Ingredients

1 pound bacon

1 onion, chopped 

6 cloves garlic, chopped

Four 15-ounce cans baked beans, drained 

1/2 cup light molasses 

1 cup dark brown sugar 

1 cup barbecue sauce 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a plate with a paper towel. In a saute pan over medium heat, add the bacon. Cook until tender and cooked but not crisp, flipping once, about 8 minutes. Remove to the paper-towel lined plate. Let cool and then chop.
  3. To the pan with the bacon drippings, add the onion and cook until tender, soft and translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. To a large bowl, add the baked beans, molasses, dark brown sugar, barbecue sauce and bacon mixture. Pour the mixture into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and bake, uncovered, for about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
