Bacon, beans, and brown sugar… with these three ingredients you can’t go wrong. This Easy Baked Beans with Bacon dish is one of my mom’s recipes, and it happens to be one of my husband’s favorites. It is such an easy recipe to make that you wouldn’t think I could get it wrong, but I did. On Tuesday I made this recipe thinking I was all set to start writing my blog post about it, but on Wednesday when my husband went to eat the leftovers he said, “That doesn’t look right.” He was referring to the full strips of bacon I had put on top of the beans. So I called up my mom, and sure enough I found out that you need to cut the bacon into small pieces. The funny thing is my husband was actually happy about the mistake, because that meant I had to make a second batch of beans.
Now that I have this recipe corrected I can share it with you so you can serve it at all of your summer barbecues and picnics. Your guests will love the sweet and salty goodness of this dish. So get out the your bacon, baked beans, and brown sugar and let’s get cooking. But remember… don’t forget to cut up the bacon into bite sized pieces. I’m sure I will never forget again.
For this recipe you will need 4 (15 oz.) cans of pork and beans, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 8 strips of bacon.
First drain the 4 cans of beans.
Then pour the drained beans into an 8″x 8″ baking dish and top it with a 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
Cut up the 8 slices of bacon and put them on the top of the beans.
Now bake the casserole in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
