My aunt has been bringing these beans to cookouts for as long as I can remember. She finally parted with the recipe. I was surprised at the ease. They bake up so good.

- 1 teaspoon of minced onion
- 1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup ketchup, plus
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 5 slices of crispy cooked bacon (crumbled)
- Combine all ingredients and place in greased 3 quart baking dish.
- Bake uncovered@ 300 degrees for 2 hours.
Oh my Richard, but your Aunt is a wonderful cook! After spending years of playing around trying to get the flavor I was looking for, I finally found it in this recipe. I served these last night with some crockpot ribs and the combination was excellent together. I had made these the night before and just popped them in the oven to warm (about) 25 minutes. They were super! Thanks Richard, my search is finally over!
So good! Finally a good baked beans recipe that doesn't require ground beef and all kinds of other stuff added to it to fatten it up. This was just perfect! I cut this recipe by a 3rd and cut the brown sugar down to only 1/4 cup since I'm not a fan of sweet baked beans. I left the onion and mustard measurements as if I were making a full recipe. Just fabulous. Will use this one again for sure!
I made these not with canned beans but with left over great northern beans with ham already in it that I had made on Sunday. I wasn't sure this would turn out.. boy am I glad I was dead wrong! These came out great! I will never ever buy baked beans again! I did "bake" these in my crockpot on low for four hours instead of the oven.. had bread rising in the oven and a cake to follow it.. Just so if anyone else wants to do the crockpot over the oven.. Thanks Richard for the bestest * new word* EVER baked beans...
