					Homemade Baked Beans Recipe
If you're looking for a good "homemade baked beans recipe" recipe - this
is the place! Everyone loves some good baked beans, but most recipes call
for them to be in a crockpot. Mine doesn't, instead I use can beans and
cook them on the stove top. It's true, you could just buy a fancy can of
Bush's baked beans, but it's just not the same as making your own
homemade baked beans and letting them simmer of the stove as the flavors
meld together! These are equally as good in the summer with a BBQ as they
are in the winter on a cold blistery day!
3 cans great northern or navy beans, or 1 - 48oz jar or Randall's mixed
beans (drained)
1 small onion (diced)
2 cloves garlic (diced)
1 cup barbeque sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tablespoon mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
3-4 strips of chopped cooked bacon (if you like)
Drain each can of beans and pour into a sauce pan. Add all other
ingredients and cook on medium high heat until it boils, then cover and
reduce to low heat and simmer for one hour. If you're in a real hurry,
you can cook on high for 10 minutes and serve (it just won't taste as
In the winter time you can cook this on the stove and let it simmer while
making the main dish, but in the summer I like to just put the pot on the
grill and let the beans simmer while I grill my meat. By the time the
meat is done, the beans are usually done shortly after. There are all
kinds of beans you can experiment with on this recipe as well, I usually
end up using what I have on hand at the time. So I may use Pinto beans,
Chili Beans, Mexican Beans - and even though you're making "homemade
beans" it doesn't mean that you can't utilize any leftovers that you may
have around. For instance, if I grill out and have left over burgers and
beans, the next day I may chop up the leftover cooked burgers and thrown
them in the beans and simmer for 20-30 minutes and eat! I've used thrown
in leftover taco meat, sloppy joe, and even chicken. Technically that
makes the "homemade baked beans" more like a chili - but it's ok to
change it up a bit! Another thing that's fun with this recipe is to add
some cubed cheese of any kind just minutes before it's done. That melted
cheese can make it a big hit with everyone in the house!
