Sweet Beans

These beans are terrific with BBQ or grilled or fried chicken. We had them with some awesome pork ribs that my sister sent to Corey for his birthday last week.

Recipe Notes
I cut the bacon up into bite-sized chunks before cooking so that everyone would get bacon on their serving of beans. I believe that the original recipe just indicates to lay the bacon over the top of the casserole dish.

  • 53-oz. can of pork and beans in tomato sauce, such as Van Kamp's
  • 1/2 white onion, minced
  • 1/2 green or red bell pepper, minced
  • 6 tbsp. ketchup
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. mustard
  • 6 slices bacon, preferably center-cut


1. Drain beans and set aside.

2. Saute onion and bell pepper in a skillet until translucent. Add beans.

3. Mix ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar. Stir into beans.

4. Pour beans into 2-qt. casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Top with bacon.

5. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until bacon is browned and crisp.
