Campfire Beans (Dutch oven)

Recommended Posts

Beans around the campfire have been around ever since Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles" showed guys just how hilarious flatulence could be.  Back in the old days, Cookie would soak the beans overnight and the beans would cook most of the day.  Scouts today just don't have that much patience!  Fortunately, a tasty pot of beans can be made in short order using off-the-shelf ingredients.  Here's how...


  • 1 2-lb. can of pork and beans
  • 4 slices of bacon, sliced into squares  
  • 1 package Lipton onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup of ketchup
  • 1/8 cup cider vinegar

Mix all ingredients except bacon in Dutch oven. Place bacon on top of the bean mixture, cover as much of the top as possible. Cover. Cook over and under hot coals, for at least an hour.
