BBQ Burgers & Beans

Affiliate Disclosure

Friday night is Fun Food Night at our house. No casseroles, very few vegetables, and no sitting at the table!

This is one of our favorites.

BBQ Burgers & BeansI usually make homemade hamburger buns (recipe coming soon eventually).  I didn’t start the dough in time the day I took this pic, so I had to get Joe to stop and get some rolls. They were huge! No one needs that much bread.

Of course you don’t have to make your own rolls. Maybe just buy smaller ones than this.

Burgers & Beans

The only down side is it takes 3 pans! But it’s worth it.

Start by shaping your burgers. I use a hamburger shaping tool from Tupperware.

Next, slice one whole onion and cook on low in a small skillet with a splash of oil.

While your grill is preheating (I use a cast iron grill pan from Cracker Barrel) cook 4 pieces of bacon in a large skillet.

Sprinkle the burgers with salt and pepper and put them into the hot grill pan.

Chop up half a green pepper and half an onion.

When the bacon is done, set it on a plate lined with a paper towel.

If there is a lot of bacon fat, drain some of it off. Leave just enough to lightly coat the pan.

Brown the onion and green pepper in the pan you used for the bacon.

Add the can of beans and a TBSP of brown sugar  to the pepper and onion mix.

You can either keep the strips of bacon to add to the burgers or chop them up and add them to the beans.

Top your burgers with cheese, browned onions, and barbecue sauce.

    Oh my gosh, this looks A-MA-ZING! We love burgers and they are on our menu at least once a week. I’ve heard of people making their own buns but I have yet to venture into that. I can’t wait to see your bun recipe. Also, I totally LOVE your grill and I’m so glad you shared where you got it because I now need to add that to my list of things to purchase. And bonus…I get to go to cracker barrel!!! Yay!! The nearest one is about 45 minutes to an hour drive away so it’s not a place I get to experience very often, but oh my….it’s definitely a favorite of mine.

      Hey Rosann,
      I was thinking it would take a while to get that recipe up because I don’t plan to make the for a while, but I just realized I took pics the last time I made them. So, what’s stopping me! I’ll try to get it published in the next week or so. But in the mean time you just use your favorite dinner roll recipe and make round, sort of flat disks instead of rolls.
      Enjoy your trip to Cracker Barrel!
