Bean & Bun ~ This Hearty Recipe Is Sure To Be A Family Pleaser!

This winter has been a brutal one. We were hit with a Polar Vortex last week and are currently experiencing a snow storm with more than ten inches of snow forecasted to pile up. On a night like this, I crave warm, comfort food. Bean & Bun is just the ticket. Never heard of Bean & Bun before? Neither had I – until I met my husband. It’s a favorite recipe his mom made him and she passed it on to me. Now, I’m happy to share it with you!


  • 1 pound ground hamburger
  • 16 oz can of Baked Beans (I used about half of a 28 ounce can, since that’s what I had)
  • 1/2 cup Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Onion
  • 1 Can of Biscuits (the regular/small ones (10 in a can), not the big/grand ones)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese (My MIL uses cheddar… I use Colby Jack… it’s really whatever you prefer)
    First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Then, on the stovetop, brown the hamburger & drain the grease.

Next, turn the heat to low, add the beans, barbecue sauce, brown sugar and minced onions to the browned hamburger.

Stir the browned hamburger, beans, minced onions, brown sugar, and barbecue sauce to combine.

Pour the hamburger and bean mixture into a circular 2 quart casserole dish. Add the biscuits on top. (Don’t mind the finger pokes in each of my biscuits, my daughter was ‘touch counting’ them and her touches turned into deep pokes, ha!)

Next, Add the shredded cheese on top of the biscuits.

Finally, place the dish in the preheated 375 degree oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes or until brown.

Ta Da! Your Bean & Bun is done! Super easy & really yummy!

I hope you and your family enjoy Bean & Bun as much as my family does. Let me know in the comments if you give it a try!

    This looks so comfy and soul soothing. I,too, have never heard of bean and bun but I think I would like this recipe, as it uses ingredients that I would already have on hand.

    I have never heard of beans and bun before either, this is sure to be a family pleaser. I don’t think there will be any leftovers.

    I do love your easy , tasty looking recipe here, I make something similar to this dish, But I only add the shredded cheese on top of the bean and hamburger , or often turkey ground in my case, and then the buns or if you have regular breading, that’ll work also, love this , Make extra because its delicious!

    I have never tried a recipe that uses baked beans. But I love baked beans! I can’t wait to try it. Looks easy to make too when we have busy nights.

    What a great idea for a quick dinner! I wouldn’t have thought of using biscuits like this but looks yummy.

    This looks like the ultimate in comfort food. I am always trying to find new ground beef recipes, and we have never tried anything like this before. I will make it for my family soon. My kids are going to love it because it has beans.
