Easy Southern Baked Beans

These Easy Southern Baked Beans is the best authentic recipe perfect for your BBQ or cookout. This classic dish is made with canned beans, bacon, and your favorite BBQ sauce. 

Prep: 15min

Total: 85min

Yield: 8

Servings: 1 serving

Nutrition Facts : servingSize 1 serving, calories 267 kcal, Fat 2 g, Carbohydrate 37 g, Protein 11 g

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 cup chopped onion (I use white onion.)
  • 2 garlic cloves (Minced.)
  • 2 28oz cans baked beans (I use vegetarian.)
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 2-4 tablespoons brown sugar or sweetener (I typically use 3. See notes.)

Instruction:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. I like to use a cast iron skillet to make everything using one pan. You can use any pan or oven safe baking dish.
  3. Heat a skillet on medium high heat and add the bacon and chopped onions. Cook until the bacon is crisp and the onions are translucent and fragrant.
  4. Drain any excess fat. Add in the garlic and stir.
  5. Add in the beans, ketchup, BBQ sauce, liquid smoke, chili powder, and brown sugar or sweetener. Stir. Taste the mixture repeatedly to ensure the flavor meets your tastes. I don't add any salt because I feel the bacon adds enough. Taste and decide if you want to add salt or any other flavor.
  6. (Alternatively, you can cook your bacon separately and simply add all of the ingredients to your baking dish without sauteing them on the stove first. Sauteing the onions and garlic first is done to enhance the flavor).
  7. Bake for 50-60 minutes until the beans are bubbly and the sauce has thickened.
  8. Bake the beans uncovered. Place a sheet pan under your pan if you fear the mixture will drip over and seep out.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool before serving.

Low Carb, Reduced Sugar Baked Beans

Cannellini and White Kidney beans contain phaseolamin which can help keep absorption of calories from starchy foods lower, while still allowing people to enjoy some of their favorite foods that might be higher in carbs than they prefer. This unique effect was discovered by Venezuelan cattle ranchers, who fed their herds raw kidney beans in the early 1970’s to fatten cattle. These ranchers reported to government scientists that their cattle lost, rather than gained, weight from the kidney bean feed supplement. These findings were verified in laboratory animal feeding experiments, and published by Venezuelan scientists. Enough of the science! This recipe is really tasty and completely perfect for back yard barbecues or a camping trip!
