Recipe Roundup!

I just had to share this with you as it was so easy and so good!  I cut the recipe in half but still used a 1/2 pound of bacon.  I'm bad that way and I love bacon.  Bacon is the reason I will never be able to be a vegetarian.  There, I've said it.  I used to just "doctor up" canned baked beans and had no real recipe but if you knew me you would say, "Sam, use a recipe", as they never turned out the same twice.  So, I searched for the "best baked bean recipe" and I swear I found it!  I got it from www.food.com and it had 5 stars from 68 people!

The perfect addition to picnics and barbecues! Simple and delicious. Sure to become one of your favorites. My mother makes this for every family get together. Ham could be added, or more ketchup if desired, but try it this way first - you'll love it!

Directions

  1. Cut bacon into bite size pieces.
  2. Cook bacon in microwave, checking after each minute, or cook in a skillet, draining fat.
  3. Don't let it get crisp.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients in a 3 quart casserole dish.
  5. Add bacon and mix a little.
  6. Bake uncovered for one hour at 350*.
  7. It's best if they set out to cool for one hour before you serve them.
Enjoy and Happy Trails!

  1. I know I would love these too. We eat a lot of meals that need beans and potato salad for sides. Tonight we had hamburgers and corn on the cob. Wish you could have popped over for dinner! Have a great weekend my friend. Hugs, Diane

  3. Sounds delicious. I have been buying "pre-cooked" bacon at Aldi's and heating it in the microwave. Bacon was on sale at my grocery and I bought some. That pre-cooked stuff cannot compare. Bacon is the best!

    1. I know and the pre-cooked costs more too! I open my windows and share the smell with my neighbors! LOL!

  4. I buy thick bacon. I soak my beans pinto and great northern overnight . Then I bring them to a boil and rinse them twice before cooking them for about an hour. Then cut the bacon into chunks and fry up with onion. Add it to the cooked rinsed beans. Then I mix up about a bottle+ of dark mollasses, about 1 cup brown sugar, ketsup and mustard salt and pepper and bake in a roaster for a couple of hours...then when cool I make up bags for the freezer and we take them out when we are hungry for beans! I never measure the ketsup or mustard...:)

  6. I love bacon too, and indeed bacon sandwiches are the reason I couldn't be veggie (that and roast dinner!)

    1. Are you talking about what we call BLT's here in the states? Bacon, lettuce and tomato on toast with mayonnaise. YUM! That's summer treat for sure.

  9. Maggie! So good to see you and I finally realized that the reason I didn't think you were blogging is because you are at your French farm aren't you!?! I have to put that link on my list so I can tell when you have a new post.....duh...I can't believe I could be so dumb! I'll be over to catch up as I loved your posts from there! Anyone reading this should go there too! It's an amazing journey they're on fixing up an old farmhouse in France. TTYL!!!

    2. I know, I'm having problems with it. I can't get into my Yahoo one so I went back to the slicher@centurytel.net. I'm going to call them as I can't seem to communicate with any one. You could message me over on Ravelry (just copy and paste what you wrote) I am Sandra Licher and my id is saminar. I'm so sorry because I love talking to you!

    1. You've got that right! Are you still blogging? I have to check and make sure I haven't missed your posts. I think I have you on my list but I can be a little scatterbrained...or a lot! It's been a busy Spring!

    1. I will try to be a better visitor and blogger! So glad you got to read them as I'm never sure if people get them as emails or not. I feel so close to some of you that I literally "miss" you when I don't visit! Isn't that wonderful though that we can feel so close to people we have never met? If bloggers ran the world there would never be war...wouldn't that be wonderful? Thank you for stopping by, Helen, as I know you are way busier than I am for sure! I'm just older and slower! LOL!
