How to Make 3-Bean Baked Beans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 9 casserole dish or a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. I spray with PAM.
  2. Cook sausage and onion in a pan over medium heat until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain and stir in remaining ingredients except for bacon.
  3. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and top with sliced bacon strips.
  4. Bake uncovered on middle rack for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, until bubbly and bacon is browned.
