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
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 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.
