The absolute BEST homemade baked beans! Smoky, sweet, salty perfection.
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ½ c. ketchup
  • 3 tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 15 oz. can baked beans (Whole Foods 365 Ranchero beans are my favorite!)
  • 15 oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 15 oz. can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Cook bacon in a medium sauté pan until browned and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon so bacon drippings remain in the pan. Add the onion and cook until browned and soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add bacon, onions, and all the rest of the ingredients to a medium-large bowl and stir together to combine. Spoon into a 9x13 baking dish and bake 30-40 until beans are bubbling and thickened slightly. Shorter baking time will give you more saucy finished baked beans.
