Beans, beans, the magical fruit, the more you eat, the more you…well, you know the rest! Yep, raising boys forever changes you! It just can’t be helped, and, in all honesty, I wouldn’t change a thing. The Very Best Bacony Baked Beans Ever will also change you…this is the only way you will fix baked beans forevermore.
It’s funny that The Very Best Baked Beans are not really baked at all, but cooked on the stove top for a mere half hour!
A classic, this recipe is savory and sweet (but not too sweet) and sure to please your palate. These beans, The Very Best Bacony Baked Beans Ever, are a fan favorite! SO MUCH FLAVOR! No picnic, cook-out, barbecue or get-together is complete without these bad boys. And, they, literally, take less than a half hour to make. Easy peasy!
Everyone that I have ever fixed them for has loved them. I have had so many requests from family and friends for this recipe. This recipe is so quick and simple to make and pairs well with so many different meals.
Obviously, they are great with almost anything grilled, but also fried chicken (not that I can fry chicken!), steak, wings, Catalina Chicken, burgers, hotdogs, etc.. But, my very favorite meal to include them with is grilled baby backs, air fryer baked potatoes and these baked beans…AMAZING! The recipes for my grilled baby backs and air fryer potatoes will be posted soon. Keep a look out!
HELPFUL HINTS FOR THE VERY BEST BACONY BAKED BEANS EVER
Be sure to dice bacon and onion into small pieces.
I use the large can of Bushes Baked Beans as my base and then amp it up.
Keep a close eye on them, they will go from juicy to burned in no time flat.
