Baked Beans with Ground Beef

Baked Beans with Ground Beef

Today's recipe, a repeat from 2008, is my most-viewed post ever. It's one of the simplest to make, too, only now I prefer to use homemade beans, not canned.

It was introduced to my family by my Aunt Jane, who often made it on cold winter nights. I've made it a few times, especially when I've also got the wherewithal to make cornbread which along with cole slaw. An apple crisp makes the perfect dessert!

The measurements of the ingredients may certainly vary, according to taste. When I make this, I use:
  • 2 medium cans of baked beans with onions
  • 1/2 pound ground beef, browned
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
I combined all the ingredients and baked in a preheated, 350-degree oven for about 45 minutes.

Some people call this dish, "Yakimi," but I could not find any reference to that on the Internet. Here in Wisconsin, you are likely to find it at family picnics and church suppers.
