Baked Beans


Baked Beans have been a staple at our family functions since I was a kid! My Grandmother wasn’t a great cook so she brought these to every function we had. She did have these cooked perfectly every time. I always wanted to eat the bacon laying on the top and today I still do! I no longer place the uncooked bacon on top of the Baked Beans though. Now I cook the bacon, break it into small pieces and mix it in with the beans before I bake it. Anybody else like to eat the leftover Baked Beans cold the next day?






Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix all of the ingredients.



Pour into an 8” square baking dish.

Bake for 45  minutes.

  2. This is actually how I make mine! Most people just think you get ’em out of the can, warm ’em and they’re done, but they would be wrong!
