These Amazing Baked Beans are thick, hearty and perfectly balanced between sweet and savory! Just like your mother made them! They’re the perfect side dish for summer potlucks and outdoor BBQs.


3/4 lb ground beef, optional
Two 16 oz cans baked beans
3/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion (1/2 small onion)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
45 tbsp crumbled cooked bacon (6 to 8 slices bacon)
Dash of hot sauce


1. Preheat oven to 350°F and have a 9×13 inch baking dish ready.
2. Add the ground beef to a large pan and cook until browned and cooked through. Drain the meat mixture.
3. Combine the beef with the baked beans, onion, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and all other ingredients in your baking dish and spread evenly.
4. Cover the beans with aluminum foil and bake for 25-35 minutes, then remove the foil and cool for another 5-10 minutes. I prefer them thicker and chunkier, so I bake them on the longer side. If you prefer them a little less thick, cook them less. Keep in mind that they’ll thicken as they cool. Serve warm.
