Baked beans -- kicked up a notch. Serve alongside Split Dog Foot-Longs.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup dark brown sugar
  • 8 slices sliced black pepper bacon
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans baked beans
  • 1 few dashes hot sauce (more if you like things spicy)
  • 4 -5 scallions, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Sprinkle the brown sugar on each slice of bacon to generously coat each strip. Arrange the coated bacon strips on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and crispy, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool and crumble up.
  3. Place a medium pot over medium-high heat with the baked beans and hot sauce. Heat the beans through, add the scallions and portion onto dinner plates topped with the crumbled bacon.
  4. *If you cannot find black pepper bacon, buy regular bacon and generously coat it with freshly ground black pepper before topping it with the brown sugar.
