These are the BEST Baked Beans EVER! I have tried many, but was intrigued by this recipe that Paula Deen prepared and was sent to her by friends. This is a must try recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, BUT ADD ONLY HALF THE FRENCH FRIED ONIONS (crush the onion in the can before using them).** Unless you like things realy sweet, cut the Molasses in half or even leave them out, as several reviers have done!1.
  3. Pour into a 9x13 sprayed casserole.
  4. Sprinkle with the remaining onions.
  5. The casserole will be very full, so set it on a cookie sheet to save your oven.:-).
  6. Cook for aproximately 1 hour or until it bubbles.

Divine baked beans to say the least! Made these for a party the other day and they were well received. That said, this makes a LOT of beans. . .I caution that you might want to cut the recipe in half. I served half the batch and then froze the other half to serve at a later date. I will never make another baked bean recipe again. . .this was too delish and easy to boot.

These a good beans, I loved the fried-onion crunch on top. Made as written, just decreased the recipe by half. I didn't have crushed pineapple so I minced up some pineapple rings that I had. Made for Help a Naked Recipe Tag in the Photo Forum.

I have to say, I also got this recipe from years ago. These beans have been a huge hit at every party! I am writing this review because I seen this recipe listed on the home page of this website and instantly smiled. Oh yeah, it deserves the front page! In fact, my cousin recently divorced about a year ago and the one thing her ex-husband asked for was this recipe from me! The hardest part for me was finding where the grocery stores hide those cans of fried onion crisps! otherwise a huge hit and well worth making for the Summer BBQ'S!
