Easy, homemade baked beans with bacon
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 4 hrs
Total Time 4 hrs 10 mins
Course Side Dish
Cuisine American
Servings 6 people


  • 2 cans Bush's Original Baked Beans
  • 6 strips bacon crumbled
  • ½ cup diced onions or 1 tsp onion powder, see note above
  • ¼ cup apple butter
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes


  • Either preheat your oven to 250F, or prepare your slow cooker, depending upon which cooking method you choose. Both will take the allotted four hours of cooking time.
  • Fry up your bacon, allow to cool slightly, then chop it up.
  • While your bacon is frying, finely dice your onions.
  • When those two things are ready, combine all ingredients in a deep casserole dish or your slow cooker, again depending on the cooking method you've chosen.
  • Bake (slow cook) for four hours (on low, if slow cooking).
  • Serve & enjoy! These get better and better with age. I've been known to use leftovers as chip dip a couple days later. Don't judge me until you try it!
