Mom's Baked Beans are the best.


By LORI LESLEY

WHAT’S IN IT

8 slices of bacon, halved

1 medium onion, diced

1/2 medium green bell pepper, diced

3 large cans of pork and beans (28 ounces each)

3/4 cup Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup cider vinegar

2 TBSP Dijon mustard.

HOW TO MAKE IT

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

Fry bacon until partially cooked; remove and drain on paper towels.

Add onions and peppers to the pan with the bacon drippings and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.

Add beans, BBQ sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and simmer for 5 minutes, careful not to let beans scorch.

Pour into a 9x13 baking dish, top with bacon, then bake for an hour and a half.

Let stand for 10 minutes and serve.
