Lorraine's Bake Beans

I've posted this recipe before. I usually use FURMAN'S brand in the 7 LB can, but mom bought me BUSH'S BEAN POT in the 7 LB 5 OZ can recently. I prefer FURMAN'S since I make my own bean sauce.


7 Pound can Pork and Beans

1/2 Pound bacon

1 Large Onion chopped

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Cup Ketchup

2 Tb Mustard wet

2 Tb Worcestershire Sauce


Cut a pound of bacon down the center of the package and then cut one half into 1/2 inch slices. Now cook in a skillet until brown and crispy. Remove most of the bacon grease but leave about 2 TB. Now add the chopped onion and let it cook until soft and golden. Now pour into a small bowl and add the other sauce ingredients and stir well to dissolve the sugar. Make sure you taste this delicious sauce before you refrigerate it. I just LOVE this sauce! It's delicious! I should sell it!
When ready to make the sauce just mix it with the pork and beans (drain 3/4 of the sauce that the beans come in) in the crock pot set on HIGH and forget about for a while.

Bush's Baked Beans- Where's the Beans?

A 7 LB 5 OZ can of BUSH'S Best Bean Pot Baked Beans is not full of beans... I drew off 13 ounces of bean sauce from the can until I reached the level of the beans, before pouring the beans into the crock pot. There was more sauce with the beans, how much I'm not sure. I added my own baked bean sauce consisting of bacon/onion/brown sugar/ketchup/worcestershire sauce/mustard and marjoram.

What I'm really saying here is, you get more filler sauce then in the past.. You don't need all that sauce... it's a rip off. We consumers are plagued by this type of rip off on many food items.
