Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Cut bacon into bite-sized pieces and set aside.

  • Combine the baked beans, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, mustard, and onions in a 2-quart casserole dish. Stir in 2/3 of the cooked bacon and 1/4 of the brown sugar until evenly mixed. Cover the bean mixture with the remaining bacon, and sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbly, about 45 minutes.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Used this as a base recipe and really enjoyed it. I was asked to make 20 servings of baked beans for a child's party. I used 2 (55 oz each) cans and 1 (28 oz) can of Bush's Original baked beans 4 packages of Oscar Meyer bacon crumbles (the ones in the bag near the croutons salad dressing etc.) 1 large onion (minced fine) 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar (which was plenty) 3 1/2 Tbsp of ketchup 1 1/2 Tbsp of mustard 1 3/4 Tbsp of Worcestershire and added 1 1/2 - 2 tsps. of Liquid Smoke along with 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tsp of black pepper. Cooked in the slow cooker on low for 4 1/2 hours then switched to warm to keep them hot for the party. Everyone loved them. I will definitely make these again for family gatherings! Read More

I thought these tasted pretty good but very sweet. I even used two cans of baked beans and didn't double the sugar and they were still too sweet. I used store brand baked beans and I do not recommend doing that as they were very runny right from the beginning which made for runny finished beans. I think I would use this recipe as a base next time to make baked beans to suit my personal taste Read More

Excellent baked beans. I made bbq ribs mashed potatoes and these beans. The beans were everyone's favorite. I didn't measure anything but otherwise didn't make any changes to the recipe 7/2/15 update: I have been making this for parties on Memorial Day 4th of July etc. for several years now. I love the recipe as-is but have found that adding some cooked ground beef adds an excellent twist. I discovered this one year when I had too many burger patties. I just grilled a couple of the extras and through it in the beans with the bacon. Very tasty! Read More

DELICIOUS recipe. I double the recipe to make it a main dish and it was a hit. There was only 1/4 of the casserole left over. I added more ketchup & mustard to make it more moist. I used hamburger instead of bacon. I didn't get to use Worcestershire sauce because I did not have any. That didn't matter to the family. I topped it off w/ cornbread batter on top of the casserole the last 15 minutes and baked some more until cornbread was done. I wanted to use Pillsbury Biscuits but didn't have any:-) Great recipe and thanks for sharing. It was nice having something new at the table. Read More

I give this 5 starts b/c it's delicious! Even when I accidentally put 1 tablespoon of mustard in instead of teaspoon and no bacon b/c I didn't have any. It is very very tasty! I say try it next time I will add the bacon. Read More

This was great! Tasted yummy and pretty easy to make even for me. I wouldn't change a thing. It did seem like a lot of work for what you can buy in the store but I think it tasted a bit better than the store. Oh and I used turkey bacon. Just as good. Read More
