The Kneady Homesteader’s Infamous Baked Beans

My Infamous Baked Beans:

i can use my canned beans i pressure canned, but not everyone does that, so here is the easy way:
1 HUGE can of Bush’s Baked Beans (Sam’s Club) OR 4-5 LARGE cans you buy at the grocery store. you can pick whatever flavor you want, but for this i try to stick to the original.
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup of homemade brown sugar
1 onion, chopped finely.
1-2lbs of bacon, depending on how much you want. for this i used 2lbs. i cut it up into 1 inch pieces, then place it on a roasting tray with drip pan, and put it in a 400 degree oven, and bake my bacon until crispy. This prevents splattering or having to watch and cook my bacon on the stove top. LOL so easy.
1 cup of honey.

bake your bacon. slice your onion. open your can or cans of beans and put them in a large baking dish. i use a glass Pyrex. add the bacon, onion, honey, sugar and molasses and stir until well blended. bake in a 350 oven for about 2-3 hours. until very bubbly and thick. then let them stand. they thicken while they stand, and they taste extremely good room temp or slightly warmed. heck, they even taste good cold! LOL believe it or not.

  1. I would like to make these from scratch using dry beans and canning right in the jar. Is this possible and if so how would I go about doing this. I live alone and the big batch would be just to much. Thanks looking forward to hearing from you.

    • I am not sure you could make this using dried beans without cooking the mixture. you could always google search and see if you get lucky and come across anything. i tried for you and couldn’t find anything. so sorry. 🙁
