A Twist on Baked Beans

Even if you are not a baked bean fan, or a fan of beans period, you will be after you try these...

This recipe serves 6 to 8.

4 Cans Pork and Beans - use your favorite brand and flavor - mine are Libby's in Molasses
1 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup favorite mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp Season Salt
Pinch of Kosher Salt
Pinch of ground black pepper

1/2 Pound bacon
1/2 Red onion - chopped or diced depending on your preference - I chop
1 Clove Garlic - fine chop


Cut bacon into matchsticks cook until begins to turn translucent.  Add the onion and garlic and cook until bacon just starts to crisp up, not all the way.

Place beans into a baking dish.  Add the the rest of the ingredients and mix to blend everything.  Add the bacon, onion and garlic right from the pan.  I add in the fat from the pan sometimes for that extra flavor.  Blend everything well.  Cover with foil and place in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.  Uncover and continue baking for another 30 minutes.  Remove and serve.
