And since I didn’t cook a thing this weekend despite my plans to share a recipe with you (unless you count a can of reduced fat cinnamon rolls that I absolutely did not eat all by myself even though I totally wanted to), I thought I’d give props to my husband today.
Mark’s Baked Beans
4 cans pork & beans, drained
4 slices of bacon, cooked
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix it all together and bake for two hours at 350 degrees. Stir every half hour. Enjoy – but by the spoonful, not the bowlful. Not that we speak from experience in our house. Ahem.
Now, I should tell you that Mark claims he puts a secret ingredient in his baked beans. I’m pretty sure it’s bacon grease, but honestly, I just try not to think about that. He says there’s another, separate super-duper secret ingredient.
But he’s also pouting because I’m giving away his special recipe for his signature dish. So, please, if you follow this recipe and come up with the best baked beans you’ve ever tasted and then you happen to attend a potluck or BBQ with us, bring potato salad.
Do you have any secret recipes??
