never make any other baked beans again in your life after tasting these

This is my original baked beans recipe and is featured in the Campbell Women Cookbook Volume One. Enjoy!

1 really huge can pork and beans, drained, reserving 1 cup liquid
2 pounds hickory smoked bacon, fried, reserving grease
1 large onion, finely minced
2 TBS. garlic, minced in oil
1 large green pepper, finely chopped
½ to ¾ cup prepared mustard
1 ½ pound brown sugar

Place beans in large casserole dish. Fry bacon, reserving grease. Crumble when cool and add to beans. In grease, fry onions, garlic, and peppers until translucent. Over low heat, dissolve brown sugar and mustard in onion mixture, heating through. Pour over beans and mix well. If mixture is too dry, add some of the reserved liquid from the beans. Bake in slow oven, about 300 degrees, for 3 hours or until the top is slightly browned and the liquid is absorbed. (You may need to turn up the heat.) You can add brats if you want to make this an entire main dish meal.

I tried to explain to a friend a while back that this is like going to Famous Dave's for an evening. You close your eyes and enjoy it but the next few days you don't want to even look at something with fat in it!

They are baking even as we speak, in anticipation of dad's birthday feast on the deck!

So, Morgan, I have waited all week to hear how the beans were. Perhaps you are in a fat-induced coma???
