1-1/2 lb. lean ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 can (lg.) baked beans (molasses style)
1 can (sm.) baked beans (molasses style)
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 bay leaf
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, or
to taste
Salt and pepper to taste


Brown first 4 ingredients together. Drain any fat if needed. Mix in remaining ingredients and cook on the stove top for 5 minutes to heat through. Transfer to a cassarole dish and bake at 350°F for about two hours, stirring every 20 minutes or so. Add a little water if it looks like its drying out. When done you want it to run a little, not just glop on the plate.
