Cook:

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 1-pound (or 15-1/2 ounce) cans pork and beans
1 pound bacon
1/2 cup chopped onions
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons catsup
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Drain the liquid from the beans. Remove and discard that token scrap of pork fat (if that's what it really is) they put in each can. Put the beans in a 2-quart baking dish.
2
Fry the bacon, remove it from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Sauté the onion in the bacon drippings until it is transparent. Remove onion with a slotted spoon and add to beans.
3
In a small bowl, blend the brown sugar, molasses, catsup and dried mustard.
4
Break or tear the bacon into 1-inch pieces and add to beans. Add the brown sugar mixture, and stir gently until all ingredients are incorporated.
5
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring once.
