I love beans, especially baked beans. I wanted to take my favorite barbeque baked beans and put a new spin on them. You guessed it, add more bacon.
Yes…these Pork and Beans with Bacon are not only smokey, they have super bacon characteristics.
This dish goes together in a matter of minutes with the addition of canned baked beans, pre cooked bacon and prepared barbeque sauce.
Step 1, Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Chop up half a red and green bell pepper, celery, green onion and garlic.
In a pan over medium heat, add olive oil, precooked bacon, all the vegetables, except the garlic, and saute 5 minutes.
Add garlic and seasonings and saute 1 minute more.
Step 2, transfer mixture to a greased casserole dish.
Step 3: Pour prepared barbeque sauce over beans and mix well. Cover beans with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
Step 4: Remove foil, turn oven to broil, and broil beans for 5 minutes more.
The beans are piping hot and ready to serve.
