How to Make Shelias, Family Famous Baked Beans


  1. In a 10 in. skillet, over medium heat fry 3 pieces of bacon till crispy, set aside the other 3 for the top. Take out and drain , save grease, in same pan medium heat, sauté onion and green pepper in the bacon grease ( I use a non- stick skillet, not much grease, you may have to add a little oil or butter ) sprinkle a little salt and pepper over the top when almost done. when done place in a medium size bowl , set aside - in same skillet , crumble in ground beef, place skillet over med. high heat , breaking up and stirring meat till no longer pink and slightly browned, sprinkling salt and pepper over the top when almost done. drain and set-aside.
  2. spray baking dish with cooking spray, pour in all the pork and beans . set-aside, In the medium bowl with the onions and green pepper add the brown sugar, mustard, A-1, ketchup and molasses, stir all this togeather until well mixed, pour over the beans already in the baking dish and stir into the beans until well mixed. place the remaining , uncooked 3 strips of bacon across the top of the beans and cover and seal with heavy duty Alumn. foil . place in 425 pre-heated oven and bake for 60 minutes.
  3. remove Beans from oven, carefully remove foil. and remove bacon from top, stir beans, crumble the 3 fried bacon across the top ( note, the bacon that was cooked only with the beans I discard or stick in the microwave to finish cooking , not good as is. ) This will be full to the top, if you need to transport it , best to put into 2 dishes . all ovens seem to cook different, this was the best temp for me.
