These are the beans I make whenever I do the homemade version - I've had the recipe forever. They come out super sweet and delish!
Hubby ran the smoker on July 4th so we had ribs and brisket to go with coleslaw, pasta salad, these great beans, and a banana cheesecake pie. It was all fabulous!Bourbon Baked Beans
4 slices bacon
1 large onion, chopped
3 cans pork and beans, undrained
1/2 c. brown sugar
8 oz tomato sauce
1/2 c. bourbon (not pictured)
1/4 c. molasses
2 T mustard
2 T Worchestershire
1 t garlic powder
Cut up the bacon and fry it up. Set it aside and cook the onions in the bacon fat.
I let them get a little soft, but you could carmelize them, if you want. They're going to cook more later.
Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer, stirring to combine, about 10 minutes.
Pour into an oven safe casserole dish, top with the reserved bacon, and bake uncovered at 325 about 2 hours. Check them every now and then to make sure they're not getting dry and add a little water if you need to.
Gosh, those were good! We served them for Scout's graduation cookout, too Try them and see what you think!
