I saw the thread so I better deliver. A couple things....I don't always measure exact amounts so I will approximate some of them (you can't really go wrong) and.....they aren't baked! I make them on the stove top, but you can bake them or put them in a crock pot too.

2 large cans of B&M Baked Beans (these are the absolute best, substitute other brands at your own peril)

1 lb. ground beef

1 Pkg bacon (I think they are around 12 oz. these days, but 1 lb. works too if that's what they sell)

1 large sweet Onion, chopped

Molasses (maybe 1/4 - 1/3 cup)

Ketchup (maybe 1/4 - 1/2 cup)

Yellow Mustard (maybe 1/4 cup)

Brown Sugar (maybe 1/4 - 13 cup)

Black Pepper (to taste)

Brown the ground beef in a large pot, drain grease/ remove beef from pot.

Brown the bacon in the same pot, drain grease/ remove bacon from pot.

Sauté the chopped onion in the same pot until it starts turning yellow'ish/ clear.

Add the beef and bacon back to the pot with the onions.

Add the beans to the pot.

Add the molasses, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and black pepper.

Stir to combine the ingredients.

Bring to low boil, then cover and simmer for a couple hours, stirring regularly so it doesn't stick to the bottom.

Eat when they are ready, and they always taste a little better the next day.

Enjoy!

Where do you find authentic B&M baked beans?

Not trying to derail your tasty recipe, but the original company closed in 2021. It says that production was moved to Iowa and outsourced the balance of ingredients to factories in other states.

It sounds like the good old days of beans cooked in open pots in Portland are long gone :(

I buy them at Fred Meyer here in Oregon. Safeway has them, as well as Amazon, Walmart, etc. They're still around, I have a couple cans in my pantry :)

Where do I place my order, Roy? And do you accept personal checks on EOD's account?

you can order here, but you have to come to Oregon to pick them up.

As far as EOD checking account goes, I'm sure he'd gladly pay me Tuesday for a bowl of baked beans today, so probably no on that one.

Hey, I have a relative who lives in Oregon. Just around the Bend, in a sense.

I'll just tell him to follow the rainbow!

He may just find a pile of skittles if he does that. And, if it's the year of Christ's return, there won't be any rainbows, so that could complicate things.

Correction.....

Brown Sugar (maybe 1/4 - 1/3 cup)

EOD can still use 13 cups per my typo, he likes his extra sweet!

I thought EOD liked his food extra spicy. I figured that he would be asking to replace brown sugar with tabasco sauce.

Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce, maybe 1/2 Tablespoon.

Two things. Make it three.

1. It sounds incredible!

2. I don't cook.

3. I am apparently incapable of learning how to pronounce Worcestershire sauce. It's a tongue-twister for me so my brain just blanks out. Too many syllables and/or too many 's' sounds all in a row. Or something like that.

Oh, there's a #4: This thread keeps making me unbearably hungry. For something that's not in my kitchen. (Where not a lot of cooking takes place).

Yum though.

PS: In case I ever do manage to rustle up the beans: Can you substitute the W sauce with HP? Because HP is the one holy and true God of sauce in a bottle.

I had to google HP sauce :) I'm sure you could substitute with it, you actually don't need the W sauce, but I always add a sploosh.

Here's one for you if you're not a "cook".

I buy small flour tortilla's (they're called "Street Tacos" in the store, I think Mission is the Brand. They are about 4 or 5 inches in diameter. You can use larger ones too.

Put them on a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment, spread some pizza sauce on them (I buy it in a bottle for a couple bucks), sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese (I buy it in a bag) over the sauce, add toppings (pepperoni is easy), sprinkle more cheese on top, sprinkle Italian seasoning on top, bake at 425 F for about 12 minutes or when done to your liking.

Makes a great meal or snack when you're craving pizza or something hot and savory.

Please tell me can "cook" this :)

Roy, what size can of beans? Safeway only has the 16 oz.

Pretty sure its 16 oz. Its the size up from the smaller cans which are about the size of a regular soup can. I've also used 3 of the small cans.

Hope it turns out nice, you really can't mess it up. I think the mustard is the one thing you might not want to overdo, but otherwise you should be fine.

My mom used to make these, or very similar, when I was a kid. My mom was from the mid-west. When I married my wife, I made them and her mom commented that they reminded her of the mid-west. She was from the mid-west too, so maybe it was a thing over there.

IT"S ON THE CAN! Label says BAKED beans. Plus I added my disclaimer in the original post :)

Sure, you could bake them again but why bother?

I know! It’s about 10:30 am, I’m browning the bacon, and some adult children just woke up to see if I was making French toast. If their eyes had been open, they’d seen me glaring. I might get over my aversion to calling them lazy at some point.

It looks and smells amazing. I skipped the mustard but did add the wurst-a-shear, so once everything melds, I’ll tell you how it tastes.

I was having a helluva time getting the pot to deglaze when I sautéed the onions, but all the frond came loose when I added the meat, beans, etc.

Thank you!

Roy, you should be proud and thanks for sharing this.

Now I'm going to have to try and make them for the family.

Maybe someday I can see how it turns out with plant protein fake ground beef and some kind of fake bacon substitutes. I would prefer that for me if it works.

PS
Beth, I think you might find that kids living in the next town is even better than down the street. ;-)

Not really. I think there are fake bacon bit thingies maybe. Maybe I'll settle for turkey bacon if it will work.

I'm a vegan wannabe but not very good at it most of the time. These beans sound too good not to try.
