Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine bacon, ground beef, and onions in a kettle. Cook over medium heat until onion is softened and meat is partially cooked. Add sugars, vinegar, dry mustard, ketchup and chili sauce. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
  2. Then add beans, transfer to a large baking dish and bake for one hour at 325 degrees.
  3. Can be prepared in a Crockpot, but the beans will retain more liquid. Oven-baking is really best.

I never know what to do with leftover baked beans. I fixed this for dinner last night and boy was it a hit! I simply added a couple of ingredients that weren't in my baked beans such as the beef and chilli sauce. Easy and enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing.
