The past three family gatherings I’ve been to, I’ve been elected to bring baked beans… is my family trying to tell me something? My mom was always the baked bean queen, and it seems that the torch has been passed to me! Although, I can’t say I mind. Baked beans, between me and you, are the easiest thing on the planet to make! And they get better as they sit, so you can make them days in advance, pop them in the fridge, and then heat them up at 350 degrees F for about 20-30 minutes when you’re ready to serve! You must make these for your next BBQ (or just because you want some baked beans)! I promise that you and your guests will love them!
Classic Baked Beans-serves 8-10
2 28 oz. cans vegetarian style Bush’s Baked Beans
1/4 cup molassas
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 yellow onion diced
1/2 cup bacon bits (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl. Mix well and pour into a 9×11 baking dish. Bake for 50 minutes to an hour until beans are bubbling. The beans will set even more as they cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
