This is our new favorite baked bean dish. I am not a huge bean fan, but these are AWESOME! Tadd said he could just eat the beans as his meal. This was SO easy to put together and would be the perfect side dish to take to a potluck.
1/2 lb ground beef, browned and drained
1/4 cup water
1/2 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 pkg onion soup mix (I pulse mine in the food processor to chop up the onions)
1 (15 oz) can Van Camps pork & beans
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp prepared mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 lb bacon, cooked
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients except bacon together and spread in a 8x8 dish. Top with cooked bacon. Cover with aluminum foil and bake covered for 30 mins, then uncovered for 15 mins.
