Baked Beans

July 15, 2011 in beans by amanda

I am baked bean obsessed. To say the least. It’s not uncommon for me to buy a can and then eat them everyday for a week straight. I eat them plain, on roasted sweet potatoes, on toast, pretty much any way you can imagine. But I’ve never made my own until recently.

Granted, this recipe starts out with a can of pork & beans but still… I made them, right?

I usually buy the super sweet Bush’s beans with maple syrup so this recipe was quite a change. It’s not sweet at all but it’s so delicious! If you wanted to take this to a large cookout, it’s very easy to double – double everything but the soup mix.

Baked Beans
  • 1/2 pound ground beef, cooked
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 1 (15 oz) can Van Camps pork & beans
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine ground beef, water, white vinegar, onion soup mix, pork & beans, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and garlic. Stir well and pour into an 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Top with bacon and cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
