Hook A Husband Beans: They’ll Help You Land Your Man!

These beans are truly inspiring. Now, I’m not promising that they will magically “land you a man” but they will put a smile on the people’s faces that you are feeding them too. Might I suggest you cook your love interest these beans on a first date? Perhaps it will compel him or her to ask you out on another. Food does amazing things to people’s emotions. If you don’t believe me just test the theory out for yourself. You are going to lOVE these beans 🙂

Check out what my friends over at Connor’s Cooking had to say about this amazing baked bean casserole recipe:

1986 was the first time I made this dish. I was a newly-wed and I was very eager to impress my in-laws! My father-in-law sat there and critiqued the dish, breaking down every ingredient…I was sweating bullets!! And then he walked up to me and told me “these are the best baked beans I have ever eaten!!” Since then I have been crowned the “Baked Bean Queen!” I even have people request them as a Christmas present, and every family function, I don’t even ask anymore…I just bake & take!! ENJOY!!

We are overjoyed that Connor’s Cooking decided to share this recipe with us. It tastes so stinkin’ good and is incredibly easy to throw together. Will you be making these beans anytime soon? If so, please leave me a message in the comments and let me know how they turn out! Is there anything you would change about this delicious recipe?



2 (28 ounces) can Bush’s original baked beans
1 large finely chopped sweet onion
1 large finely chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 pound ground beef
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
4 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 tablespoons hot sauce
6 slices bacon
1 package taco seasoning


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown beef. Add taco seasoning while browning beef. DO NOT add water. Drain beef and set aside. Combine beans, onions, peppers, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and hot sauce in a 16X10 casserole dish. Add seasoned beef to the bean casserole. Place bacon on top of beans. Cover dish with aluminum foil, leaving a corner folded back for venting. Bake for about 1 hour. Remove foil and continue baking approx. 30 minutes or until bacon is brown and excess liquid has been cooked out.



Quick Tip: I sometimes add a few drops of vanilla to my baked beans for an extra kick of sweet and savory flavoring.

Thank you to Connor’s Cooking for this marvelous recipe.
