Let’s make Southern Baked Beans !
As you can see these are very simple ingredients and you will have most of these things on hand already in your pantry or fridge. I generally always have brown sugar , ketchup , Worcestershire sauce , mustard , salt and pepper. It’s also a good chance I have bacon hanging around along with onions . Pretty much for this recipe all I need to buy is the canned beans and bell pepper. The less ingredients you have to buy and you are able to use what you have on hand , the more budget friendly a recipe it is .
Pour all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl except the bacon.
Stir until mixed together.
Pour into a baking dish and top with cubed bacon .
Cover with foil and baked in a preheat 350 degree oven for one hour . After and hour uncover and cake another 30 minutes.
These beans are best served warm .
