Blame the Dog Bean Casserole

     I must confess,  I was drawn more to the name of this recipe than it's ingredients.  Posted on Allrecipes, it's a filling campfire casserole that can be altered to your liking.  In my 10 inch dutch oven, the beans baked for one hour, undisturbed, with 10 coals in a ring around the base of the oven and 20 on the lid.  Almost better the next day, it's an easy and inexpensive way to feed your hungry campers and be sure to pack a slotted spoon for serving.

  1. What is a Dog Bean?

    ...Oh, wait...


  2. Read the labels to see that the food you choose has high levels of proteins and low levels of fats and carbohydrates. In their natural habitats, dogs do not eat carbohydrates, and while their bodies can process them better than cats, they are not a natural part of any dog's diet. best puppy food for corgis
