The warm weather means the grills coming out and BBQ's popping up all over the place. It also means Baked Beans which I just love, but have to really pace myself with these cause I can wolf down the whole pan by myself.
I've tried a few different versions but I still think that Prudence Pennywise's recipe is the best one and the one the family and I enjoy the most.
Brown Sugar and Bacon Baked Beans
Credit: Prudence Pennywise
1/2 to 1 lb bacon, chopped
1 large onion, minced
3 (15 ounce cans) pinto beans, drained
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons mustard (I've used yellow or dijon with good results)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350. In a large skillet, fry bacon until almost crisp.
Pour off most of the fat. Add onion in with the bacon and continue to fry for five minutes.
Add in all ingredients and mix well.
Pour into 2 quart casserole or 9 by 13. Bake, covered with lid or foil for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 30 minutes longer.
