French's Cook-Off 2009 Baked Beans Recipe

Baked Beans

My mother has a great recipe for homemade baked beans, but I just couldn't justify the time it took to soak the beans and slow-cook them all day. For my son's 5th birthday, we had a cook-out and I added a few simple ingredients to some canned baked beans and came up with this recipe. It was a hit! This recipe requires about 15 minutes of prep. time and 45 minutes of cook time. For the great taste of home-made baked beans in less time, this baked bean recipe is sure to please!
2 pounds (16 oz.) canned baked beans (original style)
4 Slices bacon
2 Tablespoon bacon grease
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
1 Tablespoon French's Classic Worcestershire sauce
1 Teaspoon French's Classic Yellow Mustard

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the baked beans in a 12 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish and set aside. Place the bacon in a stack and chop it into 1/2" size pieces. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and saute' until crisp. Remove the bacon to a plate. There should be approximately 2 Tablespoons of grease left in the pan. Place the onion in the pan and saute' until tender, stirring occasionally, about 3 - 5 minutes. Remove the pan from heat. Add the onion, bacon, light brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and French's Yellow Mustard to the beans and stir until combined.

Cooking Directions

Baked covered at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes until bubbly.
