My Moms Baked Beans

1/2 lb bacon
2 lbs ground beef
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
2 beef bouillon cubes
2/3 cup water boiling
1 1/2 cloves garlic minced
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 (28 ounce) cans baked beans with molasses

1.In a Dutch oven or other large, heavy, oven proof pot fry bacon until crisp and set aside.
2.In the same pan, cook ground beef, onion and celery until meat in brown and the onion and celery are tender.
3.Meanwhile, dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water.
4.Add bouillon to meat mixture with the remaining ingredients including bacon and mix well. 
These are the bean flavors that I use.
 5.Cover and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes in a 375 degree oven until hot and bubbly.
*Top with some sour cream
This makes a lot of beans. I usually freeze the extras in quart size freezer bags so that they are easy to heat up just enough for meals.

* I love these beans they are the baked beans that my mom has made my whole life and I have yet to find another recipe for beans that I like as much. Try them out I promise that you will love them to. Of course I give these a 5 I make them all the time :)
