These sweet and savory Easy Baked Beans are a no-brainer for your summer cookout. Made with thick bacon, fresh green pepper and plenty of brown sugar, they make a delicious side everyone will love.


  • 8 slices thick-sliced bacon
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 (28 ounce) cans pork and beans
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 3 quart or 9×13-inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. Cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove and set aside. Keep the bacon drippings in the pan.
  3. Add the chopped onion and green pepper to the pan with the bacon drippings and let sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Cut the bacon into small pieces. Reserve about 2 tablespoons to garnish the top of the beans with.
  5. In a large bowl, mix together the beans, the remaining bacon pieces, brown sugar, ketchup, yellow mustard, sauteed onions and green pepper.
  6. Spoon into prepared dish. Sprinkle with the reserved bacon pieces.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for about 60-75 minutes or until beans are thickened and bubbly.
