Old Fashioned Baked Beans

I was writing a post the other day for my Old Fashioned Coleslaw and realized that I had not posted my Old Fashioned Baked Beans and those two dishes really go together. A picnic is not complete without coleslaw and baked beans if its a Barbecue in the Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall these two sides are always a constant. This recipe has been in our family ever since I started making baked beans and we have never really had the need to change it. Some of my family and friends are so excited to get this recipe today, hope you enjoy it!

Ingredients
3 (15 ounce) cans Pork and Beans (drain 2 of the cans)
6 slices bacon
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup dark molasses
1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon mustard
6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
dash hot sauce (to taste)
Directions
Chop 3 slices of the bacon into bite size pieces and brown it in a medium skillet.
Add the chopped onions and cook the onions until clear.
In a medium mixing bowl add the 2 cans of drained Pork and Beans and the 1 other can that has not been drained. Add the brown sugar, molasses, ketchup, mustard, vinegar and hot sauce. Mix well.
Stir the bacon and onion mixture into the bean mixture and mix well.
Pour the mixture into a medium size baking dish and place the remaining 3 slices of bacon on top.
Bake in a 325 degree oven for 1 to 1-1/2 hour. The longer you cook it the thicker it will be because the liquid will cook down.
Enjoy!
