Bar-B-Q Baked Beans
The Ugly Binder, from Allrecipes.com
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained (optional)
1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained I used 2 cans of pintos
1 (15 ounce) can lima beans, drained
1 (16 ounce) can great Northern beans, drained
1 (12 ounce) bottle chili sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons molasses
3 slices bacon, cut in half I pre-cooked it in the microwave
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a medium baking dish, mix kidney beans, pinto beans, lima beans, great northern beans, chili sauce, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and molasses. Top with bacon.
Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until thick and bubbly. I cooked mine in the crockpot for a few hours on high.
This recipe is from Allrecipes.com but I'm pretty sure I got it from someone on a message board. I think the same person posted it at allrecipes. I've made these beans several times for my big summer cookout and there are usually only 1 or 2 servings left from a crockpot full of beans ( I usually at least double the recipe). I added an extra can of beans, just because I had an extra can, so the beans aren't as saucy here as they would be if you followed the recipe exactly.
This recipe isn't as sweet as a lot of baked bean recipes. Don't get me wrong, I love sweet baked beans too, but this spicier version just seems to go over better with a crowd. People seem to love the variety of beans in this recipe too.
I guess it's time to start planning my cookout. It won't be until August but I can already tell that this summer is going to fly by in the wink of an eye.
Blast From The Past: Cauliflower with Garlic and Bread Crumbs from June 2006. That's my favorite way to make cauliflower.
