Semi-homemade Baked Beans. Yum.

Semi-homemade baked beans by sagittariusgallery :)

So last night, much to the other half's delight, I made my baked beans. They're wicked easy and really good. Eat at your own risk they are artery clogging, methane inducing delicious ;)

Simple Ingredients -

1 28oz can Bush's Boston Style Baked Beans
1 16oz can Bush's Country Style Baked Beans
1 package center cut bacon

tobasco sauce
onion powder
garlic powder
black pepper

Simple preparation -

Fry entire package of bacon on stovetop until crisp and allow to cool on paper towels and reserve a small amount of bacon fat (probably the amount of liquid fat from 4 slices of bacon).

While bacon fries...

Turn oven onto 375 degrees.

Empty beans into 8x8 caserole dish. Sprinkle 7-8 liberal shakes of tobasco sauce, drizzle a tablespoon of molasses, and skake a very fine layer of garlic powder and onion powder over beans. Stir together. Mix in bacon fat. Break up 3 strips of bacon and mix in as well.

Cut up the rest of the bacon into 1 inch strips with scissors so they don't crumble apart. Make a bed of bacon over beans. Sprinkle more onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper lightly over bacon and drizzle with thin ribbons of molasses.

Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 after pulling beans out for sauce to thicken a bit.

Enjoy :) It's so bad for you but so yummy.
