Southern-Style Baked Beans

Southern-Style Baked Beans created by lazyme

I have several recipes for baked beans, and they all seem to suit a particular time of year or occasion. These are the baked beans I traditionally make on Super Bowl Sunday. They go very well with my pulled pork and other dishes on my menu. I do warn you that this recipe makes a LOT of beans. This recipe is easily increased or decreased. Use a 28-ounce can of beans for every six guests.

  • Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position. Heat oven to 325 degrees. In a large pan, fry bacon until it is partially cooked and you have about 1/4 cup of drippings. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels.
  • Add onion and bell pepper to drippings in pan and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add beans, bacon and remaining ingredients; bring to a simmer. (If there's not enough room in the pan, add beans and heat to a simmer; transfer to a large bowl and stir in remaining ingredients).
  • Pour flavored beans into a greased 9-by-13-inch (or similar size) oven-proof pan (a large, wide casserole allows the beans to thicken nicely). Bake, uncovered, until the beans are bubbly and the sauce is the consistency of pancake syrup, about 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the "juiciness" of the brand of beans you use.
  • Let stand to thicken slightly. Serve warm.

    Awesome beans. They were simple to make and were a real hit at my house. My grandson walked in, took one bite, and all I could here was......mmmmm! Thanks for sharing, Sheila.

    Really nice recipe. I used orange and yellow peppers, and my bbq sauce of choice was Devil's Spit-it has kick. I was not sure I wanted the brown sugar, but it played nicely with the other ingredients and helped to balance out the flavor perfectly!
