Well, with Easter this weekend, followed quickly by the start of summer, I thought I'd put up a baked beans recipe. Not sure if it's really an Easter recipe, but it could be. Usually our Easter meal consists of ham, potato salad, green bean casserole, fruit salad, and dinner rolls. Oh, yeah, and deviled eggs....how can you NOT have deviled eggs?
It used to be that my idea of baked beans was to open the can, dump them into a microwavable dish and heat them up. Then I came across this recipe wonderfully delicious recipe for Baked Beans....great for Easter, a summer picnic or a pot luck.
4 slices bacon
1 medium onion, sliced and separated into rings (or chopped)
1 C green pepper chopped (optional)*
2 10-oz can pork and beans in tomato sauce
4 tablespoons ketchup
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
Cook bacon until crisp, drain, and crumble. Set bacon aside. In the drippings, sauté onions and green peppers; drain. Combine onion mixture, crumbled bacon, beans and the 4 remaining ingredients in a greased casserole dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
