Molasses, brown sugar, and bacon combine to make these delicious baked beans! And they are so quick and easy to make. I made some revisions, but this recipe originated from The Joy of Cooking cookbook. I cook it uncovered the entire time (as opposed to cooking covered for the first 30 minutes) which gives the sauce that yummy, dark caramel color.
3 cans of northern white beans, including the liquid
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
4 T. dark molasses
4 T. brown sugar
2 T. apple cider vinegar
6 slices bacon
Grease a 9 x 13″ glass casserole dish. Mix all of the ingredients, except the bacon, in the casserole dish. Place the bacon slices on the top. Bake uncovered for 60 minutes at 350 degrees.
