Ground Beef and Baked Bean Casserole Recipe – ground beef, pork and beans baked in a homemade bbq sauce and topped with bacon. Perfect side dish for holiday BBQs. Can make ahead and bake when ready.
No BBQ dinner is complete without a good side of baked beans. We served these beans with the ribs we posted yesterday. We both loved these beans. They reminded Chicken Legs of the Tequila Beans at J. Alexander’s, his favorite. The beans have a wonderful flavor and are a breeze to make. You might want to double the recipe if you are feeding a crowd. Chicken Legs ate almost half of the pan by himself!
