Baked Beans With Baked Bacon

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by KateL

This combines Baked Bacon (Oven Fried Bacon) and Best Baked Beans, with tweaks (like doubling the bacon). Made for July 4th party. It tastes so good, with a big wallop of flavor, I don't feel guilty about starting with Bush's Homestyle Baked Beans.

Nothing fancy, but a hit with our family! We love Bush's beans already and hadn't tried Applewood bacon, but basically this just combines two quality components into one nice, hearty dish. Works here!

Ingredients Nutrition


  • 1 lb applewood-smoked bacon

  • 2 (28 ounce) cans brown sugar baked beans (Bush's Homestyle)
  • 13 cup ketchup
  • 18-14 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small onions or 1 medium onion, chopped


  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. Line a half sheet with aluminum foil and put a cooling rack on top. Arrange slices in rows, with fat edges slightly overlapping lean edges.
  4. Bake 375 degrees without turning 20-25 minutes (depending on thickness) but remove from oven before it begins to crisp. If needed, cook more, 2 minutes at a time.
  5. Remove bacon to double layer of paper towel and blot excess grease.
  6. Lay bacon on cutting board and cut into bite-size pieces before completely cool. (I cut across the entire pile of bacon with one slice.).
  8. Set oven to 350°F.
  9. Mix the Baked Beans ingredients in a 3-quart casserole dish or half buffet tray. Add the cut-up cooked bacon and mix a little.
  10. Bake uncovered for 1 hour.
  11. Allow to cool 1 hour before serving.
