Great Baked Beans

Don't Knock 'emTill You've Tried 'Em!

Rock your Holiday Barbeque with these GREAT BEANS!  Since having these the first time, I won't eat regular beans any more. They are just that good!  Why not try this awesome recipe?

Time from start to finish: 1 hour. Super Easy, Super Crowd Pleasing

What you'll need:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Yes, canned pineapple is also OK, but I'm all into fresh pineapple these days,

Dice several slices of bacon along with 1/2 large white onion.

Saute on medium heat for approx. 10 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent,

and the bacon is well done and beginning to brown,

Drain the grease (I use low sodium) or (less fat) bacon.

Add the following:

1 large can of baked beans (I use Bush beans)
Drain the beans by pouring the sauce that comes up when you open the can.
Don't drain all the juice unless you want dry beans

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
3 - 4 tablespoon ketchup
2 - 3 tablespoons of molasses (can sub brown sugar)
1/4 finely diced pineapple, squeezing some juice into mixture (yum)

Place into preheated oven covered with aluminum foil, and bake for

30 - 45 minutes.

During the last 10 minutes of baking, remove the foil and stir beans,
For a nice glazed dish, continue baking uncovered and serve immediately.

This dish has a high carb content of a million or more carbs so beware.

But it is really delish!


Happy Memorial Day
