How To Make doreen's baked beans

  • 1
    I bake my bacon in the oven. I place it on a foil covered pizza tray which has a slight lip on it so the grease doesn't drip onto my over floor. I bake it at 375 until it looks crispy, approx.35 minutes or so. ( Leave your oven on after you bake your bacon so it's preheated to cook your beans ). Then I save the bacon fat and lay the bacon on papertowel to soak up any other grease.

    Empty the entire two cans of beans into a large crock, mix in all other ingredients except the two uncooked pieces of bacon in with the beans. Place the two uncooked pieces of bacon on top of the beans.
