Homemade Baked Beans Recipe

We have been making this baked beans recipe in my family for years now, and it’s one of my absolute favorites! I’ve always loved baked beans, but there’s just something hearty and special about this recipe. Plus it’s SUPER easy to put together, so it’s a great weeknight dinner recipe! This recipe makes two 9×13 pans of baked beans; you can easily freeze one pan so you have a ready-to-go freezer meal for some other night of the week!

Homemade Baked Beans Recipe - a quick and easy weeknight dinner!

February is National Canned Food Month, and Jewel-Osco is helping us celebrate! In honor of National Canned Food Month I decided to share one of my favorite recipes with you all. We always used canned beans as the base of this recipe, which makes it really quick and easy to throw everything together into a delicious dish. All we had to do was head to our local Jewel, grab the cans of beans, and get cooking!

Preheat the oven to 350.

Cut the strips of uncooked bacon into small pieces. Remove the skins from the sausages and cut the meat into bite-sized pieces. Chop the red onion.

In a large frying pan, sauté the ground beef, bacon, sausage, and red onion until the ground beef is cooked. The bacon won’t be fully cooked, but don’t worry; it’ll finish cooking in the oven later!

While the meat is cooking, mix together all the other ingredients in a large bowl.

Once the meat is browned, drain the grease and add the meat to the bowl.

Mix well, then pour the beans into two 9×13 pans. If you’re planning to freeze one, do so now before you cook it.

Bake the other pan at 350 for 1 hour. Then pull it out of the oven and enjoy!
