I saw this recipe on Paula Deen and gave it a try and it's the best baked beans I have ever eaten. I did replace a few ingredients to suit my style.

This is the same as Paula Deen's except she calls for "1/2 pound bacon strips cut into 1/2-inch pieces". I just thought I would mention that here rather than post a near-duplicate recipe.

I Followed Paulas original recipe for this and used 1/2lb diced bacon, 1/4 cup ketchup, and no worchestire sauce. Next time I'll saute the onion before adding it. Thanks for posting!

Loved the strong flavor, but had to reduce sweetness radically. 1 TBS each, maple syrup and brown sugar was sweet enough for us.
