Bourbon Baked Beans


I’ve been wanting to try these beans for a couple of years and finally got around to it on the Fourth.  They are yummy and bourbony which I love.  The only thing I would do different next time is to drain the can of beans because I don’t like my beans quite so saucy.  If you like them saucy, don’t drain.

Bourbon Baked Beans

6 slices bacon
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 (16 oz) cans pork and beans (I used Bush’s Vegetarian Beans)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dry mustard
1 cup ketchup
1 tbsp molasses
1/4 cup bourbon

Preheat oven to 350º.

Cook bacon in a skillet until done but not yet crisp. Remove from pan, drain, chop, and set aside.

Drain all but 2 tbsps bacon grease from the pan and add the onion and green pepper and saute until soft.

Combine all the ingredients, except bacon, in a 1-quart casserole dish. Top with the bacon.

Bake for 40-45 minutes.

Makes 8 servings.

Happy Cooking!
