BBQ Baked Beans

This recipe is enough for 2-4 people, but I usually double or triple for potlucks 


1/2 lb bacon (cut to pieces) 
1 medium onion, diced - or use less fresh onion and substitute onion powder later depending on your families taste 
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup 
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (sweet baby rays) 
1-2 Tbsp prepared dijon mustard
1/2 tsp paprika or cayenne pepper (depending on taste)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1-2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, depending on taste
1 tsp garlic powder 
1 (16 oz) pork and beans (I use Van Camps) - all the juices
1 (16 oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (16 oz) great northern beans, drained and rinsed

In a skillet cook bacon and onions until onions are tender. Mix sugars, ketchup, bbq sauce, mustard, pepper, chili powder, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder in a separate bowl. Combine beans, sauce mixture, and meat/onion mixture in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 2 two hours or low for a few hours until all ingredients are simmered together. 


  1. I know this stuff tastes good (cause you've made most of it for me at some point), but pictures would really add to your blog. People want to see what they're making :)

  2. Yeah, yeah :) Then I could actually post my stuff on Pinterest and add more recipes --Perhaps that would become feasible and a noteworthy hobby if I ever stopped working full-time :)
