BBQ Baked Beans


This is another recipe that will be on our menu this Labor Day weekend.  I don't think a good BBQ meal is complete without some baked beans.  Now, by "BBQ" I mean slow cooked pulled pork, smoked chicken, brisket or ribs.  Some people (Yankees) use "BBQ" as a verb, when it is truly a noun.  BBQ is the meat - not something you do with the meat.  You don't "BBQ" burgers or steak - you grill burgers and steak. 

I've tried lots of different recipes for baked beans over the years and I finally combined them into one that had all my favorite things in them.  These beans are sweet and tangy from the BBQ sauce and have a great crunch from the french fried onions.   You could make a meal out of the beans alone.




BBQ Baked Beans
(Printable Recipe)

2 (16-ounce) cans pork & beans
1 cup BBQ sauce
1 tablespoon yellow or brown mustard
5 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
1 (6-ounce) can french-fried onions, crushed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In large bowl, mix together beans,  BBQ sauce, mustard, 1/4 of the bacon, and 1/4 of the onions. Add some salt and pepper, to taste. Pour beans in 9-inch casserole dish and sprinkle remaining crushed onions and bacon on top. Cook in oven for 1 hour or until beans brown and bubble. Serve warm.

  1. I agree with you on the beans and I really like your BBQ comments. The word gets used to mean the meat and cooking style as you said along with a get together (lets have a BBQ), a cooking device (usually a grill), or any meat with BBQ sauce on it. There may be no hope when Pat Neely, who owns a BBQ restaurant, gets on national TV and says there's several ways to cook BBQ chicken - the grill, the oven, etc (I'm surprised he didn't say crockpot :-) ), prior to adding the BBQ sauce. As a purist, I just have to bite my tongue and accept the way it is. Have a good one.

  2. Good idea to use FF onion rings in the baked beans. I like them so I bet they match perfectly.

  5. My bad, Steph! I'm one of those Yankees. I see it now that you've pointed it out. Forgive me? What time will the BBQ be served? :)

  6. Looking delish! To think that I love beans! This is the same barbecue recipe that my grandmother prepared for us yesterday. In her barbecue cooking, she used gas. Barbecue reviews has been given to Grandma because of this recipe. Because of that she was so thankful she was able to buy awesome cooking materials in a recent gas barbecue sale.

    The sumptuous dinner was followed by a short program wherein all the kids showed their talents in singing and dancing. That was a gleeful evening! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Steph!
