  • Baked Bean Casserole

    I just tried today and it is very good and easy.

    1 # ground chuck
    4 cans (16oz) Bush's Baked Beans
    1 T. liquid smoke
    1 med. onion, diced
    2 T. worcestershire sauce
    1 cup bbq sauce
    3/4 c. sorghum molasses (I couldn't find in the grocery so I used syrup)
    1 green pepper, diced

    Brown beef with onion and green pepper, and drain. Put beef mixture into casserole dish ( I used 9X13). Add liquid smoke, molasses and bbq sauce and worcestershire sauce. Punch holes in the lids of the cans of beans and drain the juice out of the beans. Pour beans into casserole dish and mix. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour with the lid off. ENJOY!

    Hi Denise - did you serve this as your main entree? What else did you serve it with. Sounds good.

        this is similar to the recipe made on yesterday's Down Home with the Neeleys. Apparrently you can use any kind of meat. Yesterday, they used shredded pork.

          Do You Think This Could Be Done In A Crockpot?

            sure, SHEL! I would brown you meat of choice first. On the Neeleys show, they sauted the pepper and onion and then dumped everything together. They used a red bell pepper, but I doubt that it matters.

              following is The Neely's recipe

              1 tablespoon olive oil
              1 red bell pepper, chopped
              1/2 onion, chopped
              2 cloves garlic, chopped
              2 (28-ounce) cans baked beans
              1/2 cup brown sugar
              1/3 cup Neelys BBQ seasoning, recipe follows
              1/4 cup molasses
              1 cup Neelys BBQ sauce, recipe follows
              3/4 cup chopped pork or beef brisket

              Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
              In a large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Saute the red pepper, onion and garlic until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the baked beans and remaining ingredients and bring to a low simmer. Cover the beans and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 45 minutes.

              Neelys BBQ Seasoning:
              1 1/2 cups paprika
              3/4 cup sugar
              3 3/4 tablespoons onion powder

              Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir until combined. Keep in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
              Neelys BBQ Sauce

              2 cups ketchup
              1 cup water
              1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
              5 tablespoons light brown sugar
              5 tablespoons sugar
              1/2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
              1/2 tablespoon onion powder
              1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
              1 tablespoon lemon juice
              1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

              In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for 1 hour 15 minutes.
              Yield: 3 1/2 cups

                I've had this recipe on the brain since I first read it! Just got all the ingredients! Love baked beans! We'll make it as a main dish w/ some kind of meat in it.

                  Ro-Ro-I made this last Sunday and did serve it as the main dish and also made Paula Deen's Squash Casserole. It was the first time that I had made either one. I took to my Mom's and everyone loved both. Shel-I guess you could-but not sure if the beans would get too mushy??

                    1/2 lb. bacon

                    1 lb. ground beef

                    3/4 cup brown sugar

                    3/4 cup catsup

                    2 large onions, chopped

                    2 cans kidney beans, drained

                    2 cans butter beans, drained

                    1 can lima beans, drained

                    1 large can (28 oz size) Bushes beans (undrained)

                    1/4 cup vinegar

                    2 tsp. dry mustard

                    1 tsp. garlic powder

                    hot sausage (if desired)

                    Brown bacon, drain off fat.

                    Brown onions and beef together.

                    Mix all ingredients in a large baking dish.

                    Bake 2 hours at 325 degrees.

                    This is a wonderful tasting casserole... great for parties and pot luck suppers! Used as a side dish, it can feed up to 20 people!
