Notes

Sometimes I will swap out bacon for pulled pork or brisket but bacon is my preferred meat. Sometimes I’ll add ground beef as well,  it’s really versatile! I don’t add additional brown sugar bc I feel it adds too much sweetness with the apple pie filling as well. I like to cut up the apples into smaller pieces. You don’t have to use the “Fireshire” sauce if you can’t find it but it’s so good! I would prob sub A1 if you don’t use the W sauce.  These can be made in the oven but the hint of smoke adds so much flavor!

      I have never heard of apples with baked beans. I was worried about my family thinking it was weird. Did your family love this recipe?

        It sounds weird but I’ve yet to meet someone who didn’t absolutely love it!

          The rub goes in the beans?

            I season ground beef if using with the rub and also in the beans.

          How many apples? I don’t see them in the ingredients but it says cut apples into small pieces in the directions.

            It’s apple pie filling, 2 cans.

            I usually use sausage in my baked beans. How do you thank that would work

          • Matt Ramsey

            That works!

      Anything you prefer, I sometimes switch it up. Last time I made them I used RecTeq Honey Rib Rub.

    You said you always use bacon and the recipe says 2 pounds. So if I wanna add ground beef, brisket, or pulled pork, how much do you add? And then do you decrease the amount of bacon?

      Always same amount of bacon but if I add the other meats it’s usually same amount as bacon. Makes it extra hearty!

    The recipe I see doesn’t say anything about ground beef?

      I vary the meats but always include bacon.

    Hello! I’ve made this twice!
    I liked it with the original style beans better but that’s my preference.
    I doubled the recipe but only used 4 cans of apple pie filling to 6 cans of beans and I thought it was the most amazing bean recipe I’ve ever had!
    You’re a genius. The yellow mustard and bbq sauce are terrific additions!
    Wish I could add a photo

“Trashed” Wings

"Trashed Wings" originated in St. Louis, MO and I had them for the first time last summer. Made them at home less than a week after that and now they are a semi regular menu item around our house. They are easy to make, here is how you do it! Note: They are called "trashed" wings bc your oil will be trashed after making them due to cooking the already dipped in buffalo sauce.
