Beef and Bacon Baked Beans

Apparently, all I can think about lately is hearty, beefy comfort food! Last week was my special ingredient meatloaf recipe, and now I have an extra meaty baked beans recipe for you today! Maybe it’s the cooler weather. Maybe it’s my husband’s beef-loving ways starting to rub off on me. Or maybe it’s just because being a carnivore is so utterly delicious! Sorry vegetarians… just look away this week!

Okay… let’s talk baked beans. Do you love ‘em or hate ‘em? If we’re talking about the straight out of a can, plain jane baked beans, you can count me out. I’ll save room on my plate for something else! But if we’re talking about good baked beans with beef and bacon and barbecue sauce and brown sugar and bacon and oh, did I mention bacon? Yeah, I’m in!

This meaty baked beans recipe is easy and inexpensive to make and happens to be the perfect side dish for parties, cookouts, or tailgating. With options for baking in the oven OR using your slow cooker, this recipe is sure to become a family favorite!

Perfect baked beans made extra meaty with ground beef and bacon! Full of flavor, easy to make, and a great side for parties, cookouts, or tailgating! | LoveGrowsWild.com
