It wouldn’t be summer without a big pan of Baked Beans! Add some sugar and bacon, what could be better?
There a few things that remind me more of a summer barbecue than baked beans. Serve it on the side of chicken and corn – you’re all set. I found this recipe in an old church cookbook. I’ve collected so many over the years and some of my very favorite recipes come from church cookbooks. I love pouring over them and finding recipes to try.
Homemade Baked Beans
My favorite combination is savory with a little bit of sweet. That’s exactly what this recipe is – beans with some brown sugar and salt from the bacon. Mmmmm mmmmm!
Is it weird that I could eat a full plate of beans? Don’t answer that…
But if they were all this good, you’d want to eat a plate full too.
One of the best things about this recipe is that you just pour a bunch of ingredients into a bowl, add them to a dish and bake for an hour. There is not much work to do at all but when you pull it out of the oven, this side dish is heavenly.
