baked beans

sorry about the photo folks. those beans had already been chowed on and some lucky person got all that caramelized goodness off the top. no matter, let me tell you those are some of the easiest and tastiest baked beans on the planet. i can't remember where i came across the original recipe, but i doctored it up over time. here is what you need:

3 28 oz. cans of pork and beans
1-2 tsp. of minced onions depending how much you like onion
1 tsp of yellow mustard
1 cup ketchup
1/4 molasses(my special somethin')
five slices of crumbled bacon

mix all this together and pour into a three quart casserole. baked uncovered for two hours or so at 300 degrees fahrenheit. i always put my dish on a cookie sheet in case it bubbles over( my ovens are way overdue for a scrubbing as it is). it will have a sticky, smokey, sweet crust on top. oh boy are they good and yummy. i hope you will give these a try at your next summer get together. enjoy!
