This is my wife's long-time recipe. It's similar to many others, but the bottom line is that this one tastes a lot better than most.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook bacon until crisp.
  2. Add green pepper, onion, and garlic.
  3. Cook until soft and drain, reserving 1 Tbsp bacon grease with the onion mixture.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a medium lidded casserole, mixing thoroughly.
  5. Place covered casserole in a 350 degree F for 15 minutes.
  6. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F, and bake for 1 additional hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  7. If desired, uncover for the last 15 minutes to dry out the beans a little.

I don't normally like baked beans unless they have bacon and taste really good. These didn't disappoint! I doubled the recipe but I think that was a mistake because it made a lot! I was surprised. Thanks!

I made this recipe for my son's birthday BBQ and everyone loved it! The only thing I changed was using honey instead of molasses. This recipe is a keeper, thank you.
