Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 350°F Coat a 1 1/2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the bacon and mix well.
  • Pour into the baking dish and lay the raw strips of bacon on top (I cut the bacon into pieces so it will mix in nicely later).
  • Cover and bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until thick and bubbly.
  • Uncover and bake for 5 more minutes.

    This is a very easy recipe to put together and delicious. I did microwave the bacon for 2 minutes to be able to drain off some of the grease. After baking covered for 45 minutes, the beans were not as thick as I'd like so I baked another 30 minutes uncovered. I'm going to take this to the next potluck I go to. Made for I Recommend Tag Game 2010 this recipe was recommended by HokiesLady.

    These beans are delicious. I found it easiest to cut the bacon into pieces and lay over top. That way it was really easy to stir the bacon in after baking. For some reason my sauce came out a little thin, so like another reviewer, I ended up baking the beans another 30 minutes uncovered.

    Made for a nice inexpensive lunch. Really enjoyed the combo of beans, apples, and bacon in this. Devored by all in one sitting. Wouldn't change a thing. Made for All you can eat Buffet 2011..

    Fabulous recipe Flower!! These were devoured at my son's soccer team BBQ tonight - even after doubling the recipe! Not one bean was left in the pot. I had never put apples into baked beans before but now I can't imagine ever baking them any other way! Have I said they are fabulous!! :) Tagged in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game May 2008 ***** Updated 6/2009 - Flower I am still making this recipe often. It is always a hit and I just wanted you to know that it will be a favorite dish of mine for years to come! :)

    Dh is the family baked bean connoisseur and he gave this a big thumbs up, flower7. I liked it better than I generally like baked beans.


I have a degree in archaeology from a small Ohio college and I work for the Ohio History Connection. My passions are art, music, books, food, history, and cats/animal welfare. I also love photography. I have a 1,000 (plus) piece collection of vintage flower pins from the 1960's, hence the username ha. I also have small collections of vintage butterfly pins, vintage tablecloths, and vintage glass Christmas ornaments. (Can you tell I love vintage?) I took a trip to the Netherlands in March 2006 and fell in love! I doubt it will happen but if I ever have the opportunity I would love to live there.
