Everyone and their mother has a tried and true baked beans recipe… and for good reason too. Some days, you just don’t want a green side dish, you know? Some days you just want carbs and bacon. I adapted this recipe from my mother-in-law, who makes a mean pan of baked beans. I think you’ll be pleased.
2 large cans of Bush’s Original
3-5 slices of bacon
1 onion, chopped
1/3-1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350.
Fry bacon in skillet, remove to a paper towel-lined plate to cool. Crumble.
Add onions to grease, cook until soft.
Meanwhile, spread 2 cans of baked beans in a medium sized baking dish. Mix in brown sugar to taste (I use closer to 1/3 cup because I don’t want them overwhelmingly sweet) and cinnamon. Add crumbled bacon, onions and any remaining grease.
Stir to combine and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Beans and bacon totally count as a side,
