Baked beans are a must have for any gathering at my house. Not only are they great, they are economical when feeding a crowd. And we love a crowd. During the summer we do a lot of entertaining…and love every minute of it. So, you will see that to make this, I double everything…one batch just isn’t enough to feed this hungry crowd…and there is never a bite left.
Everyone loves this recipe. I am constantly asked to write it down for folks.
And today I am sharing it with all of you!!
Remember I always double it for my house, so the ingredients that I used shown in my picture are for a double batch, but the recipe below is for a single batch. Also, I grabbed the wrong kind of tomatoes for my picture, use diced tomatoes, not crushed.
Cook the bacon and onions.
Mix the baked beans and cajun seasoning in a baking dish.
Place the bacon and onions on top.
Mix the sugar and tomatoes together.
Then place on top and bake.
3 slices of bacon
1/2 cup minced onion
2 (15 ounce) cans baked beans
1 Tablespoon Cajun seasoning
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
2 teaspoons sugar
Fry bacon and onion until bacon is crisp. Place baked beans in a 3 quart baking dish, stir in the Cajun seasoning, mixing well. Layer the bacon/onion mix on top of the beans. Mix together the diced tomatoes and sugar, then pour over the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.
