it both on pumpernickle and light rye and liked the pumpernickle better. My only problem was not smashing the beans so I could get a pretty photo...so upon eating it they were all falling out! Next time I know to smash them like refried beans. This will be a regular in my house. Thanks so much for this recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2007.
I had this sandwich for breakfast this morning and loved it! I know some might shy away from the recipe because of the combination of ingredients but they really do go well together. When you think about it, most people eat hamburgers, right? What do we serve as a side? Baked beans! And what do we put on hamburgers? Cheese and pickles! You get my point. ;) I used the recommended Heinz Vegetarian Baked Beans but would like to try it again using a sweeter bean, such as Bush's Honey Baked. I needed a little more sweetness to cut the the sharpness of the cheese and the sourness of the pickle but that's just personal preference. Thanks for posting a great sammie recipe, Dorie's Lori!
