Uncle Mort's Baked Beans Bonanza

This recipe has been in the family for many years.

And, What's a family or neighborhood back yard get together without a big pot of Baked Beans to accompany the Burgers and Dogs and Chops and Steaks. Accompany with some homemade Potato Salad, and you have a true honest to goodness Back Yard Feast. And -- The Time Is Near. Hello Spring.

I sometimes leave them juicy and other times ladle off the juices and serve them dryer. Dry enough that you can slap some between two slices of bread for a sandwich.

True Boston Baked Beans are served pretty dry I believe.

Prep:

Cook:

2 Hr

Ingredients

1 can(s)
pork and beans or baked beans (allen's or bush's) # 10 size can
2 c
brown sugar
2/3 to 1 c
honey or dark molasses
3 Tbsp
yellow mustard french's
1/2 tsp
tabasco
1/4 tsp
salt and pepper each
3/4 lb
bacon cooked and cut in 2 inch lengths or crumpled
2 to 3 Tbsp
bacon grease
1 medium
onion diced coarse
3 tsp
worcestershire sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
The # 10 sized can is also referred to as the industrial sized can (104 oz. to 117 oz.) I at times make a half batch with two 28 oz. cans.
2
These can be made in an oven proof crock, a crock pot or a large frying pan. I most often use the Crock Pot.
3
Add beans and all remaining ingredients to pot and give a good thorough stir.
4
If using oven, bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. If using Crock Pot cook on high for 1 hour till bubbly, then reduce to Low or "Keep Warm". Stir occasionally. If using large frying pan low simmer and stir for about 40 minutes. All three methods work well.
5
If you prefer them dry, continue to ladle off the juices when they are nearing completion.
6
Invite the neighbors over and Enjoy. These freeze very well and are just as good three months later.
7
Note: I'm a low salt cook. I find the cooked bacon and grease supplies enough salt. You could add a little more if needed. I add Tabasco sauce until there is just a hint of "Heat".
