Easy & Delicious Baked Beans


The 4th of July is quickly approaching (yay), and I am thinking of all of the wonderful traditional dishes associated with this holiday as my department at work is having a little potluck lunch to celebrate (my mouth is already salivating).  Clearly, I have long list of possibilities of what I can bring, but one of my favorite sides comes to mind… baked beans. When I went to look for my recipe on here, I was shocked to find that I did not post it previously. My bad! So… here it is!

This recipe calls for bacon, but I believe it would be just as tasty if you choose to omit it.

Ingredients

  • 8 strips of bacon, thick cut
  • 2 (28 ounce) cans of Bush’s baked beans w/bacon
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 small Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Cook bacon in microwave, checking after each minute, so it’s still soft. Don’t let it get crisp.
  2. Cut into small, bite-size pieces, set aside.
  3. Put the remaining ingredients in a crock pot. *
  4. Add the bacon and mix.
  5. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

* This can also be prepared in the oven at 350 for 1 hour in a 3-quart baking dish.
