Beale Street Baked Beans are famous in Memphis, TN, where folks serve them as a BBQ side AND as a party dip with corn chips!
This recipe for Beale Street Baked Beans is published in one of my favorite cookbooks, Heart & Soul, a Junior League of Memphis cookbook published in 1992. From these beans to Boursin Potato Gratin to JalapeÃ±o Cheese Grits and more, I’ve never made anything from Heart & Soul that wasn’t outstanding.
Named after the famous street in Memphis, Beale Street Baked Beans are simply outstanding. In addition to ground beef, they are baked in a homemade sauce that is sweet, spicy, peppery, tangy and savory. In Memphis, Beale Street Baked Beans are often served as a dip with corn chips.
Make ahead: These beans can be made up to the point of baking and kept in the fridge a day or two before you plan to serve. Simply bring to room temp for 30 minutes, bake, and keep warm until serving.
