    Hi there!


    Here is my recipe for baked beans.  They are delicious and many people have asked me for the recipe.


    Baked Beans


    2 (28oz each) cans Bush's original baked beans

    1/2 c ketchup

    1/3 c molasses

    1/3 c packed brown sugar

    2 tsp yellow mustard

    2 strips raw bacon


    In a large bowl combine all ingredients except bacon.  Stir gently to combine.  Pour into a greased casserole dish.  Place bacon strips on top, cutting in half if you need to make them fit better.  Put a top on the dish and bake in a 350 preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours.  Remove top and bake 30 mins longer.  Allow to sit uncovered 10 or so minutes before serving.  ENJOY!!!    If there are any leftovers, they freeze and reheat great.




    p.s.  If you try these, let me know what you think

    I just took Depo's baked beans out of the oven and they're fabulous! This is the first time I'm trying them.

    Baked Beans

    2 small cans pork and beans

    1/2 cup brown sugar

    1/2 cup catsup

    1/4 cup molasses

    1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

    4 strips bacon, chopped (optional)

    Mix everything together except for the bacon.  Put the bacon around the top.  Bake at 325 for

    1 1/2 hours.   

    I also double or triple the ingredients and make these in the crockpot on low heat without the bacon.  Then before serving I throw crispy, crumbled bacon across the top.

    Hey Depo, what size can of pork and beans do you use?  Any particular brand?

     Thanks.  CeCe

  • Re: ISO: your best recipe for baked beans


    I’ve made Depo beans so many times. I can attest to these as being perfect…..even Senator Easley thought they were the BEST he’d eaten, high praise indeed!


    My husband’s grandmother taught me how to make bake beans….molasses and the entire nine yards ~ these are just as good as the scratch ones.


    I even use splenda brown sugar and diet coke ~ I take huge amounts of these baked beans to the fire department (2 - 7 pound cans of pork and beans) (I do add a couple teaspoons of liquid smoke to those) and they think Depo is one kick tail cook! Thanks, Depo!!





  • Re: ISO: your best recipe for baked beans

    The recipe that I use is a little different. It includes ground beef, and many times people think that sounds odd until they try them. Other than that, they're very similiar to everyone else's recipes, so you know that all of these are going to be winners since we all use similiar stuff, LOL


    Here is a recent post I did about them with a review from a friend of mine.


    Star's Scrumptious Baked Beans! These are Incredible!

    I made these beans to go with hamburgers tonight for dinner. These were EXCELLENT! My whole family loved them, and this WILL be made again for dinner soon! A big Gold friendsandfoodc_Star.gif goes to Star for posting this yummy recipe!!! Thanks Star! 


     My Post:

    We have been making this simple casserole for 30 years at least. The recipe came from a friend of the family whom Theresa and I both babysat for when we were young girls. We always have it for Thanksgiving and Christmas and many times for special birthday dinners or other dinners during the year. It is my Brother-in Law's favorite casserole. It smells absolutely delicious while it's baking and it compliments many different meals. It's good with a turkey dinner as one of the side dishes, it's good as a side to a ham dinner, and it's good as a side to anything you grill, hamburgers, hotdogs, etc. It's delicious as an accompaniment to ribs.

    To some folks who have never had it, the ground beef sounds odd in it to begin with, but you've got to trust me, once you try it, you will never think so again. You can tweak the amount of each ingredient to get just the flavor you're looking for...a little more sweet or a little more piquant. I never measure anymore, just mix and taste and mix some more. It's hearty enough that you could serve it as a main dish if you liked, but we don't usually do's just one of those things that has it's place on our table and will forever. The bacon was an add in that I started doing later and we don't always use it, but it's good if you decide to.

    Baked Beans (Casserole)

    1 lb ground beef
    1 large chopped onion
    3 regular sized cans pork and beans
    2 Tbsp yellow mustard (I usually do a bit more)
    2 Tbsp worchestshire (I usually do a bit more)
    3/4 to 1 cup ketchup
    1/2 to 3/4 cup brown sugar
    3 to 4 strips cooked, crumbled bacon (if desired)

    Brown ground beef and onion in skillet. Combine with rest of the ingredients in a large casserole and bake in oven for 45 min at 350
    degrees. Casserole should be hot and bubbly when you remove it from the oven.
