Easy Baked Beans

Updated 8/14/2012 9:36 AM

2 cans (about 15 to 18 ounces each) pork and beans

cup brown sugar


1 teaspoon dry mustard

6 slices bacon

cup ketchup

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 2-quart, 3-inch deep casserole dish by rubbing raw bacon around the bottom and sides.

Slice the bacon in bite-sized pieces.

Pour one can of pork and beans into the dish.

In a small bowl, combine sugar and mustard; sprinkle half the mixture over the beans. Top with the remaining beans. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar-mustard mixture over the beans. Top with the chopped bacon and ketchup. Bake, uncovered, 2 hours.

Serves eight.

Cook's notes: The recipe may be multiplied for more servings. Check on the beans as it nears completion. It should have a bubbling rich brown look at the end. May add a little water if it seems too thick.
