It is a very adaptable recipe! And, has been well liked by anyone who likes good baked beans. Well done! Oh, thee King Syrup is a PA Dutch favorite. You can substitute any sweetener, like molasses. My husband used Grandma's or any dark molasses which has a taste he liked. Use whatever you like!
Aunt Helen's EZ Baked BeanPrep: 20 min Cook: 1 hours Servings: 10by Glenn39 recipes>
Aunt Helen gave this recipe to my mother who modified it slightly. My mother gave it to my sister who modified it slightly. My sister gave it to me and I modified it to suit my taste. It is quite tasty and rivals the more complex and difficult recipes that I have for Boston Baked Beans. In less than an hour and a half you can have delicious baked beans for your dinner, picnic, pot luck or poker game.
- 3 cans (16 oz each) Beans (any kind that you like)
- 6 strips Bacon
- 3/4 cup chopped Onion
- 1 cup Ketchup
- 1/4 cup Mustard
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 4 tbs King™ Syrup
- 2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce (because I put WS in everything)
- Open beans and put into strainer to drain the liquid.
- Pre-heat oven to 350°.
- Fry bacon until crisp then remove to cool.
- Turn off burner and add onions to bacon grease and allow to fry briefly.
- Add Ketchup, mustard, brown sugar King™ syrup and Worcestershire sauce. Stir together.
- Add beans and crumpled bacon and stir well. (Optionally you can lay the bacon on the top if you are into that sort of thing)
- Dump into casserole and heat in oven about 1 hour or until your kitchen really smells good.
