Baked Beans


  • 3 large onions, chopped
  • 2 lbs. ground meat (pork or beef)
  • 1 gallon pork and beans
  • 1 cup catchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 Tbs. mustard
  • red and black pepper to taste
    Cook meat and onions for 20 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bake for 1 hour at 375°F. This recipe is designed to feed several folks at a time. We used it in restaurants, for re-unions, parties, fund-raisers, etc.  

    Tip: if you want to give these beans a smokey flavor, add a couple tablespoons of Colgin liquid smoke. Enjoy!

    1. When I start looking up recipes online I usually start with this site. After looking at the other most popular sites I always and I do mean always come back to here to get my recipes that I cook. And like the one above everyone that eats it raves about it. Your recipes are the best I have cooked. And Im not a good cook but they always turn out great. To the above recipe I sometimes add smoked sausage also. Thanks for all the great recipes. I don't even remember how I found your site but it is the only website I have bookmarked to come back to every time. Thanks.
