Easy Bean Bake

I made this dish for a potluck at our church. It is quick and easy to put together and rarely are there any leftovers!
These beans are also great paired up with multigrain bread, buns, biscuits or as a side dish with grilled steak.
I usually make baked beans starting with raw beans that are soaked overnight and then cooked for hours in the oven on low heat. But every once in awhile I like to do this quick recipe.
Thanks Linda for the recipe.
  • 3- 398 ml(14 oz) cans of pork and favorite are deep-browned beans in tomato sauce
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine and cooked till's quite okay to omit this, it will still taste wonderful
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash of Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce. I used a spicy sauce but any kind will do
  • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • Optional: you can use crumbled bacon bits if you desire
  1. Mix all these ingredients together and pour into a roaster.
  2. Bake covered in 350ยบ oven for 35 to 40 minutes so that they are heated through and the flavors have meshed.
  3. A crock pot works great too.


  1. Terry was just saying the other day that he as hungry for this quick bean casserole.. it is yummy and it's so good to have it on this blog. Thanks Betty.

  2. mmhm, this is a staple at our house, the family loves it!

  3. I don't really don't care much for baked beans, I might give this one a try.

  4. you know liebe betty, i was ready to post mine when i saw you had posted one to mine that was similar.
    this is so tasty and i am craving some right now......

  5. Oh I love a good bean casserole....comfort and warmth...perfect for my rainy dull day today. Yummers on the tabasco sauce!

  6. In my mind,easy is good.This looks good enough to eat.Thanks.

  7. LOL I am SUCH a New Englander~I cannot see tomato sauce in baked beans, it MUST be maple syrup or molasses. Our westerly cousins seem to favor beans and tomato sauce, grins. Such are regional traditions, eh? However, with these fancied up beans I would certainly make the switch as these sound very good indeed! Coincidentally I was wishing for something similar the other day to go with hot dogs and here you are. Betty, you are reading my mind once again. (We would have to have onion, grins.)

  8. Yummy, I love home-made pork and beans. It's simple, and easy. Thanks Betty.

  9. Tomorrow we are having the pastor and his wife over and I am making oven BBQ chicken, homemade buns, these beans and my own recipe for Curried Carrots:
    you steam the carrots (or stirfry them), and when they're cooked through you coat in a paste made of about 1/2 C mayo, fresh chopped dill, 1 1/2t curry powder and a dash of worcestershire sauce.

    My mouth is watering for this meal already!

  10. I've made beans like this for years although I never measure. I'm so glad you wrote down the measurements so I can share this great recipe with others. These beans are delicious.

  11. I just fell across this blog and have spent a couple hours already browsing through it. Such a pleasure!

    My mother's family was Mennonite, and I remember many dishes in the Mennonite Recipes section well and still make a few. (We didn't put cream in our green bean soup, though.) You've inspired me to enjoy trying more of them!

    I also noticed on one post a reference to a tutorial on photo collages -- could someone point me in that direction?

    Thanks again for the wonderful blog -- I'll be back often!

  12. I have been looking for a good baked bean recipe! This may actually be it :)
