  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Arrange the English muffin halves on a baking sheet. Place an equal amount of baked beans on each muffin half. Layer beans with onion, tomato, cheese, and bacon.
  3. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Set oven to broil, and continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes, until bacon is crisp. Watch constantly during broiling to make sure bacon does not burn. Serve immediately.

If I could give this more than 5 stars I would! I never thought something so simple would be so yummy. I made as is with one minor change. I used precooked bacon that way there was less grease and the bacon was crispy. Thanks for the great recipe. It's a definite keeper in my house.

This was a good way to use up left-over baked beans. My 2 year old loved it!

How creative are you? I came across this recipe the other day and it sounded delicious---so I ran to the market and gathered the necessary ingredients. Might I say, this was to die for!!! Truly one of my new favorites, completley easy--and just mouth-watering. I wouldn't revise the recipe--perfect as is. Thank you so much! ~drool

Absolutely awesome!! This was SO good! The only change I made was to use my beloved regular Heinz Baked Beans (I can't stand sweet baked beans). I don't know if it was just me piling the toppings on too high, but I had to eat it with a knife and fork. Anyway, thanks so much for this simple yet delicious recipe!

Michelle, we too have been eating this for years and it truly is surprisingly good! The only thing my mother taught me to do is precook my bacon and once the muffins come out of the oven just criss cross it on top.

Soo good. My husband looked at me like I was a nutbag when I handed him a plate of this for lunch then came back and told me to make them for dinner, lol. I layered mine a bit different cheese first, then beans, pre cooked bacon, onion, then tomato. I also didn't bake mine because the oven was already full. I will be making these again for a quick yummy lunch.

This was definitely a change of pace for us. My husband is watching his cholesterol and really has been missing bacon and cheese. It was a nice touch to add to the dish while still keeping that cholesterol level low. I made them as open-faced sandwiches using whole wheat muffins. Next time I will probably not use maple flavored beans as this was the only detraction for him from the meal.
