stove top baked beans

A richly flavored stove top baked bean recipe combining molasses, bacon, ketchup and brown sugar, then slowly simmered in a sweet-and-savory sauce.  The recipe cooks quickly on the stove and makes enough for a picnic or barbecue. The flavor is like you have baked them for hours.


    • 1/3 cup sautéed onion
    • 2 (15 ounce) cans pork and beans
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup molasses
    • 1/4 cup ketchup
    • 2 teaspoon yellow mustard
    • 5 slices cooked bacon


  1. Fry bacon and drain on paper towel. Remove grease from pan except 2-3 tablespoons to saute onions.
  2. After onions have softened, combine all ingredients.
  3. Crumble bacon and add to beans.
  4. Bring to a simmer, and keep it at a simmer for half on hour, or until it is thickened to your liking. Stir occasionally to keep the beans from burning.
