This Baked Beans recipe is so meaty, it's almost a main course instead of a side dish! My family loves it, and my husband's family always likes it when I bring this dish to family gatherings.
3 large cans Van Camp's Baked Beans (Original style)
1/2 lb. bacon, cut into small pieces
1 lb. hamburger, browned
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook bacon pieces until crisp; drain on paper towels. In remaining bacon grease, add onion and cook until golden (almost carmelized). Remove from pan and drain. Add hamburger to pan, and cook until browned; remove from pan and drain.
In large Dutch Oven, add all ingredients; stir to blend. Bring to simmer, then removed from heat, cover, and place in oven. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.*
*These also do well in a Crockpot. If using this method, cook on low 4-6 hours.
