RECIPE

Doctored Up Baked Beans

Serve with Split Dog Foot-Longs and Olive and Vinegar Slaw.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 8 slices sliced black pepper bacon*
  • 2 cans baked beans (15 ounces each)
  • A few dashesm of hot sauce (more if you like things spicy)
  • 4-5 scallions, sliced

Preparation

Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF.

Sprinkle the brown sugar on each slice of bacon to generously coat each strip. Arrange the coated bacon strips on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and crispy, 12-15 minutes. Let cool and crumble up.

Place a medium size pot over medium-high heat with the baked beans and hot sauce. Heat the beans through, add the scallions and portion onto dinner plates topped with the crumbled bacon.

*If you cannot find black pepper bacon, buy regular bacon and generously coat it with freshly ground black pepper before topping it with the brown sugar.
