Coffee Baked Beans

One morning we had a little coffee left in our coffee pot and I was planning to make baked beans for dinner. I thought, why waste the coffee? So I just tweaked my baked bean recipe a bit and came up with this combination. I paired it with roasted Brussels sprouts and seared salmon. It was a huge hit with my whole family!

Looking for a new baked beans recipe for the summer? These baked beans are really simple to make, perfectly baked and have the right balance of flavors. They filled the Test Kitchen with the wonderful aroma that reminded us of a summer cookout. The bacon not only adds texture but a savoriness that mixes with the sweet. Since these beans are cooked uncovered, everything gets caramelized and the beans are not mush. The quantity is perfect if you're serving a family of four. If preparing for a cookout, or you have hungry teenagers in the house, double the recipe.

Note: We took the beans out of the oven 15 minutes before the timer went off because we noticed they were burning around the edges. Since every oven is different, we'd recommend checking your beans at an hour and a half. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
