Here is the BEST baked bean recipe around!!! In England, we eat a very different kind of baked beans. Plop them on some buttery toast or serve with your full English brekkie, there is nothing quite like it. I love those equally! However, these are American baked beans and nothing about it is good for you. But it’s so worth it! Perfect for back garden summer gatherings. They go perfectly with burgers, hot dogs, bbq chicken and mac and cheese. I have tried and tested this recipe and it’s sweet, and decadent. Can’t wait for you to try them too!
You will need:
2 Cans Pinto beans
1 Can Northern Italian beans
1/3 Sweet onion, diced and sautéed
4 rashes of bacon, diced and sautéed with onions
2 Cloves garlic
1/2 Cup tomato ketchup
1 Cups BBQ sauce, homemade or Sweet Baby Rays
1 Dash hot sauce, (I like Tabasco or Franks for this)
1/2 Cup chicken stock
1/2 Maple syrup
1/2 Cup brown sugar
This recipe is so easy. You saute the onion with the garlic and bacon in olive oil in a frying pan. Then in a baking dish, dump it in to the beans which you have drained and rinsed. Then add everything else at once and stir it all together. Cover with foil and pop in to a preheated oven at 400 degrees F for about 40 minutes. Then uncover for the last 10 minutes and serve hot! These are also SO good leftover too!!! They are sweet and tangy and the balance of flavors is perfect. They won’t disappoint you or your family for your weekend bbqs!
