Cooking interesting meals with limited ingredients can be challenging. Though one can survive on pasta five nights a week, it’s nice to mix it up and bring a little variety when possible. With our Tasty Tuesdays, we will provide easy meals using ingredients you can typically find in a food hamper. Today, we present two delicious and fast egg-based meals.

1) Heat a medium skillet that has a lid over medium-high heat. Add the oil and let it get hot. Add diced onion and black pepper into the oil. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring regularly; or until the onions are soft and starting to brown slightly at the edges.
2) Add the sliced garlic. Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring regularly.
3) Stir the baked beans into the vegetables. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low-medium.
