  • 2 (28-ounce) cans pork and beans spoon off excess liquid from top
  • ½ medium sweet onion, roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard I like Colman's
  • 6-8 slices (about ½ pound) thick cut bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces or pork belly!
  • ½ cup catsup


  • Preheat oven to 325º and grease a large 2½ to 3 quart casserole dish with bacon fat, just rub some bacon pieces around the dish.
  • Empty one can of pork and beans (excess liquid skimmed off) into bottom of casserole dish. Combine brown sugar and mustard in small bowl. Sprinkle half the brown sugar/mustard mixture over beans. Scatter chopped onions over beans and brown sugar mixture.
  • Empty second can of pork and beans over top. Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar mixture. Scatter bacon pieces evenly over top, followed by catsup.
  • Bake in slow oven (325º) for 2½ hours. Stir to combine and let rest at least 15 minutes before serving.
