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.
