I have a secret… for years whenever we are invited to a family picnic I get asked to make/bring my ‘homemade’ baked beans…. I like shortcuts so…. my baked beans are super easy but taste ‘homemade’… here is my secret weapon

Yes…this is it… Bush’s Baked Beans.

MB’s Super Secret “Homemade” Baked Beans

{directions per 28 ounce can-double, triple, etc. as necessary}

28 ounce can Bush’s Baked Beans

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 ketchup

1/2 small onion chopped into small pieces

4 strips of bacon

1 tablespoon butter {this may or may not be necessary}

1.  Brown bacon and remove from pot leaving grease in pot to saute onions. {If there is not enough bacon grease, melt 1 tablespoon butter to saute the onions}.

2.  Break bacon up into bite size pieces…not too small – you don’t want them to disappear.

3.  Once the onions are a nice golden brown add the baked beans, brown sugar, ketchup and bacon.

4.  Simmer on low heat for at least one hour if on the stove top and 2 hours on low in the crock pot.
