Lovelymomma’s Pinto Beans

I have looked on Pinterest and other sites for a pinto bean recipe. I have found and tried many delicious recipes for them. They are just not what I am looking for in a recipe. I want a simple and easy recipe full of flavor. So I accidentally through trial and error came up with my own. It was a hit with my in-laws when we had a family get-together for a football game. This recipe has only two ingredients outside of water and pinto beans. I hope you find it simple and delicious as well.

Lovelymomma’s Pinto Beans


2 cups of pinto beans

6-8 cups of water

2 beef bouillon cubes

1/2 tsp – 1 Tbsp. Cajun seasoning or to taste

Rinse and sort your beans. Put them in a big pot with 6-8 cups of water and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Once they have boiled for one minute cover them and remove from heat. Let them sit for one hour in the boiling water. Once that hour is up drain and rinse beans again. This method is the quick soak method. Return the beans back to the same pot and put 6 – 8 cups of water in with them as well as the bouillon cubes and seasoning. I use 6 cups of water because I do not like a lot of pinto bean juice. Let the beans boil once they get boiling cover and lower heat. Let them cook for 2 – 3 hours or till beans are to your desired tenderness. After they are done enjoy with any meal or by themselves. We love them with some good yummy honey corn bread.

After you have all the crescents rolled and on the pan then bake for 15 minutes. While they are baking make your Au Jus sauce according to the package instructions. Then when all is done just enjoy your french dip recipe by dipping in the sauce and having a nice conversation with the family. 

Yummy Scotch Eggs

Trying new recipes are fun and an insight to different cultures, especially if it’s a recipe from another country. It’s a way of trying a different cuisine from some place you want to travel to but can’t. So here is Yummy Scotch Eggs that unlike its name originated from England.


So the earliest that this awesome dish’s name was discovered was around about the early 1800’s but as a main dish served with delicious gravy but not with bread crumbs. The bread crumb crust comes later. When the dish was actually created is a bit unknown since as years go by some of the history kind of disappears but I’m not really worried about when it was created. I’m just glad that it was created. 

Now for those who don’t know what Scotch eggs recipe are they are a boiled egg, wrapped in a sausage ball, coated in breadcrumb, and then fried. Now some recipes call for regular or flavored bread crumbs. I used Panko because it gave an awesome crunch to this already great easy dish. Also, even though it calls for regular ground sausage you could switch it up by using different flavors like hot and spicy, sage, maple, or turkey. Don’t be afraid to modify the recipe right off the bat to your liking.  

The recipe takes time to make but, it is worth it. The flavor is enjoyable and the texture is awesome. The family ate the eggs up quickly with Baby Ray’s Secret Sauce. It gave it extra zing to the egg when dipped in it. It is wonderful for lunch. breakfast, on the go snack, or as a picnic dish. Try it and enjoy.

Yummy Scotch Eggs Recipe:


12 eggs, boiled and peeled

2 pounds of ground breakfast sausage, any flavor you like. 

     Cut into 12 equal pieces.

½ cup of flour

4 eggs, beaten

1 -½ cups of bread crumbs, any flavor

     Or panko crumbs

Vegetable or Canola oil, for frying


Eat oil in a large pan to about medium to medium high heat. Take an egg roll it in flour (will help the sausage stick to the egg). Take a piece of sausage, flatten it in your hand then put the egg in the middle and wrap the sausage around it. Then roll it around in your hand to make it shape like the egg. Roll it in your crumbs and set to the side. Do the same with the other eggs. Then put 3 – 4 in the hot oil and fry to light to medium golden brown on all sides (about 4 minutes on each side). Take them out of oil and set on a paper towel covered plate to drain oil. When all are done serve warm or cool with whatever sauce you like.

This dish paired with French fries, mashed potatoes, rice dish, or any side is a delicious meal that the family will love. Check out these other awesome recipes: French Dip Crescents, Lovely Momma’s Pinto Beans, or Jalapeño Popper Themed Dinner.
