Baked Beans

This easy and delicious small batch recipe of Homemade Baked Beans is packed full of onion and bacon. Ketchup, molasses, and brown sugar give these baked beans a sweet barbecue flavor and are slow cooked in the oven.

This is a small batch recipe for two. Special thanks to my Mother-In-Law for passing down to me the full size recipe which you can make by doubling the ingredients.

These beans go great served with these Swiss Cheese Chicken Salad Sandwiches or these Gyro Style Pita Sandwiches.
