Quick Southern Style Baked Beans

Baked Beans are one of my favorite sides.  I love them with grilled burgers, brisket, chicken, barbecue - just to name a few.  They make the meal in my view.  I love this recipe for Baked Beans. They are so easy to make and I have never tasted such delicious Baked beans.
Start with cooking some bacon and then remove and drain on paper towels.  Cook some diced onions and green peppers (I used a red pepper) in the bacon drippings.  Add some Pork and Beans, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, cider vinegar, and some mustard.  Stir and bring to a simmer.  Add the bacon strips and bake for about 2 hours.

Best Baked Beans ever.

Quick Southern-Style Baked Beans
recipe by Pam Anderson From The Pioneer Woman

Serves up to 18

8 slices bacon, halved

1 medium onion, cut into small dice

1/2 medium green pepper, cut into small dice

3 large cans (28 ounces each) pork and beans

3/4 cup barbecue sauce

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup distilled or cider vinegar

2 teaspoons dry mustard or 2 tablespoons Dijon

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Fry bacon in large, deep sauté pan skillet until bacon has partially cooked and released about 1/4 cup drippings. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels. Add onions and peppers to drippings in pan and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add beans and remaining ingredients bring to a simmer. (If skillet is not large enough, add beans and heat to a simmer then transfer to a large bowl and stir in remaining ingredients). Pour flavored beans into a greased 13-by 9-inch (or similar size) ovenproof pan. Top with bacon, then bake until beans are bubbly and sauce is the consistency of pancake syrup, about 2 hours. Let stand to thicken slightly and serve.


  1. Red bell pepper always seems to taste better when I sub it in for green pepper. Using green pepper is retro! Your recipe makes my mouth water!
