“My husband used to ask for baked beans every day when we first married. I made them this way to save time. I made them every day for a year, thinking he would get sick and tired of them & not ask for them all the time. After 24 years of marriage, this is still one of his favorite dishes.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces van camp's pork and beans
  • 1 tablespoon instant minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 slices bacon (optional)


  1. Drain the beans (do NOT rinse). (If you are baking the beans in the oven, don't drain as much-or not at all.).
  2. Mix in all other ingredients except bacon.
  3. If you're in a hurry, microwave for 2 minutes & skip the bacon. (This is my preferred method.).
  4. Stir and serve.
  5. Otherwise, put bacon on top and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Note: all amounts are approximate. Adjust to your taste.
