Betsy's Fancy Baked Beans



My sister-in-law gave me a baked bean recipe years ago
called Block Party Beans.  It's yummy and I hadn't made it
in years, so I pulled the recipe out this week.

I didn't have all the ingredients and wanted to add a few
of my own ideas to it, and this is what it turned out to be.
We'll definitely be having these again....
I hope you try them and enjoy them as much as we did!



Betsy's Fancy Baked Beans

1/2 package thick sliced bacon
1 lb ground beef, extra lean
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 15oz can tomoto sauce
1/2 c ketchup
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 c brown sugar
A few dashes of liquid smoke
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
2 16 oz cans Bush's baked beans (original)
1 16 oz can great northern beans
1 16 oz can navy beans
1 16 oz can black beans
1 16 oz can butter beans
(**drain any beans that are watery**)

In large pot brown the beef and bacon.
Add the onions and celery and cook until tender.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
I'm sure the types of beans can be substituted
to suit your likes...I just wanted a variety in there.

Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Enjoy.

  1. Oooo, this sounds delicious! For a minute there I thought you were making chili !! HA!! We may just have to give these a try!! On your cans of beans, do you drain them prior to adding them in, or just dump the beans, juices, and all right in there?

    1. I only drained one can that was super watery. I think it was the butter beans. The others that were thick I just dumped them in!

  2. Oh I know how yummy those are. I have a very similar recipe and we call it "Kitchen Sink Beans"...not a very pretty name, but it has so many ingrediences it just got that nick name. I think I need to make some real soon. It makes such a big pot, I'll have to invite the kids.

    1. I have never had beans on toast! We just don't do that here! And we always doctor up the ones out of a tin...ketchup, mustard and brown sugar, mostly. If you lived close, I'd serve you some!

    2. Most kind of you, and I am not sure which I would enjoy most, the serving or your company . . .
      Morning and happy cookie baking . . . :)

  11. This looks like a very big recipe!
    And I can't believe you don't eat beans on toast. It is the easiest quickest dinner when you need to eat at once.

    1. Yes, it was big...five people ate from it and there is a some leftover!
      I guess the beans on toast is not an American thing. We would be more likely to
      put an egg on our toast. :)

  13. My family would LOVE this! I tried making baked beans last week without a recipe....turned out pretty good, but these would be a main dish with the beef in there. mmmmmm

    1. Yes, it could be! We had hot dogs and slaw with it, but Alex ate it as his main dish!
      Make sure you drain any watery beans...I forgot to add that until later!

  16. That sounds a lot like the dish my friend brought to a picnic years ago. It was delicious and I've always wondered how to make it. It's also the reason I throw all different kinds of beans into my chili. I love the look of all the different sized and colors.
