The Best Baked Beans

Updated on May 5, 2009

Simple and Delicious!

These beans have been in our family for the longest time. Being adopted out I didnt get to experience all the recipes in our family until I was old enough and knew enough to be invited to some of the family gatherings. I went mostly because of all the new foods I would get to try and get some of the recipes to share at my own family gatherings. Most of the time these beans would be some of the first things to go onto everyones plates and would be the first to be gone. I would usually only get to sample them as I made them and when I would get a chance to sit down I wouldnt have any left to even put on my own plate. I think they are very simuliar to Bush's Beans but in my opionion they taste better because of all the work that goes into them and they are of course fresh made and not have been sitting in a can for god knows how long. I hope you can enjoy them just as much. Thanks


For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:

3 Cans Of Pork and Beans Dumped into a large pot.

1 pound of Hickory Smoked Bacon.

2 Large Vidalia Onions

1 Bottle of mustard

1 Bottle of Ketchup

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder

Brown Sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees for the beans.


The directions are pretty simple and straight forward.

Put the cans of beans in a large pot to bring to a boil. In the pot you are going to add the diced up onions and some garlic powder. I dont know about how much cause I think garlic is something you have to have a certain taste for. I dont like much garlic myself but my husband loves it. I would personally use like 1/2 teaspoon but some people might use double that amount. Just add to taste. The same applies with the onion powder. I use around a teaspoon of onion powder just becuase I love onion powder and use it in just about anything I make.

You will want to have your bacon cooked so that is just about done. Pork is usually something that you want to make sure is cooked all the way but remember while it is being heated in the oven it will continue to cook completely. You dont want to have it to crunch so I just cook it til the fat isnt as rubbery.  Then you will add the strips to the pot of beans and garlic powder and onion powder. You will Need to put in around 2 teaspoons of mustard. I sometimes add a touch of ketchup. My hubby adds a little of BBQ sauce to it when he cooks the beans but only because he loves BBQ sauce and will put it on everything if he could. You will also need to have around a cup of brown sugar depending on how sweet you like your beans. I like mine real sweet so thats why I use quite a bit.  You will want to make sure you keep stirring the beans so that they dont stick to the bottom of the pan and will want to heat thoroughly. I then add them to a pan to be put into the oven to heat and keep warm while I prepare everything else. I hope you like this recipe and will use it often. As this is a good source of fiber for your daily diet.
