These baked beans are very tasty, easy and quick to prepare, and make great leftovers (but you probably won’t have any more, because they are so good!). If you are new to using your Dutch oven, this is a great recipe to start.
1 lb bacon
4 cans of pork and beans
1 tablespoon of mustard
1/4 cup ketchup
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
Cut the bacon into 1 to 2 inch pieces. Heat the pot then cook the bacon in the pot. When finished, drain the oil. Add the pork and beans, mustard, ketchup, chopped onion, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and cook in embers until hot and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
The only real preparation they take is slicing up the bacon and chopping the onion, so this dish is great for camping. You could make things even easier by cooking the bacon and chopping the onion at home, then putting it all together at camp.
These make a great side dish for hot dogs, burgers, chicken, almost any camp meal. You can also make them at home, either with your Dutch oven or using another baking dish. Precook the bacon and freeze it and keep the cans of pork and beans handy and you have a dish you can make when you need something quick and easy. You can easily make more by doubling or tripling the recipe, making it a great dish when you need to bring something to a family, church, or neighborhood potluck.
