    The Ultimate Baked Beans

    Are baked beans a warm comforting dish for a blustery day, or are they the perfect side dish to serve at your summer BBQ?

    In my humble opinion, it is both.  Nothing says summer to me like a cookout with burgers and hot dogs,  corn on the cob and a side of baked beans.  But, then again, there is nothing quite as nourishing as a bowl of warm, comforting baked beans on a cold rainy day.

    Nothng makes your house smell as good as a pot of homemade beans baking in the oven.  Yes, this recipe cuts a few corners by using canned beans, but the final product will taste nothing like anything out of a can.


     The Ultimate Baked Beans

    (recipe courtesy of myrecipes.com)

    1 (1-lb.) package bacon slices
    4 medium-size yellow onions, sliced
    1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
    1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    2 (16-oz.) cans butter beans, drained and rinsed
    1 (15-oz.) can lima beans, drained and rinsed
    1 (16-oz.) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    1 (28-oz.) can baked beans

    Preheat oven to 350°. Cook bacon, in batches, in a large skillet over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving desired amount of drippings in skillet. (Reserve about 3 Tbsp.) Chop bacon.

    Sauté onions in hot drippings over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until onions are tender. Add brown sugar and next 4 ingredients. Cover and cook 20 minutes. Combine butter beans, next 3 ingredients, bacon, and onion mixture in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

    Bake at 350° for 1 hour.
