Baked Beans With Bacon
Enhance your canned baked beans with a healthy dose of bacon, bbq sauce, and hot sauce. I have used all kinds of beans, great northern and navy beans are my favorites for this recipe. The bbq sauce that I prefer is a sweet honey or smoked hickory.
2 (52 ounce) cans beans, drained
1 to 2 pounds bacon, fried crisp and drained
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup brown sugar
3 roma tomatoes, chopped
1 cup barbeque sauce (your choice)
1 large onion, diced
1 green pepper, chopped
Garlic powder, to taste
1/2 ounce liquid smoke (optional, but nice)
Hot sauce, if desired to taste
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and pour into large Dutch oven or roasting pan.
3. Bake for 2 to 3 hours, stirring every 30 minutes or as needed. Don't overcook. Best when cooled and reheated.
