Easy, easy dish that is a meal on its own or a healthy side dish. Great quick protein hit for body builders or for after a workout at the gym. Invented (so the story goes) by me when as a baby I was served pork n beans and cottage cheese seperately, and I mashed them together. Why my mother tasted it after I mashed it up is beyond me.....

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 ounce) can pork and beans with molasses (Heinz recommended)
  • 1 cup 2% fat cottage cheese (alter to taste)


  1. Bring beans (in sauce) to a slow boil over medium heat on the stove, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  2. Remove beans from heat.
  3. Add cottage cheese and stir until mixed.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
