ingredients

  • 3 bacon, slices
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans pork and beans
  • 12 cup root beer (not diet)
  • 14 cup hickory-smoked barbecue sauce
  • 12 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 18 teaspoon hot sauce (I use Tabasco)

directions

  • While raw, chop bacon into small bits. I typically just stack and chop the slices I'm going to use. Place in skillet over medium heat and cook until crisp; remove bacon and drain on paper towel, reserving 2 Tablespoons bacon drippings in skillet.
  • Saute onion in hot bacon drippings until tender. Stir together bacon, onion, beans and remaining seasonings and place in 1 quart baking dish.
  • Bake beans, uncovered, at 400F for 55 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
