Brooks' Baked Beans

Back to Salads, Sides, & App recipes

From Brooks G. a Tennessee Titan Tailgater

I don't know that this recipe is all that unusual but it sure is good. It, like any other recipe, is a variation of other recipes with my own twists and turns. The brands I name are just my preferences. They've always turned out much more flavorful for me.

1 28 oz can of Bush's Original Baked Beans (These are not as sweet as other brands)
1 large green bell pepper - chopped
1 large white onion (Vidalia or Texas Sweet) - chopped
1/2 cup catsup
2 teaspoons - brown sugar
2 Tablespoons - Ms. Butterworth's Syrup
1 to 1 1/2 Tablespoons - Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon - Dried mustard or 3 to 4 tablespoons of prepared mustard
Several shakes of Ms. G's Cajun Shaker seasoning (other or your own seasoning may be substituted)
About 8 slices bacon - cut in inch pieces

Combine all ingredients together, except the bacon, and mix well. Pour in a 3 quart rectangular Pyrex baking dish. Arrange the bacon squares on top. Bake with lid on at 325 degrees for an hour to an hour and a half. Take lid off, put on broil and slightly brown the bacon. Don't over cook or dry out. It will be very moist to runny when ready.
