Baked Beans with Bacon

Baked Beans with Bacon

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.
