Southern Baked Beans

Southern Baked Beans

Growing up when we had a barbeque or cook out nine times out of ten baked beans would be present. I don't know if that is just a Southern thing or what, but invariably there would be baked beans and potato salad. As I've gotten older my version of what baked beans should be has changed a bit, but sometimes it's fun to take a trip down memory lane and make them like the beans of my childhood. I still like my version a bit better, but these beans are ridiculously easy to make and sometimes ridiculously easy is exactly what you need when you want something in a hurry.

Oh and on a side note I'm taking the weekend off so What's For Dinner (after this afternoon's addition) will be back on Monday! Have a great weekend everyone! :o)

What You'll Need:
2 large cans of pork and beans
1 cup of a good, sweet barbeque sauce
1/4 cup of natural brown sugar
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of mustard
1 onion, chopped
Sea salt
Black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large baking dish mix together all ingredients until well incorporated. Bake for 1 hour.

As far as serving you can serve them right out of the oven, or you can chill them first and then serve them cold. They are good either way.

See...Ridiculously simple!

Notes: You can also add in a chopped bell pepper if you like.

That's exactly the way my family has been making beans for over 30 years. And we're not from the south!!

Have a great weekend!

These look delicious! I'm from South Carolina, so we have baked beans all the time!

This is the basic way my mom used to make them (and probably still does!) :o)
