Beer Baked Beans

Filed under: bacon, make ahead, pork, side dish — Emily @ 8:30 am

These are some of the greatest baked beans I have ever tasted. The beer adds such a great flavor! And they are really easy to throw together. A perfect addition to a barbecue or pot luck. They are easily reheated as well so they can be made ahead.

Beer Baked Beans

6 bacon slices

1 1/2 cup chopped onion

1 1/4 cup barbecue sauce

3/4 cup dark beer (this *makes* the dish–don’t leave it out!)

1/4 cup molasses

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon soy sauce

4-6 teaspoons chipotles

6 15-16 oz. cans beans (Great Northern or cannellini beans)

Cook bacon to your liking and drain off fat. Cut bacon into pieces and set aside. Cook onion in a little of the bacon grease until translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients (including the cooked bacon and onion) in an ovenproof dish and cook at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

  1. After I made stove-top baked beans a few weeks ago, I’ve been wanting to try the real thing, and I love the addition of beer and molasses here!
