Got a great post for you guys today! Please welcome Angie from Big Bears Wife!
Thank you for joining us Angie :)
Hello Table for Seven readers! I am so happy to be a guest of Erin's today here on her beautiful blog. Thank you so much for having me today, Erin.
I'm Angie and I blog over at BigBearsWife.com, it's my little space of the Internet to share our favorite recipes, our travel photos and sometimes I throw a few crafts into the mix.
The whole time I was growing up I always thought that baked beans where just what came out of a can. Once you heated them on the stovetop, that was it, that was baked beans. Oh my was I wrong. It never even crossed my mind (until now) to actually add things to them and bake them.
Of course you can start from scratch and bake the beans as well, but we love the flavor of BUSH'S baked beans so I've been playing around with a few ideas of things to add to the baked beans that we already love. These BBQ Bacon Baked Beans are probably my favorite so far. The tangy from the BBQ, the sweet from the brown sugar, oh it's so good! Plus I love the fact that they are so easy to make. Put everything into an oven safe pot, cover and cook!
BBQ Bacon Baked Beans
What you need:
2 cans (28oz each) of BUSH'S Original Baked Beans
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 bottle of BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Rays 18 oz Hickory & Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce)
6 stripes of uncooked bacon
What to do:
Pre-heat the oven to 350.
Pour the baked beans into a large oven safe pot. Stir in the brown sugar, garlic powder and dry mustard.
Stir in the BBQ sauce. Stir well and then taste. (Add more brown sugar, garlic powder or dry mustard if needed)
Cut the bacon into 1 inch pieces. Stir the bacon pieces into the baked beans.
Cover and cook at 350F for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
