Dinner Tonight: Baked Beans

Now that we’ve had our first snow, it is time to start thinking about long, slow-cooked baked beans. Teresa Stebbins submitted this recipe she originally got from a friend. She has made some changes to it over the years, to make it a little less sweet, she writes. As a vegetarian, she uses veggie bacon and vegetarian baked beans, but meat-eaters can go for the bacon gusto.

Baked Beans

½ - 1 pound bacon (fried & crumbled)

2 large cans baked beans, see cook’s note

¾ cup brown sugar

¼ cup molasses

¼ cup dark mustard, see cook’s note

¼ cup barbecue sauce

½ cup honey

1 cup chopped onion

½ cup bell pepper, chopped, optional

Cook’s note: Ms. Stebbins uses Bush’s Best Baked Beans and Jack Daniel’s Stone Ground Dijon Mustard.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Fry bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towels, then crumble the bacon.

Mix together all ingredients. Bake for 2½ hours.
