  • 106 oz. canned Pork and Beans (two 53 ounce cans of VanCamps Pork and Beans)
  • 2 ½ cups of dark brown sugar

  • Add all the ingredients, except the bacon to a large 9 x 13 baking pan
  • Stir well to combine.
  • Arrange bacon slices across the top of the beans.
  • Bake in a 350-degree oven for 2 ½ hours or until the bacon is browned and slightly crispy.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.



  • All canned beans are not equal. Some have way more liquid than beans. If you use a very runny can of pork and beans the baked beans will be very runny. Pour a small amount of the liquid out of the can before adding the bean to the baking pan. Save it in case you need it later.
  • Do not omit the onion.
  • You can adjust the brown sugar, slightly.
  • Use a spoon to scoop off the excess grease that might  come to the top of the baking pan, if needed. 
  • Place the 9 x 13 inch baking pan on a cookie sheet to prevent spills when moving the pan to and from the oven.
  • Which canned pork and beans?:I prefer VanCamps pork and beans. The beans taste good and are high quality.
  • Bacon: Bacon brands can vary in quality. Buy the best you can afford.
  • Brown sugar: I always use dark brown sugar because it is made with molasses and add just enough flavor.
  • Onions: Please do not be tempted to leave out the onions.
