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 bbq'd steak.
I usually like to make baked beans starting with raw beans that are soaked overnight and then are 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:)

Here is the recipe:

3- 398 ml(14 oz) cans of pork and beans..my favorite are Heinz brand..deep-browned beans in tomato sauce
1 med onion, chopped fine and cooked till tender..it's quite okay to omit this, it will still taste wonderful
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp prepared mustard
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
dash tabasco sauce
1/2 cup barbeque sauce..I used a spicey sauce but any kind will do
2 tbsp parsley flakes
Optional..you can crumble in bacon bits if you like.

Mix all these ingredients together and put in a roaster.
Bake covered in 350ยบ oven for 35 to 40 min so that they are well heated and the flavours have meshed
A crockpot works great for this too.

  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.)

  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!

  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!
