  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Cut bacon into bite-sized pieces and set aside.
  3. Combine the baked beans, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, mustard, and onions in a 2-quart casserole dish. Stir in 2/3 of the cooked bacon and 1/4 of the brown sugar until evenly mixed. Cover the bean mixture with the remaining bacon, and sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbly, about 45 minutes.

Used this as a base recipe and really enjoyed it. I was asked to make 20 servings of baked beans for a child's party. I used 2 (55 oz each) cans and 1 (28 oz) can of Bush's Original baked beans, 4 packages of Oscar Meyer bacon crumbles (the ones in the bag near the croutons, salad dressing, etc.), 1 large onion (minced fine), 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar (which was plenty), 3 1/2 Tbsp of ketchup, 1 1/2 Tbsp of mustard, 1 3/4 Tbsp of Worcestershire and added 1 1/2 - 2 tsps. of Liquid Smoke along with 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tsp of black pepper. Cooked in the slow cooker on low for 4 1/2 hours then switched to warm to keep them hot for the party. Everyone loved them. I will definitely make these again for family gatherings!

I thought these tasted pretty good, but very sweet. I even used two cans of baked beans and didn't double the sugar and they were still too sweet. I used store brand baked beans and I do not recommend doing that as they were very runny right from the beginning, which made for runny finished beans. I think I would use this recipe as a base next time to make baked beans to suit my personal taste

DELICIOUS recipe. I double the recipe to make it a main dish and it was a hit. There was only 1/4 of the casserole left over. I added more ketchup & mustard to make it more moist. I used hamburger instead of bacon. I didn't get to use Worcestershire sauce, because I did not have any. That didn't matter to the family. I topped it off w/ cornbread batter on top of the casserole the last 15 minutes and baked some more until cornbread was done. I wanted to use Pillsbury Biscuits, but didn't have any :-) Great recipe and thanks for sharing. It was nice having something new at the table.

Excellent baked beans. I made bbq ribs, mashed potatoes and these beans. The beans were everyone's favorite. I didn't measure anything, but otherwise didn't make any changes to the recipe 7/2/15 update: I have been making this for parties on Memorial Day, 4th of July, etc. for several years now. I love the recipe as-is, but have found that adding some cooked ground beef adds an excellent twist. I discovered this one year when I had too many burger patties. I just grilled a couple of the extras and through it in the beans with the bacon. Very tasty!

I give this 5 starts b/c it's delicious! Even when I accidentally put 1 tablespoon of mustard in instead of teaspoon and no bacon b/c I didn't have any. It is very, very tasty! I say try it, next time I will add the bacon.

So easy, so good! I only used 3 slices of bacon and it was amazing. Thanks for a great and easy recipe.

This was great! Tasted yummy and pretty easy to make even for me. I wouldn't change a thing. It did seem like a lot of work for what you can buy in the store, but I think it tasted a bit better than the store. Oh and I used turkey bacon. Just as good.
