Standard cans of regular ol' pork and beans are the base of the dish, and then the flavor is amped up using a few common ingredients. And bacon. Of course there's bacon. The sauce is sweetened up with brown sugar, and then gets a little spice from the barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce and dry mustard. And did I mention bacon? Enjoy!
- 6 slices bacon, cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 tsp. garlic, minced
- 2 (15 oz.) cans pork and beans
- 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
- 2 tbsp. light brown sugar
- 1 tsp. dry mustard
- 1 1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
Meanwhile, remove all but 2 tsp. bacon grease from the pan. Turn the heat to medium. Add the onion and garlic and cool until onion is translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
In a 8x8" glass dish (or a small casserole dish), mix the bacon, onion mixture and the remaining ingredients.
Cook for about 30 minutes or until heated through.
