I have many friends that are great cooks! They are kind enough to let me share this recipe! My friends Erin and Maryann are sisters. They come from a large family and I learned this recipe from them. They both have helped me with their recipe when I’ve wanted to make it for my family. This baked bean recipe is delicious, and easy to make too. You can make half the recipe for a small crowd of five, or double for a large crowd of 20 which I have often done when I cater. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
- 9×13″ foil pan
- saute’ pan
- cutting board
- container to drain grease
- 1/2 cup measure
- Three (3) 28 oz Bush’s Original Baked Beans (yes, try to use Bush’s they are the best!) 🙂
- 1 cup of diced white onion
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
- 1 pound of ground beef
- 1 pound of mild italian sausage*
- 1/4 cup of ketchup
- 1/4 cup of yellow mustard
Brown your ground beef and sausage over medium high heat until no longer pink.
Drain your meat and cool slightly. I like to break up the the meat into small crumbles.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Add your cooked meat and your chopped onions into the foil pan.
Add your cans of beans, ketchup, mustard and stir to combine well.
Sprinkle the top with the brown sugar and bake uncovered until bubbly and the top is browned. Usually takes 45 minutes.
*DELISH TIP 1: If you like spicy then use a hot sausage instead of plain sausage.
*DELISH TIP 2: If you don’t eat pork then use Turkey Sausage instead It’s still Delish! You can make it Vegan by using Vegetarian Beans and Seiten too!
