My friend (and cousin) Lori and her family came over for a picnic and she brought baked beans. They were so good! They always are! I had her tell me exactly how she does them and then I tried it. Here is the recipe:
2 cans baked beans, drained (She used Bush’s original, but she uses others also). Don’t rinse, just drain.
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
4 hot dogs, sliced
5-6 sliced bacon, cut into 1″ pieces
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Empty drained beans into 9 x 13 casserole.
-Add brown sugar, ketchup and hot dogs. Stir.
-Top with bacon slices.
-Bake uncovered for 70-75 minutes.
-Broil on low 4-5 minutes until bacon crisps. (I did not raise the rack, just kept it in the middle.)
-Let beans sit for an hour.
