I am not a fan of canned baked beans but my husband is. In fact, he will eat just about anything put in front of him. One day I decided to spice up the store bought ones and the result was delicious. In fact, it is one of my husband's favorite dishes. The next time I make them I will take a photo! Note: you can more or less adjust the ingredients to your liking.

  2. Cook chopped onion and green pepper in bacon grease until translucent; about five minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, put beans in a mixing bowl and crumble bacon; add to beans. Add cooked onion and green pepper and stir to combine all. Stir in brown sugar and mustard; mix well.
  4. Transfer beans to a 2-quart casserole dish and top with reserved bacon slices. Heat in 350 degree oven until bubbly; about 30 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, and enjoy.
