Baked Beans

Printable Recipe

1 large (28 oz) can pork and beans (or 2 small 14 oz cans)
1 small can mushrooms
5-6 bacon slices, cooked and diced
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup onions (or you can use a couple tablespoons of dried onion instead)

Mix it all together. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Serves 5-6 as a side dish.

Holly's Note:
This is an old family recipe that came from my aunt. She made them for a recent family reunion and my husband thought I'd made them! It's an awesome side dish for barbeque. We can't have burgers unless we have beans too.

This also makes a delicious, almost meatless meal on its own. Serve it with cornbread for a comforting, down-home dinner!


  1. Oh!! Is this Aunt Yolanda's?? I Love, Love these beans!!

  2. How many servings? Also what size can? There are several sizes out there.
