Deep South Eats: Barbecue Baked Beans

These Barbecue Baked Beans really are THE BEST barbecue baked beans. They have such a nice smoky, sweet flavor while the mustard and onion give strong savory notes. They will compliment grilled burgers or hot dogs very well. I promise that the next time you are invited to a barbecue at a friend's house (or your own) you will immediately be signing up to bring these beans. The best part....they taste like you spent a ton of time when in reality your prep took just a few minutes.

  • 2 cans (14-ounces each) baked beans, drained (for testing purposes I used Bush's Original Recipe)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon dry minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 cup sweet, thick barbecue sauce
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled, reserve the bacon fat
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients together including bacon fat (this is the only time I will allow you to do this). Make sure your beans are drained as the first time I made this I didn't realize I needed to drain and had some awfully runny beans.
  • Pour bean mixture into a 2-quart, casserole dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly and heated through.
Original recipe from Confessions of a Kitchen Diva.
