Spicy Baked Beans with Bacon
Smoke and spice gives this side dish a nice kick.
1 lb of cooked bacon, rough chopped
1 medium yellow onion, diced finely
64 oz pork and beans (4-16oz cans)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup yellow mustard
3 tablespoons Marie Sharp’s Smoked Habenaro Pepper Sauce
Fresh minced parsley, for garnish
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and adjust oven rack to the lower-middle position. Spray a 13x9 baking dish with non-stick spray and set aside.
Using your preferred method, cook bacon and reserve 1-2 tablespoons of bacon grease. Set bacon aside.
To a skillet with the bacon grease, add onion saute about 5 minutes, until softened.
Add all remaining ingredients and stir to combine well. Let mixture cook 1-2 minutes to combine the flavors.
Carefully pour beans into prepared baking dish and lay cooked bacon pieces on top of the beans.
Bake 2-3 hours, until bubbly and thickened (or to your liking).
Garnish with parsley (optional).
