Has anyone tried cooking beans or rice after using them as pie weights?

    Here's a recent thread where two folks reported on their outcomes:

    And an older one:

    Flavor-wise, doesn't sound like I'd do it.

      Nope. Not good eats after being baked. Better to save the beans in a container and reuse them for blind baking.

        I have not. I have been told that beans won't cook up right after having been baked in the oven. I have no personal knowledge of this nor have I seen any article saying that they tried it.
