In this house eating breakfast for dinner is totally legit. We call it “brinner” and it rhymes with “winner” for a very good reason. Beans are often the hero and almost always feature in the best brinners.
Beans, beans, they’re good for your heart, the more you eat, the more you… (insert your word of choice here.) I know beans cause a lot of bottom burping but I love them to bits! Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as I’ve already mentioned, brinner, they’re so versatile.
I’ve been meaning to try and make some of my own for a while ever since I saw some delicious looking specimens over at Katie 180. Sorry Heinz, it’s time for you and me to break up. Making beans in the thermie, is so cheap and so easy, and most importantly, so tasty, that I’ll never buy baked beans again! Thank you Katie for the inspiration!
