I think of this as Mom’s recipe for baked beans, because I learned to make them from watching her. Over they years though I think I’ve changed it over time and made it my own. People have asked me for the recipe many times over the years and that’s always a problem, because I’ve always just dumped ingredients and tasted it, adding ingredients as needed. Kind of hard to share that! But this time when I made them I took the time to measure about how much of everything I put in. It came out…almost like I usually make it. Ha ha! They were still really good!
I have made baked beans completely from scratch before, but I prefer using a large 53 oz size can of VanCamp’s Pork and Beans. My mom always told me to make sure it was VanCamp’s. She would say that other brands were more liquid than beans.
1 (53oz) can of VanCamp’s Pork and Beans
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup Ketchup
1/3 cup Bbq sauce
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3-4 slices of bacon
