Tales of the Dinner Belle
By Brenda Stanley
Whether you are barbequing steaks, making pulled pork, or just want a hearty side dish to complement your meal, my easy and delicious baked beans is hard to beat. They can be put together in minutes and then they simmer for hours as you go about your day. When you’re ready, you have a hot and hearty, smoky and slightly sweet side dish that no one can resist.
These beans are not over the top, with too much spice or heat. They have just the right amount of saucy flavor to keep them from over powering the main dish. The bacon and onions add the homey touch and yet, you’ve spent almost no time putting this delicious dish together.
Belle’s Baked Beans
6 strips bacon
1 small onion
3 (15.75 ounce cans) pork and beans in tomato sauce
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 ½ tablespoons of yellow mustard
1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
We’re going to start by frying 6 strips of bacon until nice and crisp, remove them from the pan but keep the drippings. Chop one small onion. Add it to the bacon drippings and cook it until is it brown and tender. Remove from heat. In a slow cooker, place 3 cans of pork and beans. In a small bowl, mix together, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 3 tablespoons ketchup, 1 ½ tablespoons of yellow mustard and 1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce. To your beans, add your browned onions, and your sauce and then mix well. Add the bacon that you’ve crumbled. Stir this all together, cover the slow cooker and set it on high for 4 hours.
