Baked Bean and Beef Casserole

Baked beans and beef casserole is super easy to put together and is a good weeknight dinner. Bacon is cooked together with chopped onions and then hamburger is added. Canned baked beans along with seasonings are stirred in and then it is baked in a casserole. It was a popular recipe in the 70s and 80s.

The recipe will serve 6.

Baked Bean and Beef Casserole


  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 lb. of hamburger or other ground meat
  • 2 1 lb. cans of baked beans
  • ½ cup of dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup of ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons of dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce


Heat the oven to 375 degrees F and grease or spray a 1 qt. casserole.

Cut the bacon slices into ½ inch pieces. Cook the bacon and the onion in a large frying pan until the onions are almost done. Drain and stir in the hamburger or ground meat. Cook until the meat is done and then stir in the rest of the ingredients. Pour the mixture into a 2 qt. casserole.  Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes. Be sure to cool before serving. Serve with a salad and dessert.


You could leave the bacon out but it will not taste the same.

Homemade beans can be used. Add some tomato juice if you have it.

Hot dogs or smoked sausages can be sliced and used instead of ground meat.
