Yummy Baked Beans is an old family favorite. It has been baked and served in our family since I was a little girl. And it’s still one of my favorite side dishes!
Sweet and saucy with thick pieces of bacon. It will make your mouth water as it slowly bakes in the oven.
Ingredients for Yummy Baked Beans
This baked bean recipe is so simple to make. Most people should have everything they need in their pantry to prepare this dish. You’ll need the following items:
- 2 cans of pork and beans. (Sometimes I will substitute pinto beans. If you do that, do not drain the beans.)
- sweet onion
- brown sugar (light or dark)
- yellow mustard
- salt and pepper
Preparing Your Baked Beans
Pour the beans into a medium bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients, except for the bacon.
Place the mixture into a greased oblong baking dish. I like using a glass or ceramic baking dish for easier clean-up. Plus, if you have a pretty dish, it makes a nice serving bowl for the table.
When it comes to the bacon, some of my family simply lay uncooked bacon strips on top of the beans to cook in the oven. I like to give my bacon a head-start by cooking it in a skillet for a few minutes. Not completely, but enough that it has a nice browning to it. Then lay the strips of bacon on top of the beans. Or if you prefer, dice the bacon into bite-size pieces. Either way is fine.
Bake the beans in a 325 degree oven for at least 2 hours until the sauce is thick and bubbly.
Serve Yummy Baked Beans with grilled burgers, BBQ Baby Back Ribs, or Honey-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs. It’s perfect for Family Barbecues (double the recipe if needed), Picnics, or for a Chuck Wagon Dinner!
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine pork-n-beans, onion, brown sugar, ketchup, mustard and salt and pepper. Pour beans into a greased baking dish.
- If desired, cook bacon in a large skillet until lightly browned. You may either chop the bacon into bite-size pieces or leave in strips. Top the beans with the bacon.
- Bake for 2 hours until thick and bubbly. Serves 6-8.
