One pot recipes

Good for camping or just eating anytime…

1 can green beans
1 small can Vienna sausages
1-1 1/2 Cup mashed potato flakes

put green beans and sausages in a pot and warm. Scoot them to one side, leaving hot juices. Dump in mashed potato flakes. Eat. (If several are eating, slice up the Vienna sausages so it seems like everyone has more meat and add an extra can of green beans and some extra potato flakes.)


1/2 pound hamburger
1 can condensed bean with bacon soup
1 can Italian diced tomatoes
some water (at least half a can, more if you want)

Partially cook the hamburger. Add the tomatoes and bean with bacon soup. Cook until the hamburger is completely cooked. Eat.


Both of these are pretty hearty and decently healthy. Both are also very tasty. Best of all, they can be done in one pot without any extra seasonings or additives and with very little work or attention. The green bean one works well with other kinds of meat and non-meat substitutes, too, and I’m fairly certain the tomato one would work nearly as well with baked beans or pork n’ beans, though I haven’t tried it.


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
