Since the temperatures have been well over 100 degrees the past few days, we have been doing an extraordinary amount of barbecuing. The kids haven't had a chance to make too many things, but tonight Sabrina made our secret family recipe for baked beans. Her grandmother has been making these beans for at least 20 years - and to my knowledge it is one of those recipes that isn't written down, just made up as you go along. So follow along with Sabrina:
First, assemble your ingredients - 1 large can beans, brown sugar, barbecue sauce, spicy brown mustard and onion. The mustard didn't want to get into the picture.
First, open the beans and pour them into a medium size bowl.
Next, chop your onion. This onion was very large, so she used about 1/4 of it. Chop the onion into small pieces. You don't want to bite into a large chunk of onion!
Put the onion in the bowl with the beans.
Then put one squirt of mustard into the bowl.
Now 2 squirt of barbecue sauce.
Then 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a greased pan. Sabrina sprayed the inside of a large loaf pan.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Remove from the oven and enjoy!!
