Granny’s Baked Beans
Granny’s Baked Beans
Every family has someone who’s famous for that one recipe. In my family it’s my granny and its definitely her baked beans. These famous baked beans are present at all of our family gatherings including my wedding! Everyone who eats these raves about them. I was blessed to have Granny come over and show me all her secrets which I am now sharing with you all! I will warn you though, if you take these baked beans to your next gathering you will unofficially become the baked bean person. Which, actually might not be a bad thing considering these are so simple to make!
When making these baked beans you should use a smaller roaster than what I used. I am on an extreme budget so I just used what I had on hand. It worked ok but the smaller roaster would have been much better. Also, adding the bacon and hot dogs to the baked beans last is a very important step, if you don’t the bacon will become very soggy. I guess if you prefer soggy bacon you could do it this way, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
If you plan on making these baked beans for a crowd I would plan on doubling this recipe. In my opinion, it’s always better to have a little left over than not enough. Plus, when you make a recipe as delicious as these baked beans you will want some left overs to munch on for later.
Hope you enjoy this recipe. If you decide to make this recipe this week, I’d love to hear from ya! You can drop a comment below or message me on any of my social media pages.

|Prep Time||20 minutes|
- 1 41 oz. can Pork & Beans (do not drain)
- 1 16 oz. can Pork & Beans ( do not drain)
- 1 15.5 oz. can Butter Beans ( drain 3/4 of water from can)
- 2 15 oz. cans tomato sauce
- 3 Cups brown sugar ( Do not pack)
- 1 pound bacon (cut in half, fry, and drain grease)
- 1 pound hot dogs (slice into coins)
- In a small roaster, pour both cans of Pork & Beans, discarding any pieces of fat, into the roaster. Next, drain 3/4 of the liquid out of the butter beans and pour the rest into the roaster. Add both cans of tomato sauce, brown sugar and stir. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 1 1/2 -2 hours stirring occasionally. While beans are cooking, cut bacon in half and fry until crispy. Drain bacon of grease but do not drain grease from frying pan. Cut hot dogs into coins and cook in bacon grease. Be careful when doing this as the grease will splatter. I like to carefully add one spoonful of hot dogs to the grease before adding the rest. This keeps the grease from splattering so much. Fry hot dogs until browned and caramelized. Drain hot dogs on a paper towel from the grease. Right before serving baked beans add hot dogs and bacon.
