Ingredients

2 1-pound (or 15-1/2 ounce) cans pork and beans
1 pound bacon
1/2 cup chopped onions, or more, to taste
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 Tablespoons molasses OR Dark KARO syrup
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard

Method

You can tell everybody you baked these beans from scratch, and they'll never know the difference.

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Drain the liquid from the beans.

Remove and discard that token scrap of pork fat (if that's what it really is) they put in each can.

Put the beans in a 2-quart baking dish.

Fry the bacon, remove it from the skillet and drain on paper towels.

Sauté the onion in the bacon drippings until it is transparent.

Remove onion with a slotted spoon and add to beans.

In a small bowl, blend the brown sugar, molasses, ketchup and dried mustard.

Break or tear the bacon into 1-inch pieces and add to beans.

Add the brown sugar mixture, and stir gently until all ingredients are incorporated.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring once.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Note: This recipe is easily doubled for a big cook-out crowd.
