Baked Beans

Don't know what to do with those cans of pork and beans you've had forever? I had that problem until I found this.  Its a tasty, inexpensive, easy recipe, and it is really good with rice. You can also adjust the ingredients however you want and it will still be good
Servings: 3


  • 1 can baked beans with pork
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard (i used dijon)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar 
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sliced bacon (optional, but tasty  :)
  • ground spicy pepper (i used chipolte)
  • barbeque sauce 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a 9x9 inch baking dish, combine the pork and beans, brown sugar, onion, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with the bacon slices.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour, or until sauce is thickened and bacon is cooked.


  1. Maybe since you like these I will give baked beans another try!

  2. So true about the can of pork and beans that never goes away (until the scouts run a food drive)!!!
