pioneer woman: burger bar & baked beans

Since PW cooks for an army, I halved both the burger and the baked bean recipes. Her burger recipe is super simple, only a few ingredients, including heavy cream which is the secret to these juicy burgers!



BURGERS

2 - 2-1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/4 cup heavy cream
1-2 T. Worcestershire sauce
2-3 dashes hot sauce
sat & pepper - to taste

MY FIXINS' BAR
sauted' onions
raw onions
tomato 
cheese
pickles
relish
mayo
ketchup
mustard
bacon
avocado

other suggestions:
feta
arugula
bbq sauce
sauted' mushrooms
jarred sliced jalapenos


I topped my burger with mayo, sauted' onions, and avocado slices. YUMMMM!


BAKED BEANS



The linked recipe does not have quite the same recipe as the one from the cookbook.
Also, I halved the recipe (amounts below) --

6 slices bacon
1 onion - diced
1/2 red bell pepper - diced
1/2 yellow bell pepper - diced
1/2 green bell pepper - diced
4 (11 oz.) cans pork & beans
1/4 cup bbq sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T. apple cider vinegar
dash red pepper flakes
1 T. mustard

Cut 3 slices bacon in pieces and fry in pan with onion for 3-4 minutes.
Add peppers and stir around and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add beans, bbq sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, pepper flakes, and mustard.
Stir and cook until hot and bubbly.
Pour into a 13x9 baking dish and top with remaining bacon strips.
Bake for 1-1/2 - 2 hours in a 325 degree oven until thick and bubbly.


These are seriously THE BEST baked beans I've ever eaten.....and our burgers weren't bad either!!
