Bebop Baked Beans

Rated as 4.82 out of 5 Stars

"Timeless baked beans are still favorites at picnics and casual gatherings, just like they were back in the '50s. For my theme party, I jazzed up canned pork and beans with bacon, green pepper and barbecue sauce. It's a simple recipe with down-home taste. -Judy Nix, Toccoa, Georgia"

I should have left the regular can of pork and beans alone. I didn't enjoy this recipe and don't like that it was seriously a can of pork and beans with some "flavor" added. I made the Texas bea...

I have no problem starting something from a can, particularly if it turns out to be as good as this did. Besides, I've made "from scratch" baked beans that were simply awful. I added chopped o...

Instead of placing the cooked bacon on top of the beans, i just stirred them in before baking and placed several slices of raw bacon on top of the beans before baking to get even more of that wo...

Wow! So easy and yet so good! This definitely is a favorite at every BBQ meal and this recipe has a wonderful flavor probably due in part to the green pepper which I've never added before. Other...

Excellent! The only change I made was to add 1/2 cup chopped red onions and sauteed them with the pepper. The next time, I will not drain my pork and beans as they were almost too dry. Other ...

I served this at my son's 1st birthday party with smoked BBQ style pork, and everyone kept asking for the recipe! It was easy to make as well!
