DIRECTIONS

  • Put all the beans inside of a deep casserole dish, evenly distribute the thinly sliced onions on top and set aside.
  • In a sauce or saute pan, fry the bacon -- and save the drippings from it. Don't fry the bacon in the microwave because you will lose the drippings that you will need later to make the dressing.
  • Put the fried bacon on paper towels to drain. After it has become crispy, crunch the bacon into little pieces and put ontop of the bean mixture.
  • Meanwhile, drain all the bacon fat from the pan except for 6 tablespoons. I do this by pouring all the bacon drippings (without scraping any bacon bits from the pan) into a heat-proof bowl and then I measure out 6 tablespoons of the fat to put back into the pan.
  • Add the sugar and vinegar to the bacon drippings.
  • Heat this mixture to a light boil for about 2 minutes.
  • Pour this mixture over the beans in the casserole dish. You can immediately bake OR if you have the time, cover it and let it marinade overnight in the refridgerator.
  • If you have let it marinade overnight, take it out of the refridgerator about 1 hour before baking so it can return to room temperature.
  • Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
