Bacon Baked Beans

These bacon-y, beefy baked beans are all that and a bag of chips. It is a super easy recipe, but this side dish will put you down in history at your summer barbecues this year! 
 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef, 90% lean *
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 28 ounces baked beans , 1 can (I used Bush's Original)
  • 15 ounces pork and beans, 1 can
  • 30 ounces black beans, 2 cans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, I used Sweet Baby Rays
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  • Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Remove to a large bowl and discard the fat.
  • In the same skillet, cook the bacon. You can either chop it beforehand or crumble it afterward. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of bacon grease from the pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Saute the onions until they are translucent, about 5-8 minutes.
  • in a large bowl, combine ground beef, bacon, onions, baked beans, pork and beans, black beans, barbecue sauce, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Taste it. Add more BBQ sauce if you want.
  • Spread the beans into a 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the oven down to 350 and cover the beans with foil. Bake for another 20-30 minutes.
  • I like mine extra crispy on top, so I broil them for a couple minutes, but that's not necessary unless you like slightly burned beans. (I mean who doesn't.) Serve hot!

Notes

*Use 90%, otherwise your beans will end up greasy.
