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.
- 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!
These make excellent beans! I can't believe I haven't reviewed these yet, I've made them so many times, now. I do play with your proportions a little, though. I use 1 small onion, minced, 1 Tbsp spicy brown mustard, 3/4 cup brown sugar (maybe a little less), 2/3 cup ketchup, 1 Tbsp smoky BBQ sauce, and 1/2 lb bacon cooked and crumbled. Made this just last night to go with some brisket - Mmmmm!!! Thank you for sharing your aunt's recipe here, Richard!
