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.
- 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
Preheat oven to 350F.
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.
Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
