This dish tastes great anytime but even more so sitting around a campfire
on a summer evening .... or at a picnic ... or by the lake.
A good beginning ... beef, celery and lots of onions.
A few more choice ingredients ... stir together and bake.
Serve with a crusty roll or spoon over a baked potato.
Add a salad and enjoy a full-of-meat baked bean dinner.
½ lb. ground beef
1½ cups finely chopped onion
¾ cup finely chopped celery
Cook and stir ground beef, onion and celery until meat is brown and
onion is tender. Drain off fat.
1 can (14oz.) molasses-style baked beans
¾ cup ketchup
1/3 cup beef broth
1½ tbsp. prepared mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
Combine beef mixture and remaining ingredients in Dutch oven or
casserole dish. Cover and bake in 375° oven for 45 to 55 minutes
or until hot and bubbly.
5 slices bacon
Fry bacon until crisp, drain on paper towel.
Crumble and sprinkle over beans before serving.
