1 (28 ounce) can
bacon, cut into small pieces
Definitely not low calorie, but this is a fabulous dish. I added chopped onion and a heaping tsp. of dry mustard. Everyone at the picnic raved about the flavor and I had several requests for the recipe. Thanks for sharing.
Way too sweet! I will however try it again and cut the sugar down a lot! Also, I'll cook the bacon and drain it first. It had a good 1/4 inch of grease on top which I drained before serving. 2 out of the 7 people I served it to loved it. Everyone else agreed it was way too sweet!
Huge hit at our party. We changed it to make 20 servings. Used the Bush's baked beans with brown sugar and bacon, so we didn't double the brown sugar and bacon,just the beans. Also added onion when making the bacon and 1 tsp dried mustard.
I made this recipe in a cast iron skillet. I used 3 strips of bacon, ¼ cup onion and ½ cup lightly packed brown sugar. I layered them in that order in the skillet and put over low heat. When all the sugar was melted I stirred the mixture and let it cook very slowly for a total of about 20 minutes. Then stir in the canned beans and 1 tsp. of dry mustard. The whole thing goes into the oven for 30 minutes. The onions weren't even detected by my onion hating daughter. Beware, this is very rich.
I know, I know. It's just baked beans and bacon, right? Wrong! It was DELICIOUS. The bacon sauteed in brown sugar and onions... it just worked so well and added more flavor than you could ever hope to get from a can. I made it for a party and it was a huge hit! I'm going to make this for myself quite often. Normally I'm not a baked bean person, but I couldn't get enough of these.
Awesome, easy, need I say more
Wow! So easy and yet so good - ya gotta love it when a few simple ingredients come together for something so tasty! This definitely is a favorite at every BBQ meal and this recipe has a wonderful flavor probably due in part to bacon (which makes just about anything taste better)! Other than adding a bit of molasses (something my Grandma Helen taught me) I wouldn't change a thing. This is a great way to take a regular 'ol can of baked beans and turn them into something special without a lot of effort!
GREAT twist to baked beans. Rachel Ray actually used this recipe (or one exactly like it) in one of her 30 min meal shows. We actually tried it from watching the show and although I have tried a lot of oustanding baked bean recipes, this one is the easiest but still has that wow factor. Adding some onions in (add them with the brown sugar - don't mix in the beans) is also a good optional item.
