  • 10-12 bacon strips (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion (diced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (diced)
  • 1/2 jalapeño (diced)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 5 tbsp ketchup
  • 54 oz can pork and beans
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley (for garnish)


  • Preheat the oven to 325F. While the oven is heating, in a nonstick skillet, cook the thick bacon strips halfway through on medium heat. Drain the bacon on a paper-towel lined plate, and roughly chop.
  • In a large skillet on medium heat, melt 2 tbsp butter. Add the diced onion and bell pepper and saute until softened. Add the remaining ingredients and combine well. Allow the mixture to reach a simmer and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare a 13x9 baking dish with grease or cooking spray. Add the beans into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the bacon chunks on top of the beans. Bake between 2-3 hours. Allow the beans to sit for 5 minutes before serving.
