Okay, this is a first for me on a lot of levels so please bear with me. Luckily Mommie Dearest and KiwiBoi were kind enough to tell me how to post images. Yahoo, for learning new things. Now I can terrorize all of you with my cooking in Technicolor. Anyway, quick disclaimer. I don't do gourmet food. I make peasant food that is very good, or at least I think so, and so do the people I make it for.
This recipe isn't an original, but rather one I saw on Food Nation with Bobby Flay, brought to you by Bobby Flay and hosted by Bobby Flay. (c) 2004 by Bobby Flay Productions. I liked the simplicity and decided to give it a try. It's definitely the best recipe for baked beans I've ever found. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Preheat oven to 360 degrees
- 2 32 Oz. Cans Bush's Baked Beans
- 1 Lg. Yellow Onion
- 6 Ozs. Brown Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Yellow Mustard
- 1 Cup Ketchup + more for garnish
- 7 Strips Uncooked Bacon
- Start by slicing up your onion. I like to cut the ends off of mine so that they lay flat while I chop them into little bits.
- Here they are all nicely chopped up. I don't use my Wusthof's unless there is some serious chopping to be done, so please don't rail on me for using a plate as a cutting board. These are throw aways.
- Now we stir them in so that they are all nice and spread around.
- Next, measure out your brown sugar and pack it in there good. You don't want to have it loose or your measurements will be off.
- Add the sugar to the beany oniony goodness.
- Gratuitous photo of my "captive" audience. Wife not pictured as she's chained to the bed (actually, she's taking these pictures for me).
- Time to add the ketchup.
- Mustard is next.
- Now give that all a nice stir. We're almost done. Not pictured adding salt and pepper. If you can't do that, then you've got issues.
- Oh yes, this wouldn't be complete without the deliciousness of bacon. It actually makes all the difference.
- Don't forget the garnish. It's so purdee.
- Our finished product.
- While this was baking, I fired up the grill and made us some hotdogs to act as a "main" dish. The hotdogs are actually more of a side dish when these beans get made. You can even put them on the hotdogs if you're feeling adventurous. I wasn't.
- There you have it and my first entry into IC:SA. Baked beans. I'll be making these for the Super Bowl this year since the Eagles aren't going to make it. Stupid team. Anyway, enjoy the beans.
