Jeffrey’s Baked Beans

My brother-in-law, Jeffrey, is such a creative person. That extends to the kitchen, as well.

Several years ago, he introduced these baked beans at a family meal. I think I’ve since seen similar recipes in cookbooks, but I still give him full credit for these delicious beans.

I’ve thrown in a few modifications of my own.

Oh, and like the squash casserole (earlier post), this recipe, too, would not be classified in the “healthy” category. (Maybe one day I’ll post some healthier recipes.)

Jeffrey’s Baked Beans

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2-3 28 oz. cans of Bush’s Baked Beans (with onion)
ketchup, mustard, worcestershire sauce
3-4 strips bacon

Brown ground beef with garlic, onion, and pepper. Drain well. Mix with beans. Stir in ketchup, mustard, and worcestershire sauce to taste, about 2-3 T each. Pour into large casserole dish. Lay bacon on top. Bake at 375 degrees, uncovered, until beans are bubbly and bacon is brown.
