As simple as this is, it gives baked beans a whole new twist, and is a really good sidedish. My Grandmother would be proud to share this with everyone.


  • Really simple-
  • Any kind of baked canned beans.
  • Ground round(amount to match quantity you want of beans).
  • Dash - Ketchup.
  • Dash - Brown sugar.
  • Dash- Lemon juice.
  • 1 small onion(garlic-?).
  • Salt, pepper.
  • Amounts will vary according to your taste and quantity. Play around with it.


This is just any variation of your favorite baked beans. First, cook(fry) the ground round, chopped onion, & spices in large pot, drain off fat. Add the beans, a little ketchup & lemon juice, brown sugar, and heat together until hot. Bake uncovered if prefered.
