Best Baked Beans

img_0093.jpgBecause these are made with canned beans, they don’t bake in the oven for hours and hours. They really are one of the best baked beans.

1 pound uncooked bacon, sliced into thirds
2 onions, diced
2 tsp. minced garlic (jarred is fine)
3 28-oz. cans of baked beans
1 1/2 cups ketchup based chili sauce
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup yellow ballpark mustard (not spicy)
3 tsp. dried basil OR oregano
1 tsp. red hot pepper flakes***optional but very good
2 tsp. ground cumin
A little less than 1/4 cup packed brown sugar – (preferably dark brown)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Saute the bacon for 10 minutes. Stir in the onions and keep cooking for 5 more minutes. Add the garlic and cook 3 minutes more. Scrape this into a large baking dish then add all the rest of the ingredients and gently mix/stir to blend together. Bake this uncovered until it’s bubbly and there’s a tad of brown crust on the edges – this takes about 45 minutes.
