MICKEY'S BAKED BEANS
1 lb. bacon (hickory smoked)
3 medium onions, chopped
1 very large can pork & beans (4 lbs.)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
1/2 cup catsup
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup good select Dark Rum
Fry bacon in iron skillet until brown. Remove, drain, crumble*; set
aside. Sauté onion in bacon drippings. Place pork & beans in large
3 quart casserole dish 13x9x2. Add onion and remaining ingredients. Stir. Add
bacon drippings and crumbled bacon. Arrange a few pieces of bacon for
looks on top. Water may be added if mixture is too thick. Bake
at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
YIELD: 10 to 12 servings
Recipe from Barbara Gantt, but added a few extra ingredients; e.g.,
Worcestershire sauce and the molasses and deleted the salt since the bacon
has plenty of salt.
NOTES: The brand of pork and beans in the picture had a lot
of liquid and drained most of the liquid (sauce), however some brands of
pork and beans will not have that much sauce and will not be necessary to
drain the sauce from the beans. Also, I reserved* four strips of the
cooked bacon and crumbled in on top of the baked beans after removing from
the oven. Unless you are feeding a family, this recipe is way too
large for two, therefore you can cut the recipe in half and use an 8 inch
square baking dish. This is a high calorie recipe and you can
substitute Splenda or equivalent brand for the brown sugar and regular white
sugar without loosing a lot of the traditional baked beans flavor.
A few pixs below:
Ingredients for the baked beans or most of them anyway. Observant
readers already pointed out there were not any ketchup or Worcestershire
sauce in the above pix but listed in the recipe, whereas I was
running at about 75 percent capacity this afternoon.....grin now.
This large Townecraft 13 inch diameter frying pan or skillet really gets
a workout at the Porter home!
Crumbled cooked bacon added to the baked beans after removing from the
oven. My bride said the baked beans look prettier with the bacon added
(topping) after removing from the oven. I followed her advise and lead
on this one because she is more experienced in the kitchen than yours truly
but I do enjoy trying. These baked beans and North Carolina BBQ
with cole slaw or marinated slaw with a side of hush puppies and a big
gobbler of cold iced tea followed up with some peach cobbler or old "timey"
banana pudding will have you whistling a tune in short order, I mean a tune
from the vocal cords that is....go ahead and grin again.
