My family and friends will ask me to bring my baked beans to our get-togethers. I also like to make them for our backyard cookouts and holidays.

The barbecue sauce, ketchup, and garlic powder give these baked beans great flavor. Or, it could be the bacon on top ... bacon makes everything better! A perfect addition to your next cookout.

How To Make baked beans with bacon

Test Kitchen Tips
To get crispier bacon, place the beans under your broiler for 3-4 more minutes. Just keep your eye on the beans so the bacon doesn't burn.
  • Mixing together all of the ingredients except the bacon.
    Place your beans in a bowl. Add chopped onions, brown sugar, ketchup, barbecue sauce, honey, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and garlic. Mix well.
  • Beans poured into a baking dish with bacon laid on top.
    Next, add your ingredients to your baking dish. Lay the uncooked bacon across the top of the beans.
  • Baking the beans in the oven.
    Bake at 350 F for 35-40 minutes until beans are bubbling and bacon is done.
