These baked beans are my favorite BBQ side dish. Who doesn’t like a savory side dish bursting with bacon? This recipe is so easy to make and IF there are leftovers, they taste even better the next day.

Easy and Delicious Baked Beans

Homemade – ish

So, these baked beans are kind of homemade:). Kind of, because you do start with a big can of pork and beans, which some would serve on their own. For this recipe, the pork and beans are just another ingredient and the end product is something special.

Serve immediately or make ahead of time.

These delicious beans are great straight from the oven, but you can also make them a couple of days before you need them. These baked beans are on my short list of foods that taste even better the next day. To reheat, just pop them in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Get ready to love these beans and make them often. Enjoy.
