This is so similar to baked beans that my mother-in-law used to make. I think the ingredients are the same but the way she made them was different. She cooked the bacon first and added that crumbled up to the beans instead of on top. Then she'd cook the onions in the bacon fat until they were clear. Then add the cooked onions and everything else to the beans and cook for a much shorter time in the oven. An hour or maybe less. That's how I've been making them and they're fantastic! Excellent, easy, fast recipe for baked beans: the way they were meant to be. Thanks for this recipe!



This is a very nice recipe. I followed the ingredients to the letter; however I sped up the process. I browned the bacon and sauted the onions on the stove top - added the rest and heated through. Once heated through I transferred to a crockpot to finish cooking on low 2-3 hours.



This recipe was VERY sweet. Too sweet for my taste. I used canned baked beans. Was the recipe supposed to read canned pork and beans? The sugar from the canned beans plus the molasses and brown sugar added was a bit much.
