Super Good Baked Beans
So, here goes!
First cook up some good old bacon (sorry I don't have a picture of the bacon cooking) I have decided that bacon is one of those things that I really never want to have to give up. I love everything about bacon. Anyway, cook up your bacon til crispy and then crumble into piece.
Mix together and pour into a casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350* until they are hot and bubbly. Serve. These are so good.
If you like the flavor of these, here is a little secret. You can make just the sauce without the beans, onion, pepper and bacon and use it as BBQ sauce with pulled pork. I do it all the time and my family loves it. I serve it warm and it is so so so good!!!
Cook 6 slices of bacon until crispy (more if you like :)) crumble when cooled
2 cans pork and beans, drained
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 Tbls. chopped green pepper
2 Tbls. bacon grease
Saute until onion starts to look translucent. Add:
1/8 cup +1 Tbls. dark molasses
3/4 c ketchup
2 Tbls. Worchestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke (more if you like them a little more smokey)
1/2 tsp. Franks Red Hot or your favorite hot sauce (opt)
Mix all together and add the crumbled bacon. Pour into a sprayed (for easier clean up) casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake at 350* until bubbly and hot. Serve!
So I told you there is a short cut version too. So here goes! Again, remember I don't measure! This is usually how I roll.
I use the 2 cans of pork and beans or more if I'm going for a larger crowd. I do use the bacon and I do saute the onion and green pepper in the bacon grease. Then I start dumping in ketchup, hickory flavored bbq sauce, a splash of worchestershire sauce, some brown sugar to taste-(and I do taste and add more until I like the flavor) and the liquid smoke. It works. It's yummy and there you go. I maybe even like the throw together a little more. It's almost the same amount of work but it's pretty dang good too! Good Luck!!!!
