Serves | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 1 hour


1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped (I used a yellow bell pepper since I don't really like green ones)
Oil to saute
1 lb ground chuck (if you use a fattier ground beef, you'll need to drain it)
1 - 28 oz can of baked beans (the recipe called for 2-15oz cans of pork and beans)
1/2 cup Golden Eagle Syrup (we don't have that in So Cal so I used 2 parts corn syrup to 1 part molasses as suggested somewhere)
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 350'

In a small amount of oil sauté onion and bell pepper until tender.

Add ground beef and brown.

In a 13x9 baking dish, combine the remaining ingredients. Mix meat mixture into the beans.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.

I found my grandmothers recipe for baked beans on the internet. My cousin had shared it with her mother in-law who in turn had shared it with a local newspaper, who in turn had published it on their newspaper blog.
