Baked Beans is probably one of the first things I learned to cook as a teenager. We called them "baked" even though this version is cooked on the stovetop. It has become my little Grandson's favorite recipe. He tells me, "Granny, you're the cooker." I'll take that as a compliment any day.

How to Make Plain 'ol Baked Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook turkey strips in a sauté pan large enough accommodate your two cans of beans and the rest of the ingredients. Before cooking strips, spray pan with Pam. When strips are done, remove them from skillet and set aside.
  2. Add baked beans to pan you cooked strips in. Using kitchen shears or a knife cut up the turkey bacon and add to the beans. Or you can crumble it up by hand.
  3. Add all the other ingredients to the pot. Bring to a simmer on low heat, being careful to stir often to prevent sticking. Simmer on low for 15 minutes. Baked beans can stick easily so stir frequently.
  4. To change the recipe up and make it what we call "Beanie Wienies" just add already cooked, sliced wieners at the beginning when you add all your ingredients.

    If you are cooking for a crowd this recipe can be doubled or more. Sometimes when cooking a large quantity you may prefer to cook them in an oven instead of the stovetop. Just bake covered at 350 degrees for about an hour. Stir about 2 to 3 times while baking.
