I’ve saved this recipe for ten years. It takes me back to a sunny Easter Sunday lunch surrounded by friends and church family on a green hillside in California. I remember kids running around, games of horseshoes, and these amazing baked beans. I immediately requested the recipe and the I’ve never met a pot of beans since that I liked better than these.
You’ll be excited to hear that this dish can be made on the stovetop, in the oven, or in the crockpot. It makes a nice big batch for a crowd and is easily doubled. It’s rustic and satisfying with big butter beans mixed with smoky bacon, hearty ground beef, and rich molasses. I hope you’ll make your own memories with this recipe.
