The Best Baked Beans

This recipe for baked beans is hearty and thick. Bring these to your next potluck and everyone will agree that these are the best baked beans.

Baked beans have never been something that I have to have. I have one recipe on this blog for baked beans and it’s my friend Heidi’s Famous Baked Beans. They’re fabulous which is why I didn’t feel the need to ever look for another recipe. Everyone that makes them, loves them. Heidi’s recipe however doesn’t have beef in it, so I feel like there’s also room for this recipe which has a whopping pound and a half of savory beef. The sauce is a mixture of ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire, soy sauce, and spicy brown mustard. The sauce blends beautifully in the oven, simmering away for 45 minutes. Add this to your Fourth of July menu!

  1. All lovely recipes. Thanks so much. Happy 4th to you and your family.

  2. You call Heidi’s Baked Beans ‘meatless’, with pork and bacon in it? ;)

    • No Ina, these aren’t the vegetarian beans, which are named Heidi’s Baked Beans. This recipe for beans WITH meat is a different recipe than the vegetarian one, thus has a completely different name. They are Best Baked Beans. Hope that clears things up for you!

  3. Oh my these look delicious, and great timing! I am always searching for good baked beans to take to cookouts, and always end up with canned (shhhhh). I’ll definitely try these this year!

  4. Im pinning this to make next time we cook out! These look a billion times better than the canned ones that I serve!

  5. These look and sound fabulous. The only thing they are missing is a little crushed pineapple! Try it, you’ll love it. Thanks for the recipe!

  6. Wow! Although I am not a fan of baked beans, I can say that I would love to try these. They seem to be delicious. Thanks for sharing from 3girls1apple.com

  8. The only baked beans I’ve ever had are those from the Heinz can. These look SO much better haha! No comparison. I love the bacon bits :)

  9. This sounds so yummy but I’d like to try it in a slow cooker as it’s sooo hot hot now.Do you think this will adapt well?

  10. Baked beans make the best side dish for summer barbecues. I could probably eat that whole dish myself!

  11. I love baked beans – these sound great!

  12. Well I am a fan of baked beans. These look like winning recipe to me. I suspect they taste like a winning recipe. Of course as you know they are perfect for summer barbies, but wow with fresh bread and a salad what a great comfort fall and winter dish too.

  13. Great! Thanks for sharing the recipes of your very own Baked Beans. I tried it yesterday together with my friends and they really loved it. This is timely since I’m going to organize another wedding event and I will definitely include this in the list of menu.

  14. My aunt used to make this recipe for July 4th get-togethers all the time! I love these beans… I have this recipe hand-written out, but I’m going to pin it! Thank you!
