My recipe for cowboy style baked beans with ground beef and bacon is full of love. ❤️

What exactly makes something “cowboy style”? Well cowboy style means that meat is added to the beans (there’s much more history behind this but chile google it if you want more info lol).

These baked beans are full of flavor and sure to be a crowd favorite. My baked beans recipe makes a very large amount- so it’s perfect for parties and get togethers. As a heads up, these baked beans are made with ground beef and bacon, but feel free to change up the meats if you’d like (maybe you want all ground beef or all bacon, it’s your world so change it up as needed)
