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.

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.

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!
