My husband ask’s me to make these for pretty much any event, birthdays, cook outs, get together’s, large eating occasions and today for the super bowl. I never have but a scoop left after I make them and when we are home we definitely go home empty handed because everyone has to “make a plate” to go. I have never shared this recipe but not because I don’t want to, because like many things I make it all by sight. No measurements or anything like that. Just by taste and the way it looks. So I measured somewhat for you today lol I say somewhat because I am guesstamating (yes that’s a made up word) I took pictures of EVERYTHING though so really you wont have to guess just make yours look like the picture and it will be just as good as mine 🙂 I hope you love these, trust me everyone you make them for will love them. (Unless they aren’t a bean fan then hey! more for everyone else.)
1 lb ground beef
1 package bacon
2 large can’s baked beans (of your choice)
light brown sugar
Adobo seasoning (optional)
Unless you have an extra large skillet like mine you should do half of the bacon at a time because you want it to get kinda crunchy, you dont want the bacon to be soggy in the beans after they have been cooking for hours.
I chose these as my baked beans and almost always do. I love Onions and I am adding sweeteners to my beans to make up for what these are lacking, now you can use whatever kind you like just remember to cut back on the sugar a bit if you are using say a maple one or something.
Stir and the is what they will look like, Yummy!! Let them cook on high for two hours or on low for four and eat and enjoy! Perfect with hot dogs or steaks, or any kind of “cook out” type food really. I really hope you saved your bacon grease that stuff is like liquid gold! I know it’s not healthy but come on now cooking with it every once in a while in a special dish will really make yours and everyone else’s day you are cooking for. Dont know how to use it? Ok go here and they will give you tons of recipes to use it in. Cooks.com trust me you will not regret it!
