The Swor House Baked Beans

Ingredients *

IMG_206528 oz can baked beans, undrained

15 oz can dark red kidney beans, drained

15 oz can black beans, drained

1 cup frozen lima beans or 15 oz can of lima or butter beans

15 oz can of diced tomatoes, undrained

1 small onion chopped

¾ cup ketchup

½ cup brown sugar

2 Tbsp sorghum

¼ tsp ground ginger

2 tsp salt (taste – beans have varying levels of salt)

½ tsp garlic salt (more to taste)

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

6 slices of bacon

 Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large casserole combine all ingredients except bacon.

Top the filled casserole with bacon, cut to fit.

Bake for 1 hour checking a couple of times.

If beans are still a bit “wet” after 1 hour, bake another 20 minutes to half hour.

*This is the original “no official recipe required” recipe. I like to add ground sirloin, change up the beans, and toss in a bit of bell pepper, depending on what’s available. That sliced hot dog is sounding pretty good right now. Don’t hesitate to play with your food!
