Veto lurrves 'em.
They're quick, they're easy.
They're saucy and spicy.
You really have to try them.
Barbecue Baked Beans a la Saucy
5-6 pieces of bacon, trimmed of fat
1/2 medium onion, chopped
3 - 8 oz cans baked beans in tomato sauce
1 small (approx 6 ounce) can of crushed pineapple, drained
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
freshly ground pepper
Cut the bacon into 1/2" pieces, give or take. You can't get this wrong. If you only have three slices of bacon left in the package, well, that's just going to have to work. In a large pot over medium heat, brown the bacon and the onions together until the bacon is thoroughly cooked but not crispy.
Remove the bacon and onions to drain on a piece of paper towel, removing all bacon grease from the pot. Return the pot to the stovetop over low heat and pour the beans and drained pineapple together.
Add the remaining ingredients, including the cooked bacon and onions. As for the pepper, Veto likes his beans on the zesty/spicy side so Saucy doesn't worry about adding a few extra turns of the pepper mill. A few more drops of Tabasco aren't a bad idea, either. Just do a little taste test as you go along. If you like your side dishes on the spicy side, then go for it.
Again, you can't get this wrong.
Cook lightly over low heat for about ten minutes and serve as a side dish to any grilled meat (these are especially delicious with ribs and coleslaw).
And remember, you can't get these wrong.
